A great Cognac made for the fine mouths and the hedonists.

This Cognac is dedicated to dessert lovers, in search of the perfect spirits for this moments of pleasure and sharing.
A real delight.
Fresh on the nose, supple and plump in the mouth - here we are dealing with a very elegant eau-de-vie, with an amber color and golden reflections.
The nose is candied and floral, with hints of spring flowers, jasmine and dried rose petals. Likewise on the palate: we can see at first notes of rose petals. Then more candied flavors : mandarin, quince, dried apricot. And finally, powerful and persistent cocoa notes.
The final is not far behind : very long, staying on the chocolate, while letting appear pleasant spicy touches.
The accompanying recommendations of the Jean Fillioux House :
"This Star Gourmet is ideal to be served alongside many desserts! It will be sublime to accompany a tasting of chocolates, truffles, praline or ganache. Or a cake with almonds, orange, chocolate - or a brownies, cookies, or almond-based Italian biscuits. " Ice creams are not forgotten either! A vanilla or cinnamon sorbet and a glass of Jean Fillioux Star Gourmet Cognac will delight your taste buds!
