Tasting Notes

Tasting notes by Leopold Gourmel:

Nose : A very refined expression, inner richness, tender notes, wild flowers, hawthorn, hues of nuts.
Palate : Soft and silky feeling, covering the palate with a floral fragrance, comfortable warmth and a lingering finish of while flowers.
Léopold Gourmel's craft in the Grande Champagne world : a breakthrough.

This cognac house has always relied on natural processes. From growing the grapes to picking, maturing, distilling, aging and bottling them, Gourmel cognac is free of any chemicals, pesticides or additives to enhance color in respect of nature and the final product. The philosophy of the company is to concentrate on quality not quantity, which means that one year the outcome may be higher than in others. This is further shown by the radical decision to produce only pure vintage cognacs, so there is no blending of different years in order to create VS, VSOP or XO cognacs for instance. To go with this authentic approach, the design of Gourmel is simple and modern.
