Age du fruit, Léopold Gourmel

The Age du Fruit “10 Carats” of Léopold Gourmel is a 13 years old blend of Fins Bois eaux-de-vies. It’s at 40% abv. 750ml 

Léopold Gourmel was a wise man, who knew about the important things in life. Léopold founded the small Cognac house, which produces about 100.000 bottles per year.  Gourmels is able to handle the whole chain of production: from the vineyard, wine production, distilling, aging. All Cognac are strictly vintage spirits, no blends.

Very brief review:

Delicate bitterness, fresh almond, richer, more mature notes. Thicker, more oily, longer in the cheeks, all the way to the throat. Beautiful finish, preserved fruits, citrus, apricot, orange zest, lemon peel.
Color: Pale Gold
On the nose: Slightly bitter, almonds, grounded notes.
Taste: Fruits, citrus, peach – honey but not too sweet, round highlight – steady, well balanced finish

The grade of this Cognac is a XO.
