The Connoisseur Collection
A clear revolution in cognac – our Courvoisier Connoisseur Collection is made up of the first ever cognacs from either of the four major houses to be defined by age, instead of traditional cognac categories like VS, VSOP or XO.
This approach makes cognac more accessible and understandable for the novice and creates two incredible blends for the connoisseur. The Collection consists of two limited editions, Courvoisier 12 Year Old and Courvoisier 21 Year Old.
Retailing at $49.99, Courvoisier 12 is a blend primarily selected from the Borderies cru. At 12 years of age, this has developed the optimum floral and spicy notes, with key aromas of violets, orange blossoms that quickly meld into spicy tones clove, ginger and star anise.
Courvoisier 21 is the perfect blend for those celebrating the very best moments in life. Taken from the Grande Champagne cru and aged in our warehouses for over two decades in hand selected fine grain oak barrels, 21 years is the optimum time for the cognacs to develop a full richness of aromas – dried hazelnuts, dried apricots and figs followed slowly by notes of cocoa, honey and smooth spices, like white pepper and coriander. Retailing for $250, Courvoisier 21 bears testament to our centuries of innovation and high standards.
