The Cognac VSOP from Cognac Bowen is a full-bodied, refined brandy from the grape varieties Ugni Blanc (80%), Colombard (15%) and Folle Blanche (5%).
In the glass this cognac shimmers in a warm mahogany with golden brown reflections. The elegant bouquet combines fruity aromas of juicy plums and ripe pears with floral notes and fine wood nuances - thanks to the ageing in Limousin oak. On the palate, this French brandy is wonderfully warm and gentle, with a full-bodied body that is taken up by the wonderful aromas of the nose. The long finish is very elegant and is accompanied by fine spices (vanilla) and oak wood.
Vinification of Cognac Bowen VSOP
The grapes for this cognac are harvested very early and fermented to an acidic white wine. The acidity protects against oxidation, as cognac is not sulphurised. This base wine is now distilled twice in the copper kettle according to the traditional charentaiser distillation process. Wooden barrels from Limousin oak are chosen for the maturation. This cognac matures in these barrels for at least 4 - 5 years.
