Louis Royer Distillerie d'Aumagne Fins Bois Cognac
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, it is created from wines grown in the northern region of the Fins Bois cru. The subtle taste of cognacs from here is due in part to the fact that the soil contains clay, which makes the ground wet in the winter and bone dry in the summer. Vines growing here need great attention and skill and it is this meticulous production that creates a rounded, truly embodied Cognac that has an essence for all to enjoy.
Such expertise is the result of a Cognac house born in 1853 with four generations of knowledge behind each creation. It is thanks to this rich sense of history and knowledge of what makes an exceptional Cognac that produces a selection of depth. Optimising traditional methods, it comes as no surprise that this a highly renowned piece boasting the following awards:
2010 - UK INTERNATIONAL SPIRITS CHALLENGE - Gold
2013 - UK INTERNATIONAL WINE AND SPIRIT COMPETITION - Gold
