Details

Cognac Leyrat VSOP, superb, smooth, sweet spice, traditional. This VSOP from Leyrat really is a superb quality cognac using eaux de vie from the Fins Bois region. Only the finest distillate is used, and is blended to produce an average age far superior the the normal requirements of VSOP status. Produced at the vineyards at Domaine de Chez Maillard, this is a very elegant cognac with stewed fruits and balanced oak.

Francis Abécassis is one of the largest vineyard owners, within the Cognac appellation, with 240 hectares of vines. Each estate, Leyrat in the Fins Bois Cru and Reviseur in the Petite Champagne Cru, lies on a site which is particularly well exposed to the sun and perfectly orientated, each with their own individual terroir. Both, however, have the chalky soil which is a key to producing elegant and subtle cognacs with great ageing potential. Leyrat Cognacs undergo a triple ageing process, spending 6 months ageing in new oak, and then finishing their ageing in 2 sets of used barrels to give a more delicate finish. All of the bottlings go far beyond the required age statement, with the XO for example including nearly 100 year old Cognacs in the blend. These are outstanding Cognacs to be savoured and enjoyed.
