A truly great Cognac is always a discovery – just like Larsen VSOP.
The very special distillation procedure is a crucial part of Larsen Cognac style: after vinification a rapid distillation of the wines takes place without the lees, in order to preserve the original fruity aromas of the grapes and produce eaux-de-vie of superior elegance and finesse.
Particular attention is paid to the “coeur de la bonne chauffe,” that crucial moment in the life of a Larsen Cognac when the master distiller tastes the eaux-de-vie to select only the very finest – the tiny proportion which will be transferred to oak barrels.
What it tastes like
Nose: Intense with aromas of crystallized fruits and spices, complemented by dry fig, cinnamon and vanilla. Mouth: The legendary freshness and distinctive fruity taste is balanced perfectly with oak to create a long finish.
