A single estate Leyrat Cognac from the Fins Bois
The Chez Milliard estate, situated in the Fins Bois, has developed quite a reputation for producing standalone single estate Cognacs of superior quality. This one is the Leyrat Assemblage No.1, that has come about as a result of a rigorous selection process of eaux-de-vie.
A great Cognac for bartenders, it is easy drinking and has notes of brown sugar, marzipan, orange peel spice and summer fruits.
What makes this estate so special? The 90 hectares of vineyards are primely located on top of a hill, with an optimum limestone subsoil that creates a unique type of eaux-de-vie that are simultaneously fine and elegant. Founded by the Domaine Francis Abecassis, they are best known for their single estate Cognacs.
