Landy VSOP Cognac 70cl
When the cellar master feels that the Landy spirits, after several years of aging, are nearing optimum maturity, he begins the subtle process of blending. By tasting spirits of different ages and origins, he determines those which will combine harmoniously to create a distinctive cognac, perfectly blended in the style that is uniquely Landy.
Ferrand Cognac Made by Landy is a blend of cognacs from the most exotic and exotic and prestigious origins: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Fins Bois. Each year, the best grapes from three vineyards are vinified thesis then distilled separately. The goal at Cognac Ferrand is to create a complex, well-balanced and refined cognac aging in the classic statements of XO, VSOP and VS.
Cognac is distilled in copper pot stills 25 hectoliter. The small capacity helps to concentrate the aromas and flavours of the wine.
First, the young Landy Cognac is kept in the cool of the cellars Limousin oak casks in new contents, each holding 380 litres of spirit. Their wealth of tannins give it an ideal structure for aging. After about a year, the spirit is transferred to older casks - the “red casks” - whose softer tannins will enable the cognac to mature in perfect conditions while avoiding the development of excessive oak flavours.
The Landy shows a fiery amber colour in the glass. It is a mellow cognac, long and pleasantly lingering on the palate. Smooth vanilla and ripe fruit flavours rounded by oakier notes.
