The Michel Couvreur's superiority first and foremost comes from a process of maturing whiskies principally in Sherry and Port casks. But the singular identity of our whiskies also results from the effects of the Bouze-lès-Beaune cellars, located in Burgundy. One hundred and fifty meters of remarkable under grown galleries dug deep in the Burgundian rock—a place of dampness and silence. A selection of specific casks, and their careful to-and-fro between the dry and damp parts of the cellar imbue the Michel Couvreur whiskies with a very powerful intensity as well as a mellow roundness. Several years of ageing bestows them with a typical style and nobility.
Five Vin Jaune casks were procured from Stephane Tissot to produce this expression in early 2009. Bottled at cask strength, mellow and complex, the alcohol is a nice balance between wonderful savagnin flavours and expressive tinge of bitterness. - Cerbaco distribution
