Park VSOP Cognac 750ml (Elsewhere $50)

SKU #1052215

Following a decade working in the London wine trade for Corney & Barrow, Berry Bros. & Rudd, and then his own business, Dominic Park decided in the early 1990s to move to France and create a new Cognac house. Maison Cognac Park was born to make straightforward, unadulterated Cognacs presented in simple packaging. In essence, the idea was to offer an alternative to the stereotype of over-caramelized brown Cognacs sold in flamboyant crystal decanters or frosted glass bottles. It was a fortunate period to enter the Cognac market when prices of eaux-de-vie were at their lowest. Dominic started by acquiring a bedrock of unblended spirits aged between two and 60 years in Tronšais oak casks. He housed these eaux-de-vie in cellars on the banks of the River Charente, on the outskirts of the town of Cognac, where the 80% relative humidity is ideal for storage. The V.S.O.P has rich and nutty flavors that stay in the mouth, with a certain amount of wood. Round and easy to drink. The secret behind this blend is the large number and the regional variety of eaux-de-vie in the blend, including the nuttiness of good Borderies. Average age 10-20 years.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
