Leyrat Assemblage No.1 VS Cognac
Leyrat Assemblage No.1 VS Cognac is the first cognac blended by the Maison Leyrat in order to give it its identity. It is a young and fruity eau-de-vie, with a far more pronounced oak influence than what you would find in traditional VS.
Handcrafted, aged in oak barrels for at least twelve months and blended from local grapes from the Cognac region of France. Leyrat Assemblage No.1 VS Cognac boasts vibrant aromas of black cherries and violets, followed by a long, delicate finish that lingers on the palate.
A versatile and balanced cognac, Leyrat Assemblage No.1 provides an enjoyable drinking experience with its rich flavors of dried fruits and cocoa. This VS Cognac is aged for a minimum of two years in oak barrels before it is bottled, resulting in a smooth tasting liquid that goes great with fine cigars or other drinks.
Leyrat is a small family company in Cognac that has spent time refining the art of blending, marrying and ageing fine spirits. The result is an exceptional range of cognacs and armagnacs, many of which are blended from vintage and reserve casks of older stocks.
Leyrat Assemblage No.1 VS Cognac has a light aroma with floral and honey overtones, showing a rich palate with luscious fruit in the form of plums and black cherries, balanced by spice. Its finish is long, elegant and smooth with hints of oak.
Leyrat Assemblage No.1 VS Cognac is the result of blending cognac distilled from grapes grown in several different parts of France. One of the grapes used comes from Grande Champagne, while another is from Petite Champagne. This particular cognac is aged for up to 10 years before being bottled.
It has a powerful character, one that is immediately apparent as soon as you pour it into your glass. The nose possesses floral notes, tobacco smoke and dried fruits with a hint of oak. The palate brings together soft tannins with intense fruit flavors and hints of tobacco and cocoa. It finishes long with spice and wood lingering on the palate for what seems like an eternity.
A full-flavoured blend of Armagnac and Fine Champagne that showcases the richness and elegance of LÉYRAT VS COGNAC. Its distinctive personality comes from its remarkable balance between intensity and delicacy, made possible by the perfect harmony between both elements: the finesse of cognac and the concentrated fruitiness of Leyrat’s 48% full bodied vins de fruit.
