Description

The Paul Beau VSOP Cognac offers outstanding value for money for a cognac of this age - if you've not yet heard of this small, artisan producer then it's well worth a try. iA truly superlative VSOP - rich, perfectly balanced, and incredibly complex for 'only' a VSOP - we're sure that some much older cognacs went into this cuvee. It's a good standard for any long-drink, on the rocks, or simply to enjoy on its own.

The delicate balance of flavor and finesse is extraordinary at this level. Clearly the work of a blender at the very top of his game.

"Bro...gotta try this."

Finished a really good meal at a new'ish French-inspired bistro in a new'ishly hip neighborhood in a somewhat-recently food-centric town, and had basically followed the bartender's recommendations all night.

When it came to dessert, he suggested this. Since I don't normally partake in cognacs, I wasn't hopeful...but he hadn't steered me wrong so far. "Bro" this is some good cognac, especially given the price range ($13/oz).

Nose was (sorry in advance, I am NOT a sommelier) 'Nilla wafer with caramel and banana...and that is not a slight.

Palate was sorta vanilla-cherry, sorta burnt oak. It definitely made me do a "well damn..."

Aftertaste was (don't judge, grumpy-ass snobs) ever-so-slightly overburnt s'more, which sent me reeling back to campfires and songs and damn I wish I hadn't gotten so old.

Value? Worth it, definitely. For me, as an "entry" level cognac, it was perfect. For connoisseurs? Hell...no idea, you'll probably end up slagging me in the comments for my unrefined tongue. But for the random "bros" like me?

Excellent choice.


About Paul Beau Cognac

With a history dating back to the 19th century, the house of Paul Beau Cognac boasts over 100 hectares of prime Grande Champagne vineyards. As with so many of the smaller family run concerns, Beau cognac started by selling all of their eaux-de-vie to the big cognac houses. However, after the business was handed down from the founder to his son, changes were put in place to commence selling some of their wares under their own label, and the brand ‘Paul Beau’ was born.
