Growth area & soil: Petite Champagne
The Normandin Mercier VSOP Cognac is a great introduction to the talent and passion of this ancient cognac house. Offering exceptional value for money, this is a very versatile VSOP quality blend to have in your cabinet. It can be enjoyed in many ways - the house suggests as an aperitif, or with a mixer to create a long drink, or even as a base in your favorite cocktail.
This is a blend created solely from the Petite Champagne growing region of Cognac - and it imparts so many of the qualities that makes the grapes grown here worthy of the title of 'fine champagne'.
Norman Mercier VSOP
I enjoyed this cognac. It was apart of the cognac advent calendar box I got around the end of November. I have found 11 different cognacs from that box that I am purchasing. I think that was a great move , I got the chance to try all these different cognac. I wish there was more samplers boxes to try and make better decision about great cognacs. The following was my assessment.
Nose-fruity, floral, hint of honey
Taste - Very light and fruity (a must for my collection)
