Description

Menard VSOP Cognac: a Product of Ancestral Knowledge and Skill

Aged for a minimum of four years in Limousin oak, Menard VSOP Cognac represents a wonderful young expression of the Grande Champagne, showing clear notes of grapevine blossom and orchard fruits. The chalky soils of this famous world-famous terroir allow vines to extract water during even the hottest months, resulting in plump and acidic Ugni Blanc grapes; the perfect conditions for creating quality eaux-de-vie. 

A house of heritage and history, for nearly two centuries the Menard family have cultivated their vineyards. The official land registry records show that in 1815 Jean Menard owned a sizeable plot of land and was already distilling spirits for the local community. Remaining true to their ancestral expertise, this 80-hectare estate is still situated in the Premier Cru of Cognac: Grande Champagne. 

The Menard estate boasts traditional copper alembic stills to craft their eaux-de-vie according to the traditional Charentais method. This hallmark of heritage shows their dedication to tradition, while their modern design looks to the future. With just a few years of maturation, this VSOP Cognac shows just what can be done with the combination of terroir, traditional distillation and traditional oak maturation. So simple, yet so complex. 

Presentation of the Bottle

Tall and elegant, this VSOP bottling beautifully combines a traditional label design with a sleek bottle design. The heavy glass base offsets the slim shape, while the wine-red foil on the neck brings out the dark amber reflections of the contents. An elegant gift box completes the package. 

Serving Suggestion

Such a quality VSOP deserves a little time and attention. The floral and fruit notes make it the perfect accompaniment to al fresco dining in the summer; equally suited before dinner as well as after, serve this Cognac neat in tulip glasses at room temperature as a digestif, or over ice as an aperitif.
