Growth area & soil: Petite Champagne
The Esteve Selection Coup de Coeur Cognac is an excellent XO quality blend from this hands-on cognac house. Created from eaux-de-vies solely from the Petite Champagne terroir, each has been aged for a minimum of 20 years.
The result is a cognac that seduces with floral (especially jasmine) aromas, and continues with a delicate, light, and subtle palate. Of course, such a creation has naturally been recognised with many awards. These include the following:
2002 – Silver at the Saveurs de Poitou-Charentes
2003 – Silver at the Concours Général Agricole de Paris
2003 – Gold at the Concours des Vignerons Indépendants de France
