Fine VS

Cognac Leyrat Fine VS

Cognac, France

Cognac Leyrat is a single estate producer from the Fins Bois sub-region of Cognac. Their VS is well presented with a beautiful pale golden color. At first the nose is characterised by aromas of plums and pears, evolving to distinct traces of oak with floral undertones and hints of citrus. The palate is very elegant for such a young cognac - crisp and fresh. Enjoy on the rocks, or as a delightfully special mixer in a longer drink.
