Famous for its bee emblem, Cognac Louis Royer traces its history back to the year 1853 and is known for a wide range of quality Cognacs and Pineau. Creating cognacs from all six terroirs of the Cognac growing region, the offices and cellars of Louis Royer remain in the town of Jarnac on the banks of the Charente River where they were set up over 150 years ago. Very much continuing with the traditional methods championed by the cognac house’s name sake, Louis Royer boasts five generations of family experience and skill that continue to produce a full range of cognacs. Cellar Master Laurent Robin has the admirable option of dipping into Cognacs from Royer distilleries in each of the five major production zones. It is not surprising that these blends show both character and individuality.
The Louis Royer VS is amber-colored. Bouquet is pronounced, dominated by oak, citrus and hazelnut, with white floral elements in the background. The attack is smooth, showing red plums, dried apricot, honey and a slight caramel/vanilla mix that persists on the palate on the finish. The mid-length finish is quite clean.
