Roullet VSOP Grande Champagne Cognac
The Roullet VSOP Grande Champagne Cognac is a superb quality blend from the premier terroir of the Cognac growing region. It offers exceptional balance, roundness, and complexity, taking the taster on a journey of the senses from beginning to end. For a cognac of VSOP quality, it is a pleasant surprise of sophistication that sits far above its low price tag.
Produced by a Cognac house dating back to 1772, which was amongst the first to sell Cognac’s in glass bottles, it is easy to see how such a superb Cognac came into existence. With an impressive sense of history, Roullet knows exactly what it takes to produce a truly exceptional Cognac. It is thanks to such a rich heritage that this VSOP sits far beyond its title.
Presentation of the bottle
Showcasing sophistication from first glance, the sleek presentation of this VSOP instantly captures a hint at the expertise that awaits. Royal gold and emerald green offer a rich decor nodding to the depth that lies beneath. Finished in a mahogany presentation box, it is clear to see what exceptional value for money this selection is. Perfectly suited as a gift.
How to enjoy
This cognac is truly versatile and a great staple for any drinks cabinet. Great as a digestif, or for a daring change, drop in a block of ice to subtly change the tasting experience.
