Growth area & soil: Bons Bois
The Louis Royer Distillerie Chantal Bons Bois Cognac is an interesting VSOP quality cognac that, as the name suggests, is made from eaux-de-vie from the Bons Bois region of Cognac.
Part of the Louis Royer Distillery Collection, Chantal Bons Bois is a unique combination that has created a distinct taste so typical of this lesser known terroir. The gentle climate and favourable soil impart their stamp on the grapes grown here - and this is, of course, noticeable in the cognac produced.
Light gold in color, on the nose it exudes spices, toffee, and vanilla. On the palate the taste is simple yet rounded - and has a surprisingly long finish for a cognac of this age.
The quality of the cognac has been recognized by it being awarded the Gold Medal in the 2008 International Spirit Challenge in the UK.
About Louis Royer Cognac
Famous for its bee emblem, Cognac Louis Royer traces its history back to the year 1853 and is known for a wide range of quality cognacs and Pineau. Creating cognacs from all six terroirs of the Cognac growing region, the offices and cellars of Louis Royer remain in the town of Jarnac on the banks of the Charente River where they were set up over 150 years ago. Very much continuing with the traditional methods championed by the cognac house’s name sake, Louis Royer boasts five generations of family experience and skill that continue to produce a full range of cognacs distributed on a world wide scale.
