Growth area & soil: Borderies
The Fanny Fougerat Iris Poivrée XO Cognac is a delicious blend of Borderies eaux-de-vie. There's a reason that this, the smallest terroir of the Cognac region, is becoming so sought after by Cognac afficionados, and it's simply because of the wonderfully unique characteristics the clay and flint soils impart on the grapes they produce. This is a great example of how a good Borderies Cognac should taste.
It's quite a floral Cognac, delicate and subtle, yet incredibly generous on the palate. For anyone yet to sample the delights of this innovative brand, it's sure to have you hooked–not to mention checking out the others in this small, exclusive range. The bottle is contemporary, with a label to match. If you're looking for an artisan Cognac of superb quality, then this one certainly ticks all the boxes.
About Fanny Fougerat Cognac
The house of Fanny Fougerat is named after its entrepreneurial creator, a young woman who comes from a long line of winemakers and distillers of Cognac. The brand only came into being a few years ago, with the first bottling of a Cognac to be sold under the Fanny Fougerat brand name being launched in November of 2013. However, the traditions and knowledge of this wine making family stretch back over four generations, during which time they sold their eaux-de-vie to the larger Cognac houses.
Fanny Fougerat Cognac is wonderfully 21st century, yet combined with the passion and knowledge of a truly traditional Cognac family. The resulting artisan products are fresh, vibrant, and of exceptional quality.
