    This newly introduced Grande Champagne Cognac—part of the launch of the Courvoisier Connoisseur Collection—is the first to declare an age statement on the bottle (as opposed to a vintage year). The youngest eau-de-vie in this blend comes from wines harvested in October 1988 and distilled from November of that year until March 1989. All the eaux-de-vie were aged in Limousin and Tronçais oak barrels from 1989 until this year, when they were bottled. Master blender Patrice Pinet feels that 21 years is the ideal length of time for the Grande Champagne cru to reach its peak. Apricot, fig, and honey abound in its heady bouquet, with orange and ginger lingering in the finish.
