Cognac Park Borderies Mizunara Oak Brandy
The Distillerie Tessendier estate was founded in 1880 by Gaston Tessendier. Today, it's still run as a family house, Maison Park, built on carrying that tradition forward through the generations. This VSOP Cognac is aged for four years in oak barrels, followed by six months in Mizunara, a particularly fine-grained type of Japanese oak. A 100% Borderies cognac, the most exclusive of the 6 growing areas of Cognac, offers eaux-de-vie that are round, floral and smooth, characterized by delicate hints of violet. The softly rounded taste and hints of floral are a prelude to a more powerful finish. The aging in Japanese oak casks bring a creaminess and depth, and layer in complex spicy notes.
