This cognac contains the finest eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne cru, the most exclusive in the Cognac region, that have been aged in our warehouses for over two decades in hand selected Troncais oak barrels. 21 years is the perfect time for these specific eaux-de-vie to develop their full richness and heightened aromatic style. On the nose, the first notes are dried hazelnut, dried apricots and figs, followed slowly by notes of cocoa, honey and smooth spices like white pepper and coriander. The finish brings subtle notes of leather and fine cigar. On the palate, the aromatic notes deepen into candied orange and gingerbread, leading to a smooth and voluptuous finish with exquisite depth that seems to go on forever.
As befitting our innovative nature, the Courvoisier Connoisseur Collection are the first releases from one of the major cognac houses to be graded by an age declaration, like whisky, rather than the more conventional grading of cognac, like VS, VSOP and XO. Courvoisier 21 Year Old features unique and extraordinary cognac not less than 21 years old, allowing the maturing cognac to blossom and achieve its full aroma and flavour potential.
