A de Fussigny Grande Champagne Collection Cognac: the Expression of Premier Cru Perfection
Part of the "Collection Range" by A de Fussigny, the Grande Champagne VSOP Cognac is an exquisite expression of a young Grande Champagne blend, celebrating the unique taste of the terroir brought about by its rough limestone and chalky soil. Showcasing the perfection that can be found in the premier cru, this VSOP has a particularly complex character for a Cognac of this age, with notes of candied fruits, hot pastry, licorice and rancio.
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.
