Augier Cognac Le Sauvage

:: France

https://www.cognac-augier.com/en/

Estate::

Established in 1643 by a wine merchant, Augier is the oldest of the cognac houses.
Its history is one of constant experimentation at a time when the region was discovering the potential of its cognac eaux-de-vie, from unearthing grape varieties and local terroirs to learning about new distillation methods. By limiting production, the company guaranteed outstanding quality and
traceability,evidenced by blending records that date back over a hundred years.  The company’s integrity and values, acknowledged throughout the region, earned it a reputation as cognac’s “White House” or a byword for probity. Keen to safeguard this heritage, we have rededicated Augier to its original calling: to strive for typicality, cultivate neglected terroirs and grapes, and create cognacs of singular character.

Grape varieties::

Le Sauvage is made with Ugni Blanc grapes from Petite Champagne.

Vinification::

A bold cognac with an appealing intensity achieved by distilling the wine on its fine lees. We do not chill-filter our eaux-de-vie and prohibit any additives so that we can preserve the character and authenticity of our distillates. The complete traceability of the eaux-de-vie that make up our cognacs allows us to ensure the genuineness of their character.
Each of our cognacs bears the stamp of a single growth, whether from prestigious or long-forgotten terroirs. We seek to reflect the wealth and diversity of the Cognac region.

appearance::

Rich, golden yellow.

nose::

Intense aromas of vanilla, cinnamon and clove.

taste::

The body displays complexity with fruit notes of candied apricot.

Food pairing::

Prickly pear roasted in honey, lemon and thyme. We opted for sweetness to go with such a powerful, energetic spirit. Prickly pears roasted in herbs and lemon become juicy and naturally caramelised. They have both the sweetness and the robustness to withstand Le Sauvage.

Closure::
