What I say
A single estate Grand Champagne Cognac from the Drouet family estate located in the village of Salles d’Angles which is just 5 miles outside the town of Cognac.
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Dark gold (11/20) medium tears and legs.
- Nose: Sweet, apple, grape, dusty, icing sugar and a little chalky, gingerbread, spicy woody oak, clove, nutmeg, star anise.
- Taste: Medium-full bodied, slightly creamy, vanilla cream, sugar syrup, date, almond, silky on the palate with gingerbread, spiced cinnamon and ginger, brown sugar and golden syrup.
- Finish: Long, sweet and spiced, soft gingerbread biscuits.
Deliciously soft and inviting like spiced gingerbread melting in your mouth.
