Proof66 Notes

Courvoisier VSOP (very superior old pale) cognac is blended from eau de vie aged "up to" 10 years. They say it has a minimum of 50% Grande Champagne Ugni Blanc grapes (the remaining are all Petite Champagne grapes) in the blend, leading to the label of "fine Champagne."

Courvoisier cognacs claim a heritage back to the early 19th century and a legendary visit from Napoleon Bonoparte, which leads them to place his silhouette on every bottle and claim to be the "cognac of Napoleon." It is made in France from the Ugni Blanc grape, then aged and blended at the historic Courvoisier headquarters.

It's ok. I agree with Proof66's scoring in that it's not as good as the VS. And if you factor in the difference in price the VS is a much better value.
