Louis Royer Extra Grande Champagne

Louis-Royer-Extra-Grande-ChampagneOne of Louis XV’s best-known expressions, the Extra Grande Champagne is teeming with fragrant notes of orange blossom, cedar wood and rancio “nutty” notes. The expression is made entirely from eaux-de-vie taken made using grapes from the Grande Champagne region. Grande Champagne is widely considered to be the most respected crus in Cognac, and its terroir is characterized by a maritime climate and chalky soils over limestone and sand. In keeping with the Cognac appellation laws, the majority of Grande Champagne Cognac is made using Ugni Blanc grapes.

Price: approx £270

Producer: Louis Royer

    It’s always a pleasure to read your news. But this time we are very surprise by this one… Trust us you can find a lot a better value for money in a lot of small vineyards around Segonzac.

    We can suggest you : Francois Voyer, Paul Beau, Guillon Painturaud, Jacques Painturaud, Pierre de Segonzac.
    All this “bouilleurs de cru” produce cognacs since about 200 years.

    It will be a pleasure to works with you if you need. Best regards, Pablo ( Bordeaux, France)

    Could I also bring your attention to the multi-award winning Hermitage range? Each cognac has a vintage or age statement and comes from a single estate so you know exactly what is in the bottle. They are hand picked for their balance and flavour and provide excellent value for money.
