Francois Peyrot Cognac Heritage Tres Vieux Grande Champagne Cognac 750 ml
The Francois Peyrot Cognac of Peyrot is among our favorites. They are a very small family producer in the Grande Champagne AOC in Cognac–4 or 5 people typically run the entire enterprise! They grown their own grapes, manage the cellar, and everything is done on-site. The Heritage Tres Vieux bottling is a blend of 45-year-old Cognacs and is a complex and delightful Cognac, deep rancio, succulent fruit, toasty oak, dark caramel, and a touch of honey.
This Francois Peyrot Cognac oozes style and grace, from the understated, artisan packaging to the precious Premier Cru nectar within. Francois Peyrot Heritage is a very old Cognac with a deep-reaching history. It possesses all of the desirable qualities of a well-aged Cognac; rancio, mellow tones, and elegant body. It is a personal expression of this Cognac producer, and its Hors d’Age status indicates its ability to reflect a historic moment in each part of its carefully constructed blend, as they are typically aged between 30 and 50 years. It is bottled at 43% ABV.
It is assembled with a series of Eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne cru, also known as the Premier Cru. Its name denotes its fine reputation. Thanks to millions of years of fossilization and soil rich in limestone and chalk, it makes for wonderful Eaux-de-vie such as that of the Peyrot Heritage Tres Vieille Cognac. The Grande Champagne cru is positioned optimally so as to absorb sunlight and provide excellent drainage for the grapes.
A pronounced amber gold.
The elegance of vanilla and fruit aromas.
A fantastic rancio, with noble Eaux-de-vie that are velvety and mellow.
