The Cognac VSOP from Cognac Bowen is a full-bodied, refined brandy from the Ugni Blanc (80%), Colombard (15%) and Folle Blanche (5%) grape varieties.
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, together with floral notes and fine wood nuances - thanks to the ageing in limousine oak. On the palate, this French brandy is wonderfully warm and gentle with a full-bodied body that is absorbed by the wonderful aromas of the nose. The long reverberation is very elegant and is accompanied by fine spices (vanilla) and oak wood.Vinification of the Cognac
Bowen VSOP The grapes for this cognac are harvested very early and fermented
to a strong acidic white wine. The acid protects against oxidation as cognac is not sulphurized. This base wine is now distilled twice in a copper burner using the traditional Charentaiser distillation process. Wooden barrels made of limousine oak are selected for maturation. This cognac matures for at least 4 - 5 years.
