This top-quality delight is presented in a beautiful decanter, with classic lines and good looks, making it a wonderful Cognac to display on a cabinet. But don’t be fooled into thinking this bottle just looks pretty, because the precious nectar contained within is something rather special too.
Made solely from eaux-de-vie grown in the region of Petite Champagne, it represents all that is great about this cru. It’s a deliciously well-rounded Cognac, one that’s been created with passion and knowledge that’s been handed down over the generations of Normandin Mercier.
One of the most natural tan of the range, with an outstanding long finish and concentration. A cask strength Cognac that will seduce connoisseurs, non reduced. Intense empyreumatic notes with a blond coffee and cedarwood taste.
With a history spanning back over 100 years, the house of J Normandin-Mercier has always produced eaux-de-vie from only two of the cognac growing regions; Grande and Petite Champagne. Creating their wares with a 'quality over quantity’ philosophy, the family Normandin has passed their chateau and business down through the generations.
The site of Chateau de la Peraudiere was carefully considered back in the 19th century and was a strategic location aimed directly at the production of superior quality cognac and ease of distribution. Close to the town of La Rochelle, not only is it close to the sea, but also to the rail networks. The town was the major exportation centre of cognac at that time. In addition, the climate in this area lent itself extremely favourable to the distillation and aging process of the cognacs that filled the chateau’s cellars.
J Normandin Mercier Cognac today is still firmly a family-run affair. Using the knowledge and expertise passed down to them over the decades, Edouard, Jean-Marie and Audrey Normandin continue to produce cognacs in exactly the same methods as their ancestors. With this firmly in mind, the estate of Cognac J Normandin-Mercier remains to this day a chateau which welcomes visitors and provides them with personal experience of today’s cognac making industry.
