Product Description

Kelt VSOP Grand Champagne Cognac

Matured on the ocean, Kelt VSOP Cognac truly has a fascinating life of its own before it makes its way to your glass. Aged in Limousin oak barrels, Kelt Cognac undertakes a 3-month sea voyage (Tour du Monde) around the world. The combination of movement, temperature variations, air-pressure changes and the magic of the seas produce a truly unique combination of flavors and aromas as well as producing the legendary smoothness that Kelt is known for.

During the Tour du Monde each molecule of the cognac is in contact with wood repeatedly as the cognac is washed around in the barrels. This produces a remarkable ageing effect in just three months. Aging is a chemical reaction. Chemical reactions are speeded up by adding heat. During the Tour du Monde the temperature goes very high, especially when passing through warmer climates which is for most of the voyage. At sea the air pressure changes constantly. This makes the Limousin oak contract and expand adding new oxygen and persuading the Limousin oak to part with its most delicate qualities.

Kelt is 100% Grande Champagne, a classification at the heart of the cognac region. Cognac, like other wine-producing regions in France is divided into sub-areas which has the most favorable soil and geographical conditions. In Cognac, the Premier Cru area is Grande Champagne. With extremely chalky soil, the Grande Champagne area is considered the present some of the very best conditions of the region.
