- ABV 40%
Launched in 2010, this is one of the new highlights in Courvoisier’s core range.
Sub titled “The Connoisseur Collection”,it also marks a departure from convention. The Cognac category has not been able to declare age statements because of BNIC restrictions involving tracking and certification. To get around this, Courvoisier had the idea to establish an in-house tracking system to allow declaration of age on specific eaux-de-vie. That was over two decades ago. It’s a development that's been unpopular with several rival houses, as Cognacs have traditionally been marketed with only rough estimates regarding age. Clearly, Courvoisier's is a strategic move aimed to appeal to other spirits consumers, such as Malt Whisky drinkers.
Of the new marque, Master Blender, Patrice Pinet comments "21 years old is not only the coming of age for many young adults but also for Connoisseurs who want to enjoy a perfect Grande Champagne." While it reportedly contains up to 8 grams / litre of sugar (up to 15 grams/litre is permitted) it's free from boise. Pinet adds, “It’s not our style…We prefer floral notes, not the tannins that boise would bring”.
Sourced from the finest eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne, 21 years is considered the perfect time for eaux-de-vie to develop their full richness and heightened aromatic style. This promises notes of dried hazelnut, dried apricots and figs, followed by cocoa and honey, leather and fine cigar. The aromas follow through on the palate with candied orange and gingerbread, and an exquisite depth that seems to go on forever. Great reviews, but very limited stocks.
