Description

A Prized VSOP Cognac from the Cognac Region’s Premier Cru

House Trijol’s esteemed Cognac is a superior blend of Ugni Blanc grapes, harvested from the bountiful vineyards of the Grande Champagne terroir. The Maxime Trijol VSOP Cognac is perhaps the most revered offering from this Maison synonymous with quality and steeped in tradition. With an impressive eight awards to its name, it is the combination of more mature eaux-de vie balanced with a joyous youthful exuberance that sets this Cognac apart. 

To this day, the family continues to oversee each step of the production process and it’s thanks to this intimate relationship between maker and métier that the House of Maxime Trijol can deliver this Very Superior Old Pale Cognac imbued with a heady bouquet of vanilla, spices and dried fruit - all brought to life by a rich golden yellow hue.

To create the Trijol Very Superior Old Pale Cognac, Ugni Blanc grapes are crushed and pressed between September and October, and juices fermented without sulfur dioxide. The wine is then kept upon the lees, and according to AOC Cognac rules, from March 31st onwards the wines are transformed into Cognac over double distillation. The Charente method is preferred, which consists of double heating in the traditional pot still. It is then matured in Limousin French oak barrels before bottling.

The Trijol VSOP Cognac is a multiple award-winner, and has caught the attention of critics worldwide:

  • New York International Spirits Competition 2017: Gold Medal, Cognac Producer of the Yea
  • Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America 2016: Gold Medal

Serving Suggestions

This VSOP Cognac is best enjoyed neat at room temperature, but its lively floral aromas would also be beautifully expressed in a Perfect Lady Cocktail:

  • 60ml Maxime Trijol VSOP Grande Champagne
  • 22.5ml peach liqueur
  • 22.5ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 15ml egg white
  • Angostura Bitters (garnish)
