Hors d'Age Grande Champagne

Triple "S" / Grande Champagne
40% abv

Opening bouquet emits echoes of once-ripe fruit, oak and cheese-like rancio. Aeration assists this bouquet by adding touches of prunes and black plum. Palate entry offers flavors of bittersweet chocolate, orange pekoe tea and cocoa butter. Midpalate comes on strong with vivid tastes of toasted walnut, almond butter, bacon fat and brown sugar. Aftertaste is rich, almost syrupy.

At first on the nose are notes of dried hazelnut, dried apricots and figs, followed slowly by hints of cocoa, honey and smooth spices like white pepper and coriander. On the palate, the aromatic notes deepen into candied orange and gingerbread, leading to a smooth and voluptuous finish with exquisite depth that seems to go on forever, with notes of leather and fine cigar.

Louis Royer 32

Louis Royer

Grand Champagne
43% abv

Everything about this Cognac is original. Its colour, a unique copper bronze. Its generosity. Its aromas and flavours, which convey the time spent waiting for you. Its spicy notes drawn from the old cellars, together with hints of walnut and hazelnut, the result of slow maturing and fully conserved natural and powerful cocoa notes. Persistent smoothness and balsamic notes are enveloped by delicate iris perfumes. Finally, a mature soul, both solitary and rich, this “rancio” that every lover of Cognac searches for.

Deep amber color. Aromas of buttery toffee, floral bath soap, raisins, cola nut, and delicate maple syrup follow through on a rich, supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity full body with complex waves of dried fruits, exotic spices, leather, anise, cocoa, dried lavender, and sandalwood. Finishes with a seemingly endless, evolving peppery wood spice finish. Magnificent!
