Personality a high proportion of fine wine lees retained for distillation makes le sauvage a powerful cognac with good structure. 40. 8% abv typicity a single growth: petite champagne. Chalky soils give le sauvage structure and balance. A single grape: ugni blanc the cognac region’s emblematic variety. A single distillation method: fine wine lees: reinforced. – an original distillation method involving a high proportion of the wine’s fine lees (between 7 and 15%) to add power and structure. Alcohol by volume : 40. 8% tasting notes this cognac is the result of blending fine eaux-de-vie from the petite champagne growth. It has an attractive golden shade. The nose is at first powerful a consequence of the spirit being distilled with its lees and well structured. The attack is brisk and direct on the palate and the body displays complexity with fruit notes of candied apricot. The cognac comes from eaux-de-vie with intense aromas; the long lightly-spiced finish has vanilla cinnamon and clove notes. This distinctive structured and powerful cognac owes its character to the high proportion of fine wine lees included during distillation. Pairing prickly pear roasted in honey lemon and thyme. We opted for sweetness to go with such a powerful energetic spirit. Prickly pears roasted in herbs and lemon become juicy and naturally caramelised. They have both the sweetness and the robustness to withstand le sauvage.
