Bourgoin - Verjus (organic)
Verjus is the acidic juice extracted from unripe grapes (also known as raisins verts). At Bourgoin, it is made from Ugni Blanc grapes usually used for the production of quality cognacs.
With an acidity equivalent to that of a lime (2.5 pH), it offers an ecological alternative to citrus, often imported from South America. It can be used for cooking or in cocktails. It is unfiltered: a slight deposit, a sign of quality, may be present at the bottom of the bottle. Store in the fridge after opening.
Maison Bourgoin is a family estate that bears the Bourgoin name since 1930. Located in the village of Tarsac in the commune of Saint Saturnin (Charente), the property includes 90 hectares of vineyards.
Maëlys Bourgoin and her brother Frédéric offer cognacs made with no blending, no filtration, no coloring and no added sugar. The batches are bottled by vintage, by terroir (premiers bois ou fins bois ou petite champagne), and by cask (single cask). The old vintages are sold without dilution, full proof. Reductions are always made with rainwater to optimize the aromas. The bottling is done by hand and at the estate.
