Jean-Luc Pasquet L'Organic Folle Blanche L.XI
Free shipping from 1000€ Tax excl (US and Europe)
This vineyard located in Eraville a short distance from Segonzac, the capital of the Grande Champagne, traces its origins back to 1730. The property was passed down from generation to generation until Jean Luc Pasquet inherited the property in 1970. It is only in 1977 that Jean Luc Pasquet will start bottling his production.
The vineyard is maintained in organic agriculture and planted with Uni-Blanc grape variety, one of the three grape varieties of the Region of Cognac. This vineyard also has a few vines of Folle Blanche, the King grape variety of the Region of Cognac before the phylloxera crisis at the end of the 19th century. This very fragile grape variety gave rise at the time, however, to eaux de vie of incomparable finesse and richness, both olfactory and gustatory.
The House raises several qualities of Cognacs of different ages under labels specific to each quality.
Description Jean-Luc Pasquet L'Organic Folle Blanche L.XI.
This is a Cognac exclusively of 100% folle blanche grape variety, from Grande Champagne, classified Premier Cru de Cognac, placed right at the top of the qualitative hierarchy of the 6 terroirs of Cognac.
The folle blanche grape variety currently represents less than 1% of the vineyard of the "Cognac" appellation whereas it was in the past, the most used grape variety, but has been replaced due to Phylloxera: an aphid imported from the United States that has destroyed in a few years a very large part of the French vineyard.
The youngest brandies are at least 10 years old and have benefited from a long aging in the cellar of the house Jean-Luc Pasquet, ideal conditions to age the brandies in oak barrels and red barrels and thus reach an exceptional maturity and quality.
La robe is amber.
The nose highlights winter woody aromas such as sandalwood, oak wood or orange zest accompanied by spicy autumnal notes such as apricot Secs, dried fig or muscat grape.
The palate is silky, very nice sensations of truffle, nutmeg and soft leather aromas, to finish with a nice length of undergrowth.
Bottles will be kept upright, stored in a cellar away from light and noise with an optimal hygrometric degree of about 70%.
Serve in a "tulip" glass, a traditional glass for drinking its Cognac.
Wine and food pairings: enjoy after dinner, neat or as a long drink with a citrus Schweppes.
