Vesper, from the sixth canonical hour celebrated each late-afternoon in song to reflect its richness and the worshipful sense it imparts.
This Grande Champagne, older than the Pale & Dry X.O, has been crafted in a different, more classic style, with a more pronounced amber colour, with bright flashes of pure gold.
The initial oaky bouquet gives way to aromas of mushrooms, dry vine shoots and vanilla. On the palate, the extraordinary full-bodied roundness is matched by the remarkable length.
This is a very full, very mature, notably refined cognac.
Each cognac is aged separately, for longer than the Pale and Dry, owing to their origin and then the blend itself, made at the end of the ageing period, is aged for 2 years or more (marriage).
