The Cognac of Francois Voyer is produced on the Voyer family's estate, planted to just 28 hectares, located inbetween Verrières and Ambleville, in Cognac's most prestigious appellation, Grande Champagne. This is a generous, spicy 5 year old Cognac.

First tasted 26/06/2009: Gold with pale straw hue. Dusty, dried flower top note, then heavier aromas of stewed apricots, clove, honey and creamy vanilla. The medium to full bodied palate offers dried fruits, creme caramel and sweet vanillan oak before building into a big, spicy oak finish. Excellent balance. Subtle, drying tannins balance the palate flavours, followed by a subtle aftertaste of liquorice allsorts, vanilla and tumeric. 40% Alc./Vol. 91 points

Retasted 02/02/2011: Deep gold colour. Attractive aromas of stewed apricot, clove and vanilla. The palate is medium bodied, entry is soft and round with ripe dried stone fruit and spice balanced by drying oak. Average length. A touch of cinnamon emerges into the drying after taste. Sound entry level VSOP but fails to thrill. 88 points
