Amber core with a bronze rim; shows mellow walnut, warm spices, cocoa and prunes on the nose. Mellow attack on the palate, but not cloying thanks to a delicious freshness and texture.
Symbolic of the Janneau house style, the VSOP is a perfect blend of carefully selected eaux-de-vie, some matured for up to 20 years in new oak casks in their ancient cellars. The VSOP is a blend of spirits distilled from white wines from the Baco grape, Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche grape varieties, produced in the two main areas of the Appellation Controlée: Bas Armagnac and Tenaréze. It is also a combination of two different types of distillation: a double distillation in pot stills and a single distillation in a continuous still.
Bright amber colour. Aromas of dried lilac, honey, figs, and toasted nuts follow through on a lively, tangy entry to a fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body with white chocolate and caramel notes. Finishes with a lingering honeyed golden raisin toasted and spice fade. A delicious appetizing Armagnac that will be great on its own, in cocktails, or even with food.
This velvety rich cognac is the perfect expression of Fine Champagne opulence on the palate with mature flavours of plums and candied oranges, along with a hint of hazelnuts and cinnamon. The nose is a wide spectrum of aromas from late summer fruits to flowers such as jasmine.
