This cognac house has always relied on natural processes. From growing the grapes to picking, maturing, distilling, ageing and bottling them, Gourmel cognac is free of any chemicals, pesticides or additives to enhance colour in respect of nature and the final product. The philosophy of the company is to concentrate on quality not quantity, which means that one year the outcome may be higher than in others. This is further shown by the radical decision to produce only pure vintage cognacs, so there is no blending of different years in order to create VS, VSOP or XO cognacs for instance. To go with this authentic approach, the design of Gourmel is simple and modern.

REVIEWS & AWARDS
“Leopold Gourmel makes arguably the most breath-taking brandies in Cognac… The open-minded Cognac aficionado will be richly rewarded by a freshness in the Leopold Gourmel Cognacs, which display aromas of vanilla, honey, almonds an grapefruit reminiscent of an exotic Chardonnay… Wine enthusiasts who may know all about the Bordeaux 1855 classification but feel lost with the terminology used in Cognac will be right at home with the names chosen by the proprietor for his Cognacs.” Per-Henrik Mansson
