Léopold Gourmel

Cognac, cognac France

Léopold Gourmel was created in 1972 by Olivier Blanc and Pierre Voisin and was named after Pierre's grandfather, a renowned viticulteur and horse saddler. Léopold Gourmel is still managed and part owned by Olivier Blanc. His approach, very much like that of Paolo De Marchi of Isole e Olena or Grégory Patriat of Jean-Claude Boisset, is to 'start with great quality grapes and transform them into a superb product in the bottle'.

Olivier sources his grapes from the 'Fins Bois' area of Cognac, which produces richer and more aromatic wine and therefore does not need to add sugar, oak flavouring or colour after the ageing process. The Léopold Gourmel Cognacs are made solely with the wines from single vintages and are classified by the type of aromas that are most prevalent as the vintage develops in cask, whether fruity, floral or spicy.

They are also classed according to the length of time that they age. Therefore, the 6, 10 and 15 Carats reflect the minimum of 6, 10 or 15 years that the Cognacs have aged in fine-grained oak barrels.
