This is a cognac made using grapes grown on the Île de Ré, a tiny island in the Atlantic ocean, off the the coast of Cognac and lying in the Bois à Terroirs/Bois Ordinaires cru. This release enjoys a second maturation in the Fort de La Prée, an imposing star-shaped fort, situated very close to the shoreline – hence the Cognac’s name. This gives the cognac a distinct maritime quality, which pairs excellently well with the sweetness of the grape and the darker, woody notes of the French oak cask
Camus’ Ile De Ré Fine Island Cognac is distilled and matured on the eponymous island; the proximity to the ocean imparts a maritime, subtly salty character quite different to most Cognacs. This is a fine match for fish dishes.
Hennessy reimagined the classic cognac blend 200 years ago with V.S.O.P. And its special collector’s edition bottle, encased in a sleek metal gift box with leather handle, celebrates this milestone.The ideal expression of a perfectly balanced cognac, Hennessy V.S.O.P originated from an order placed in 1817 by the future King George IV of the United Kingdom for a “Very Superior Old Pale” cognac.
