Growth area & soil: Fins Bois
The Louis Royer Distillerie d'Aumagne Fins Bois Cognac is a delightfully unique VSOP cognac created solely from eaux-de-vie from the Fins Bois terroir.
Part of the Louis Royer Distillery range, this is created from wines grown in the northern region of the Fins Bois cru. The subtle taste of cognacs from here are due in part to the fact that the soil contains clay. This makes the ground wet in the winter and bone dry in the summer - hence vines growing here need great attention and skill.
This is a delightful cognac, and one that's won the following awards:
2010 - UK INTERNATIONAL SPIRITS CHALLENGE - Gold
2013 - UK INTERNATIONAL WINE AND SPIRIT COMPETITION - Gold
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.
