INTRODUCING THE VSOP

FINE CHAMPAGNE – VSOP
France, Cognac Grande Champagne

Located in Angeac Champagne, the Boinaud vineyard has belonged to the same family since 1640. Planted with Ugni Blanc and Colombard, the vineyard spans 410 hectares.

Produced with a blend of Petite and Grande Champagne, this “very superior old pale” cuvée is much more than just an after-dinner drink. It is also designed to be used in cognac based cocktails like the Vieux Carré.

With fruit, honey and delicate wood in its aroma, it overflows with exoticism on the palate, becoming increasingly unctuous, before its floral character gradually gains the upper hand. With its extremely delicate texture, the finish takes on stunningly mature autumn tones (forest floor).
