Vallein Tercinier

St. Michel Cognac & Caramel Cream Liqueur

Region: Cognac

Vallein Tercinier

For the family that has produced Cognacs in Chermignac for five generations, there is one guiding principle: follow the family tradition of care and obsession with flavor that goes into each bottle, not the fashion of the moment. That focus on creating the most pleasurable experience in the glass, following the same recipes that have been handed down through the generations, drives all the distilling, blending and aging decisions for Vallein Tercinier at Domaine des Forges.

The Wine

Harvest Notes

St Michel, soft greedy marriage of milk of our pastures and caramel fleur de sel, subtly enchanted with the bouquet of a fine cognac selected by our cellar master. To serve ideally on ice cubes, in cocktails and for a decadent dessert on a vanilla ice cream, a tiramisu….

Winemaker's Notes

Magnificent color of caramel. In the nose, the frank notes of caramel give way to the fine, rich and pure aromas, which are subtly accompanied by a fruity nose of cognac. Extraordinary creamy flow in mouth where the delicacy of the Cognacgets marry unctuously with caramel, forming a decadent, full and harmonious flavor. Irresistible creamy length of pure caramel.
