A de Fussigny Fins Bois Collection Cognac: Capturing the Unique Aromas Found Only in Fins Bois
The A de Fussigny Fins Bois Collection Cognac is part of the Les Crus du Cognac Collection, a select single cru collection of XO Cognacs produced by the esteemed estate, which celebrates the unique qualities of each individual terroir. The Fins Bois terroir is known for its red clay and limestone soil which tends to produce fresh and fruity eaux-de-vie. Many consider the terroir to be the third best in Cognac, after Petite and Grande Champagne of course.
Located on the banks of the Charente river, this 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 render this region famous. Their more than 200-year-old cellars allow the aging process to take place in a humid environment, offering a unique and high quality to every Cognac that A De Fussigny produce.
A typical Fins Bois Cognac releases aromas of freshly pressed grapes, delivering a fresh and fruity drinking experience with every sip. This single cru Fins Bois Collection Cognac certainly captures this aspect of its region, despite its older age, with strong and sweet notes of raisin and prune that develop onto both nose and palate with a hint of citrus fruit in the form of marmalade.
