  • Courvoisier V.S. (Very Special) Cognac is a blend of several crus aged between three and seven years (four to eight for Russia), composed principally of Fins Bois with a balancing hand of Petite Champagne.
  • The fusion of younger and older cognacs gives Courvoisier V.S. a fruity, delicate taste and a bouquet filled with ripe fruit and spring flowers.
  • The chalky soil in Fins Bois delivers a hint of ripened fruits that is its signature aroma. Inhale deeply for the bouquet of spring flowers, which is a hallmark of grapes harvested at their peak from the Fins Bois crus. The rich, fresh oak bouquet is controlled throughout the ageing process to make sure it doesn't dominate the young cognac.
  • In the early 1800's, Louis Gallois and Emmanuel Courvoisier founded their cognac business in Paris. Courvoisier became Emperor Napoleon III's official cognac. Legend has it that he chose several casks of cognac as his one granted item of luxury when he was exiled to the remote island of St Helena. Courvoisier is the only cognac that has been awarded with the highest quality award - Prestige de la France.
  • In 1828 they relocated to Jarnac in the cognac region to oversee the quality of their production, and this is where Courvoisier cognac is produced to this day.
  • Taste the Golden age of Paris with Courvoisier, Le Cognac de Napoleon
