Cognac Pierre Lecat - VSOP
This VSOP (aged in oak barrels for at least four years) offers strong notes of vanilla and wood, along with aromas of rose, violet, apricot and orange marmalade. They are supported by light notes of port and hazelnut, and a pleasant touch of licorice. Very supple on the palate, it shows a good balance between fruity and floral notes, and the flavors and aromas linger for several minutes. Its warmth is already remarkable for its maturity. It can be enjoyed neat or on ice.
The Pierre Lecat house was created in the mid 1950’s, when the grandfather of the current co-owner Jean-Luc Lassoudière returned to the Charente to rebuild the family farm and replant vines. Pierre Lecat, Jean-Luc Lassoudière's father-in-law and a renowned watchmaker in the region, was both the inspiration for the House and its benefactor in times of need.
The vineyard, located in Fins Bois, covers 25 hectares, of which 20 hectares are dedicated to the production of Cognac brandy. The Ugni blanc constitutes today more than 90% of the vines, the Colombard and the Folle Blanche completing it.
