Description

The Fine Champagne Cognac appellation means that the blend comes from the two best areas of the Cognac region, the Grande and the Petite Champagne, with at least 50% of the grapes coming from the Grande Champagne. Since strong tobacco aromas can overload a fine cognac, this distillate ensures that the aroma and taste are fuller and richer. It starts with a combination of light and musky scents of honey, saffron and gingerbread mixed with fresh cranberries and vanilla. On the palate, these aromas combine to create a full-bodied cognac with a harmonious finish, subtle surprises and a long aftertaste. The Cigar Blend is the perfect companion with a good cigar.

Producer

Park

For many years Baur au Lac Wines has been Switzerland's exclusive importer of the sumptuous Cognacs created by Dominic Park. The story goes back to the 1990s when Dominic Park decided to leave his job as a wine trader in London to create his own cognac house with the style he wanted. This is summed up by a very clean vision of what cognac should be: insist on the best origins and a very precise distillation and ageing to give a high-class product in a modern, elegant bottle.

The colour of Park cognacs is natural and results from a patient ageing of the eaux-de-vie. No caramel colouring is permitted and no rectification with concentrated tannins. All cognacs undergo a longer ageing than that imposed by law. Even the VS, the simplest cognac, matures for three and half years instead of the required two. The VSOP is aged for eight years instead of four, twice the minimum. As for the XO, Park lets it acquire its fullness over twenty years where nine suffice under the rules. Finally, the eaux-de-vie that go into the Extra, the Vieille Fine Champagne, in the top Cigar Blend, and into the Vieille Grande Champagne aged for forty to sixty years.

Cognac: Hochprozentig edel

Das idyllisch am Fluss Charente gelegene Cognac ist eine französische Kleinstadt wie aus dem Bilderbuch. Es liegt im Herzen einer Weinbauregion, deren Rebfläche von fast 80.000 Hektar fast ausschliesslich der Weinbrand-Herstellung dient. In den ausgedehnten Kellern der prestigeträchtigen Cognac-Häusern reifen diese Destillate jahrelang ihrer Genussreife entgegen. Die exklusivsten Cognacs schlummern oft fünfzig oder mehr Jahre in Eichenfässern, bis sie in edlen Karaffen zum Verkauf angeboten werden.

France – Philosophy in a bottle

According to French philosophy, wine should be an expression of the soil and climate. They use the word “terroir” to describe this. Terroir makes every wine different, and many especially good. French wine is regarded worldwide as an expression of cultural perfection. The French believe that humans are responsible for the quality of the berries, the vine variety for their character, and nature for the quantity. This philosophy can be expressed succinctly as: “the truth is the vineyard, not the man.”
