Courvoisier VS is crafted primarily from eaux-de-vie from the Fins Bois growing cru with a smaller balance of eaux-de-vie from the Petite Champagne appellation. It is aged between three and seven years in French Oak from the Limousin forests in the vicinity of Cognac, France. The mixture of younger and older eaux-de-vie is apparent as it has a complexity that most VS offerings do not. Couvoisier VS has a flowery nose with full fruit flavors accented with light fresh oak tones.

Overall: Courvoisier VS is a blend of eaux-de-vie more mature than contained in most VS offerings. As such, it is suitable for sipping and mixing. While it doesn’t have the character or structure of Courvoisier VSOP, you can sense it was on its way when bottled. Courvoisier is almost a hybrid VS/VSOP and makes for a perfect introduction to cognac as it hints at more mature cognacs while retaining some of the youthful freshness of VS cognacs. Courvoisier VS is a well-balanced everyday cognac that sips and mixes well.The lack of citrus notes of Courvoisier VS make it a lesser candidate for such cocktails as the Sidecar. Its fruity notes, however, make it an easy and perfect mix for many popular cognac punches and cocktails such as those with ginger ale like the Midnight in Paris.
