Bache Gabrielsen VSOP Fine Cognac
Bache Gabrielsen VSOP Fine Cognac is made from a blend eaux-de-vie from Ugni Blanc grapes grown in the regions of Fins Bois and Petite Champagne. Allowed to mature for around seven years in oak barrels, significantly longer than the established four year rule for a VSOP, this Cognac has developed a clean and smooth taste. The wonderful fruity aromas and freshly pressed grape characteristics are due to its predominantly Fins Bois eaux-de-vie, however the touch of Petite Champagne brings a beautiful elegance to the palate.
Eye: Translucent golden amber.
Nose: The nose reveals aromas of mature wood and vanilla, layered with dried fruity notes of apricot, dates and almonds.
Palate: A mellow and well-rounded palate offering fruity notes of apricots and fresh pressed grape characteristics, with subtle hints of wood and some spicy vanilla tones that carry through to the long and surprisingly lively finish.
Bache Gabrielsen is a family-run Cognac house that was founded in 1905 by Norwegian immigrant Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen de Holmestrand. Several generations later, the company is managed by the founder’s great-grandson, Hervé Bache-Gabrielse and its high quality cognacs are produced under the watchful eye of experienced cellar master, Jean-Philippe Bergier.
