Paul Giraud VSOP Grande Champagne Cognac

Best Buy

Opening sniffs detect soft aromas of clay, white grapes, and banana; aeration fails to further develop the bouquet, which is disappointing. Palate entry is medium-bodied, satiny and properly toffee-like; midpalate tastes include oak, sawdust, white raisins, figs and almonds. Ends well with good fruit-acid balance and elegance. P.P.
