Chalfonte VSOP Grande Fine Cognac is made from white grapes grown in the Grande Champagne cru. The Grande Champagne terroir is characterized by a maritime climate and chalky soils over limestone and sandstone. Chalfonte is distilled, aged and blended in limited quantity in the heart of the Cognac region.
It pours to a golden honey color. The aroma is apricot, vanilla, spice, fresh smashed grape, oak, and berry, with a floral backing. The sweet juicy grape entry is joined by berry flavor building to a tart peak. It fades with apricot, vanilla and cream and finishes warm, semidry, and peppery with leather, oak, licorice, and orange rind taste. Chalfonte VSOP Grande Fine Cognac is a flavorful VSOP cognac priced more like a VS cognac.
