Perfect harmony and balance of aromas Aroma is everything for cognac. The character of each individual note is shaped by its terroir, grape, cask and years of maturation. This is why Courvoisier takes great care to nurture every possible aroma at every possible stage of the cognac-making process. In recognition of this quality Courvoisier is consistently awarded in numerous spirits competition (IWSC and San Francisco spirits competition). Jasmine The distillation on the lees is a complex and meticulous process but it gives our VSOP Fine Cognac fruity and musk notes, evoking jasmine aroma. Toasted almond From our insistence on ageing in oak barrels. After several years in our French fine-grained oak barrels, the spirit develops nutty notes and ages to produce a sweet, caramelized flavor resembling that of toasted almonds. Peach Evolving from the meticulous selection of the best wines from cognac region, which, when distilled and aged, begin to conjure the soft, luscious aroma of ripe peach.
