Tasting Notes

Tasting review by Gautier:

A golden amber colour resulting from the absorption of the tannins of the oak ageing barrels. Floral aromas with hints of toast and cinnamon.

On the palate, the taste explodes with all the aromas of candied fruit in a generous, mellow and particularly harmonious blend offering all the splendid length which is so characteristic of old Cognacs

Gautier Cognac is amongst the oldest cognac houses, with a very unique location. Gautier is based in Aigre on the Osme river, and ages in an 18th century water mill. Aigre is also referred to as the "Little Venice" of Charente. The proximity to the water and the resulting humidity and temperature in the cellars gives the cognac a recognizable taste. This cognac house unites ancient history with a modern view on the cognac market. It caters both professional cognac connoisseurs and aficionados as well as younger consumers that like to experiment with cognac and try out new and trendy cocktails.
