Rastignac Cognac is made in the glorious setting of the Chateau des Plassons, in the Bons Bois terroir of Cognac. Run by two brothers, David and Julien Pannaud, not only does this cognac house sell its produce under the label of Rastignac Cognac, but also that of the name of the chateau, Cognac Chateau des Plassons. With wine making in their blood, it comes as no surprise that these brothers felt compelled to leave their regular jobs in Paris and return to work in an industry that their father and grandfather before them loved. The Pannaud brother’s story began in 2008, when they made the life changing decision to buy into this beautiful old chateau, and make the creation of cognac their life ambition.
An amber colour with a subtle nose of vanilla hinting at aromas of dried fruit. A rich, balanced cognac. The Gautier VSOP can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in a long drink with soda, to enjoy all of its refreshing flavours.
Is this VSOP elegant? Yes. The Cognac Camus VSOP has a contemporary, modern look and taste. Rather easy to consume, suggested as a cocktail mixer. On the nose: round notes of fruits, some almond aromas. On the palate: Fresh, light wood and a rather smooth finish.
Eye : Dark amber
Nose : Toasted wood, vanilla, pears, and essence of spring flowers
Palate : Baked autumn fruits mingle with a note of roasted hazelnuts. The flavour is long lasting, with a satisfyingly refined, yet spicy, finish
Tasting review by producer:
On the eye - a golden color.
On the nose, a fine aroma with notes of grapes, vanilla, walnut, and chocolate.
On the palate - the taste is smooth fruity, with light aftertaste of nuts.
