Courvoisier Cognac V.S. is a cognac produced by the Courvoisier maison, one of the most historic maisons, founded around 1809 by Emmanuel Courvoisier. This maison in particular was visited in 1811 by Napoleon, who wanted his soldiers to have a dose of cognac with them in battle and gave it to some English officers during their visit to St. Helena; from here on, the name of this maison was increasingly linked to that of Napoleon.
Courvoisier Cognac V.S. it is produced with grapes from the sub-areas of Petite and Fins Bois, less suitable for the production of great cognacs for aging but very aromatic and perfumed.

Clear light amber colour. Notes of ripe berries and dried flowers on the nose. Enveloping in the mouth but with a note of freshness.
Perfect as a meditation wine or after-dinner/digestive. It can sometimes be used in mixology for the preparation of cocktails.
