Augier Le Singulier Cognac
This cognac is the product of fine eaux-de-vie from the Fine Champagne growth and the highly distinctive Folle Blanche grape. The blend has an attractive copper-yellow shade. The nose is, at first, subtle and precise. On swirling, fruit notes of pear, bush peach and apricot become apparent. After a brisk, direct attack typical of a spirit free from additives, the body is rounded and subtle on the palate. Intense fruit flavours are balanced by the understated wood aromas in the finish. This is a characterful cognac made from the forgotten Folle Blanche grape, which accounts for less than 1% of the appellation's current plantings. Typicity: A single growth - Fine Champagne. Well-known in the Cognac region, producing rich, complex eaux-de-vie. - A single grape - Folle Blanche, a rare, traditional variety with remarkable aromatic intensity. - A single distillation method - Wine fine lees: natural. A balance of aromatic expressiveness and finesse. Pairing: Toasted artisanal bread with smoked, salted butter, carpaccio of raw boletus mushrooms, walnut oil and cocoa nib.
