This 45-year-old cognac surprises you with its abundant tropical fruit notes, harmoniously blending juicy pineapple, ripe mango and soft peach. With a deep, amber glow, this spirit exudes a mature elegance that reflects years of careful aging. On the palate, a powerful and perfectly aged cognac with impressive complexity. A harmonious explosion of tropical fruits. Pineapple and mango dance fervently on the tongue, with hints of exotic guava and lychee playing a seductive game of flavors. Black tea, a humid cigar box, a slight saltiness and cedar provide the balance. This makes us oh so happy! The finish is long and impressive, with notes of old oak and leather mingling with the sweet memory of tropical opulence.

about the producer:
François Voyer’s 28 hectares of vineyards are located in the Grande Champagne region, the Premier Cru of Cognac, known for producing eaux-de-vie with aromatic power and qualities suitable for long-term aging. François Voyer Cognac is a family-run Cognac house that is passionate about every detail of its production.The cognac house François Voyer transferred to its cellar master and oenologist Pierre Vaudon in 2017 to perpetuate its identity.
Their cognacs develop the typical aromas as they age. The notes of pear, banana or even blackberry in the white eaux de vie are quickly complemented after distillation by the first aromas of oak from the barrels. This combination reveals floral aromas in the young cognacs, which then develop into fruity aromas (peaches, plums, apricots, walnuts and hazelnuts). The aging process leads to spicy (cinnamon, pepper) and complex notes (leather, incense, cedar).The vineyards are in Verrières and Ambleville, and cognac has been produced there since 1870. There is mainly Ugni blanc planted. But recently Folle Blanche was also reintroduced, for the first results we have to be patient.
10% to 20% of each harvest matures for 3 years in new barrels and then in old barrels to refine the aromas. For this, they use French oak from the Limousin region, but also from forests such as Bercée, Le Gâvre or Reno Valdieu. The natural atmosphere in the cellars is more or less humid and influences the finesse or suppleness of the bouquet. Moisture softens eaux de vie, while dry cellars refine them.Every year, 10,000 bottles evaporate from François Voyer’s cellars. In 1 hour, 1 liter of brandy evaporates from the stock. Through natural evaporation, these cognacs reach 40% full in 50 to 60 years. Distilled water is regularly added to the youngest blends. As a result, young, reduced cognacs will be less dense in flavor than old cognacs concentrated by natural evaporation.
The range is classic, with a range of younger expressions, as well as exceptionally old assemblages and vintage bottles. The House of Voyer cherishes traditional knowledge and has an enormous focus on perfectionism. This combined with hard work and you have an excellent match. Definitely one of our favorite cognac houses as they brilliantly manage to set the bar very high throughout the entire range and bottle absolute uncompromising and very recognizable quality.

Ruben Luyten, www.whiskynotes.be, 23/10/2023:
Nose: excellent brightness. Passion fruit, mango, juicy tangerine and hints of nectarine. Very tropical. Then minty freshness, fine leathery notes and subtle varnish. Light tobacco again, mixed with floral tones (rosewater). Perfect drops of camphor.
Mouth: nicely oily, and much more exuberant than the Lot 28 (not entirely surprising). Tropical fruits explode on the palate. Pink grapefruits, tangerines, bergamots, passion fruits and pineapples. Some sour wood appears in a later stage, but stays well within margins. Then aniseed and light pepper too.
Finish: long, very fruity, with added hints of leather, herbs and rancio.
So yes, an older spirit is not necessarily our favourite. The vibrance and sparkle of this Lot 77 is truly outstanding and it has exactly the tropical character that keeps impressing us. Overall it may not have the same complexity as the Lot 28, but boy, is this delicious!
Score: 91/100

Koorddanser

Ik beken, sinds we er vorige zomer zo hartelijk werden onthaald (en aangezien Dearly Beloved en ik toen de enige bezoekers waren, kregen we dus een privé-rondleiding), heb ik wel een soft spot voor deze artisanale cognacproducent ontwikkeld. Het is dan ook fijn om te zien dat de voorlaatste release van 2023 van Malternative Belgium van dit huis afkomstig is. ‘Monsieur doute’ is te slapen gelegd in de kelder (die we dus gezien hebben) in 1977 en werd gebotteld op 17 maart van dit jaar (het vat lag er dus al niet meer, toen wij er waren).

Oh, ja, da’s precies wat ik me van Voyer herinner. Een verleidelijke neus die relatief floraal is, maar tevens een fruitmand van mandarijntjes en lychees, maar ook wat banaan, ananas en abrikozen. Een druppeltje rozenwater en een blaadje munt en het plaatje is compleet. Uitstekend!

Goeie body. Lekker olieachtig en fluweelzacht, doch met een mooie kruidige prikkel. Denk nootmuskaat en een hint van paprika. De mandarijntjes zitten vooraan, maar worden snel bijgetreden door een hint van passievrucht en mango. Met een beetje verbeelding wordt hij zelfs wat snoeperig. Het hout is net onder controle. Koorddanser. In die optiek is de naam wel goed gekozen. Ik vraag me af of het Pieter is, die ze bedenkt. Ik vermoed van wel.

Ja, dat is wel een erg goeie afdronk. De kruidigheid houdt ‘m pittig, terwijl het fruit langzaam wegdeemstert. En dat duurt lekker lang.

Tja, 1977 is een goed jaar hé (voor zij die me wat minder goed kennen: toen verscheen de eerste Star Wars film in de bioscoopzalen). Vanaf vandaag verkrijgbaar via Malternative Belgium aan 429 EUR.

88/100
