2018 Bourgoin 'Raisin, Double Zero'

Cognac Bourgoin is a family estate located in the village of Saint Saturnin, in Charente. The family-run company dates back to nearly 100 years, when in1933, Leon Marcel Bourgoin traveled to Cognac for a vintage and fell in love with his boss' daughter. He then decided to live in the region and planted vines of Ugni Blanc to make Cognac. Frederic represents the 3rd generation and decided to shake things up. After years of selling their Cognac to larger houses, it was time to create their own house style, one that focused on terroir and artisanal distillation. All grapes are grown organically, vinified with indigenous yeasts, distilled and bottled by hand, without blending or filtration. Less than 20,000 bottles produced every year, a lot of them finding their way to some of the finest restaurants in Paris and New York.

Why do we like it?

Another interesting thing is the fact that all their Cognac are produced from one grape only: Ugni Blanc, emphasising the expression of terroir through one grape rather than a blend. The Raisin Double Zero is focus on freshness and fruit quality, without the use of wood to age the eau-de-vie. After the grapes are pressed with whole bunch, comes the vinification without sulphite. The precious liquid is then distilled on the lees in the Charentais pot still. The reduction is made with local spring water, down to 38 % ABV. It's truly delicious, showing nectarine, peach, white flower and ripe lemon aromas, it's a great digestif that will surprise you by its purity and fruit expression!
