François Voyer Extra 40 Year Old Grande Champagne Cognac

Brilliant, new-copper-penny color. This bouquet is biscuity, fruity and off-dry, but distant; aeration works miracles, as the aroma opens up with scents of nuts, hard candy, honey, cinnamon and oak. Palate entry is polite, intensely fruity, off-dry and lip-smacking; midpalate features delicious flavors of baked pear, nectarine, white raisins and oaky vanilla. Aftertaste is long, smoldering hot, biscuity again and semisweet. A luscious Cognac that takes time to evolve. P.P.
