Eye: Polished bronze. 

Nose: Initially soft, slowly opening up into confident florals: jasmine, angelica blossom and iris. Hints of browned butter give an interesting contrast.

Palate: Nutty and indulgent, with cashews and hazelnut. More florals follow, along with a little pepper and a long finish dominated by incense.

Description

A de Fussigny Borderies Collection: Unexpected and Uncompromising

This expression is from the Les Crus du Cognac Collection, comprising XO-aged bottlings from each cru. The A de Fussigny Borderies Collection Cognac is made exclusively from eaux-de-vie sourced from the small Borderies growing region, distilled on the lees and aged for a minimum of ten years in fine-grained French oak. It shows a fantastic balance of quirky tasting notes - think cashew nut, browned butter and jasmine florals - inviting drinkers to discover this underrated terroir. 

One thing any Cognac connoisseur will emphasize is the unique flavor that eaux-de-vie from the Borderies express. The soil here exerts a unique character on the grapes grown across its chalky, sandy hills and many people will be pleasantly surprised by the notes of garden florals on both the nose and palate. This superb expression will certainly hold up to the other releases in the A de Fussigny Les Crus du Cognac Collection, including the ones from neighboring Grande and Petite Champagne. 

Located on the banks of the Charente river, the A de Fussigny estate's distillery and cellars date back to 1814, rich in a history of gabarres passing by on barges, transporting and trading the precious eaux-de-vie and wine that have made this region so famous. The 200-year-old cellars here allow the aging process to take place in a stable humid environment, during which the Cognac can develop all the flavors and quality which represent the hallmarks of this brand.

Presentation of the Bottle

Tall and elegant, all the bottles in the Les Crus du Cognac series display a modern elegance befitting the quality of the liquid they contain. The label features tasting notes and matches the silver foiling on the neck. It’s a simple but effective design that is certain to suit any Cognac collection.

How to Enjoy 

This unusual Borderies Cognac is one to sip and ponder. Pour slowly into a slim tulip glass and let the liquid rest for a minute before imbibing; this will allow the aromas to develop fully, for the perfect drinking experience. If you prefer your drinks cold, a piece of ice could be added as well, though we recommend just a splash of chilled water.

About A de Fussigny Cognac

Located in the historical center of Cognac, France, A de Fussigny Cognac was established in 1814 on the banks of the iconic Charente River. The brand pushes the idea of modern luxury, incorporating tradition, authenticity and craftsmanship with modernity and innovation. The estate's 200-year-old cellar has a particularly humid environment thanks to its proximity to the river, meaning the maturation process produces a high quality and unique character to Fussigny’s Cognac. The estate boasts a selection of Cognacs from all growing terroirs, but focuses primarily on distilling eaux-de-vie from the prestigious Fine Champagne region (Petite and Grande Champagne), utilising the rich soils to concentrate on high quality and a distinct flavor profile. Using ancestral expertise and savoir-faire, the estate's seasoned cellar master blends the finest selection of eaux-de-vie to produce a particular finesse to each flavor, adding a complex character to each individual Cognac.

A de Fussigny Cognac has a no-plastic policy, ensuring they do not use or create plastic waste for their packaging.
