Normandin-Mercier Petite Champagne "7 Years Old" VSOP Cognac
41.5% ABV, 750ml, 7 years minimum age Brilliant, clear, beautiful and luminous golden amber color and look.
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.
Subtle floral nose, honeysuckle and violet. Subtly spicy with a touch of licorice. Lively cognac perfect for long drink and cocktails.
