Floral Delights: Prince Hubert de Polignac Reserve VSOP Cognac
The Prince Hubert de Polignac VSOP Reserve Cognac is a blend comprising eaux-de-vie from the Premier Cru terroir of Grande Champagne, aged for a minimum of four years. The attractive Grande Champagne growing region is famed for delivering Cognacs displaying exceptional depth of flavor and complex floral aromas, often followed by a lengthy finish. An upper premium VSOP, yet at a reasonable price, this expression has deservedly won several awards.
Prince de Polignac Cognac is named after one of France's oldest noble families, members of which include Cardinal De Polignac (French ambassador in Poland and Rome in the 17th century), Countess Yolande de Polignac - a personal friend of Marie Antoinette - and Prince Jules de Polignac, a cabinet minister under Charles X. It was their descendant, Prince Hubert de Polignac, who eventually allowed the Cognac producer Mounier to use his name for one of their bottlings in 1947. After the trademark was registered, the Prince himself took to travelling the world to promote the brand, sealing its association with royalty, adventure and luxury.
