Courvoisier VS Cognac: A Vibrant Introduction to the Spirit

Courvoisier VS Cognac is the gateway to the prestigious world of Courvoisier, a brand synonymous with exceptional quality and rich heritage. This meticulously crafted blend offers a lively and joyous expression, perfect for Cognac connoisseurs and curious newcomers alike.

A Legacy of Excellence

Courvoisier, founded in 1835 near Paris, boasts a celebrated history. Renowned for its signature "Cognac in Blossom" style, the house prioritises vibrancy and finesse. Courvoisier VS embodies this philosophy, showcasing a youthful spirit balanced by subtle hints of maturity.

Unveiling the Aroma

Pour yourself a generous measure of Courvoisier VS and take a moment to appreciate the captivating aroma. The initial burst is a delightful mix of fresh spring blossoms, evoking images of meadows bathed in morning sunshine. Hints of ripe orchard fruits like pear and apple intermingle with the floral notes, adding a touch of sweetness. A surprising yet intriguing element is a subtle tang of grapefruit, lending a refreshing citrusy edge. As you delve deeper, a whisper of oak emerges, a testament to the cognac's time spent maturing in oak casks.

A Symphony of Flavours on the Palate

The first sip of Courvoisier VS is a revelation. The youthful vibrancy translates beautifully on the tongue, with those delicate floral and fruity notes coming to the forefront. The pear and apple impressions intensify, offering a juicy sweetness that is beautifully balanced by the grapefruit's citrus zest. The oak influence becomes more pronounced on the palate, adding a touch of spice and a pleasant dryness that lingers. The overall impression is one of remarkable harmony, with each element playing its part to create a truly delightful experience.

A Smooth and Satisfying Finish

As the cognac gracefully departs from your palate, the experience lingers with a smooth and satisfying finish. The floral and fruity notes remain, leaving a pleasant sensation. The oaky influence becomes more prominent, offering a hint of vanilla and a touch of warmth. The finish is clean and refreshing, inviting you to take another sip and explore the complexities further.

Serving Suggestions to Savour the Experience

Courvoisier VS is a versatile spirit, enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or as part of a well-crafted cocktail. Here are a few suggestions to elevate your Courvoisier VS experience:

  • Neat: This is the purist's approach, allowing the cognac's full character to shine through. Sip it slowly in a snifter glass, savouring the aroma and flavour profile.
  • On the Rocks: For a more refreshing experience, serve Courvoisier VS over a single large ice cube. The ice will gently chill the cognac, slightly numbing the tongue and emphasising the fruity notes.
  • The Courvoisier Sour: This classic cocktail is a delightful balance of sweet and tart flavours that perfectly complements Courvoisier VS. Combine 50ml Courvoisier VS, 25ml fresh lemon juice, 12.5ml sugar syrup, and 1 egg white (optional) in a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
  • French 75: This elegant and effervescent cocktail is another fantastic way to enjoy Courvoisier VS. Combine 35ml Courvoisier VS, 20ml fresh lemon juice, 10ml sugar syrup, and a splash of champagne in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled champagne flute. Top with champagne and garnish with a lemon twist.
