Cognac Lhéraud - gift box, 4 x 20cl
An elegant box with four cognacs to discover the Lheraud House, each with a distinct identity: VSOP, Cuvée 20 Renaissance, XO Charles VII and the 1990 vintage Petite Champagne.
- VSOP : Balanced and dry. Stewed white fruits, raisin aromas, a touch of vanilla and a hint of crème brûlée on the finish, as well as a touch of citrus.
- Cuvée 20 Renaissance : Concentrated and generous, warmly spiced, with hints of vanilla, cinnamon, and orange zest.
- XO Charles VII: Complex, with flavors of blackcurrant, vanilla, hazelnut and roast, all with a beautiful balance and a long finish.
- Petite Champagne 1990: Powerful on the nose, with rich and present tannins, woody notes and aromas of vanilla and chocolate. A long and pleasantly warm finish.
The history of the Lhéraud family goes back to 1680, when Alexandre Lhéraud, living in Petite Champagne, planted vines in his garden. Victor, Jean, Pierre, Eugène, Rémy and finally Guy followed. The latter, with his wife Andrée and their son Laurent, contributed to make Lhéraud a brand recognized worldwide.
It is at the Lasdoux estate, in the commune of Angeac, behind the walls of an old house, that the soul of the estate resides. The five cellars made of blonde Charente stone, where the Limousin oak barrels rest, allow for natural aging, without addition or reduction. This is what gives Lhéraud cognacs, armagnacs and pineaux their incomparable flavor.
The vineyards cover 85 hectares planted with ugni blanc, colombard and folle blanche, spread over two of the six cognac crus, mainly the Petite Champagne. The Petite Champagne brings roundness and the scent of violets ; Grande Champagne offers complexity and the sand of the Fin Bois allows for freshness and aromas. The Lhéraud cognacs are made of this diversity.
