François Voyer XO Grande Champagne Cognac: an Orchard of Flavor
The François Voyer XO Grande Champagne Cognac is a blend of Premier Cru eaux-de-vie aged between 10 and 25 years. Only high-acidity Ugni Blanc grapes have been used for this blend, giving it a fantastic fruity structure. French oak barrels from the Limousin, Bercée, Gâvre and Reno Valdieu forests are used for aging Voyer Cognac, housed in both damp and dry cellars to optimise the character of each individual cask. After decades of waiting, the eaux-de-vie in the blend come together in a fabulous symphony of orchard fruit notes complemented by oak and vanilla.
The Chauchet-Voyer family have been distilling and aging eaux-de-vie in oak barrels since the 1870s – for over five generations. Focusing on the Grande Champagne cru, they work with numerous winegrowers in the area, as the domaine itself is a small-scale producer with only 28 hectares of land. They are, however, dedicated to maintaining a sustainable agriculture approach to protect biodiversity and public health and was one of the first 20 domains to obtain the High Environmental Value (HEV) certification.
House François Voyer was passed on to Cellar Master Pierre Vaudon to carry on the work of generations and maintain the identity of Voyer Cognac. This Extra Old expression is the culmination of over two decades of labor, showing the finesse and beauty of the Grande Champagne in every drop. Just wonderful.
