Normandin-Mercier Fine Champagne 15 Years Old Prestige Cognac
40% ABV, 750ml, 15 years minimum age Blend of Grande Champagne (brings sharpness and length) and Petite Champagne (subtlety, delicacy and sweetness).
Since 1872, five generations have contributed to the development of the prestigious Normandin-Mercier Cognacs. The family has build its fame by perfecting the art of blending and ageing cognacs in an exceptional geographical site on their estate, the Domaine de La Péraudière.
Normandin Mercier cognacs are made with about 90% Ugni Blanc, and 10% of Colombard and Folle Blanche, a very rare and unique blend compared to other cognacs.
Normandin Mercier cognacs are matured in the family chateau’s traditional cellars near the town of La Rochelle, the historic medieval port that made Cognac famous many centuries ago. The proximity of the ocean, the natural regulation of hygrometry and oceanic temperature all favor the ageing of the cognacs, giving them fullness, elegance and a unique character.
The Production: 25,000 bottles per year
It’s important to note that Normandin-Mercier cognacs contain no artificial coloring and are not subject to a cold filtration in order to preserve a total purity of the aromas and flavors.
Blend of Grande Champagne (brings sharpness and length) and Petite Champagne (subtlety, delicacy and sweetness). Flavors of fruits, almond and plum with a rich and fat, but clean finish. Aged 2 years in 350L new barrels, then moved a 600L barrels.
REVIEWS 96 points / Best of 2017 / Top 100 Spirits on 2017 "Nuanced and complex, this shows a floral lilt up front, segueing into more substantial vanilla and honey aromas. The palate is relatively dry, with cocoa and leather lightening to ginger spice and hints of tropical fruit." (Wine Enthusiast, 2017)
