Leopold Gourmel VSOP Cognac

Leopold Gourmel Cognac

This edition of Leopold Gourmel's VSOP Premieres Sauvers Cognac comes in a beautiful decanter.

Léopold Gourmel VSOP Premieres Saveurs 6 Carats is a wonderful introduction into the world of natural cognacs. Because the wine is richer and stronger, the distillation process retains the beautiful aromas and concentrates the richness into the spirits. Pure vintage, strictly no additives, aged in un-toasted, extra fine grain French oak casks, and never chill-filtered. The perfect example of delicacy and finesse; not aggressive, not caramelised, not artificially woody.

The cellar master of Leopold Gourmel says of this Cognac: "“I am so proud of my 6 year old cognac that I nicknamed it 'Le P’tit Gourmel' - this translates literally as 'The Gourmel Kid'.

Tasting Notes

The nose: Fresh, supple, white fruits (pear, white peach), never aggressive.

The taste: Pure clean, Intense, a refreshing long-lasting finish.

This cognac house has always relied on natural processes. From growing the grapes to picking, maturing, distilling, aging and bottling them, Gourmel cognac is free of any chemicals, pesticides or additives to enhance color in respect of nature and the final product. The philosophy of the company is to concentrate on quality not quantity, which means that one year the outcome may be higher than in others. This is further shown by the radical decision to produce only pure vintage cognacs, so there is no blending of different years in order to create VS, VSOP or XO cognacs for instance. To go with this authentic approach, the design of Gourmel is simple and modern.
