Chalfonte Special Reserve Cognac
Chalfonte “Special Reserve” (Replacing the “VSOP” on the label) Grande Fine Cognac is made from white grapes grown in the Grande Champagne cru. The Grande Champagne terroir is characterized by a maritime climate and chalky soils over limestone and sandstone. Chalfonte is distilled, aged and blended in limited quantity in the heart of the Cognac region.
Chalfonte Special Reserve Cognac pours to a golden honey color. The aroma is apricot, vanilla, spice, fresh smashed grape, oak, and berry, with a floral backing. The sweet juicy grape entry is joined by berry flavor building to a tart peak. It fades with apricot, vanilla and cream and finishes warm, semidry, and peppery with leather, oak, licorice, and orange rind taste.
