Père Dom brandy has been distilled
in Coey stills from grape wines and
aged in our cellars in French oak 400
liter casks for a minimum of one year.
Thereafter, it is blended with our
older brandies. Typical grape
varieties can be Colombard, Merlot,
Muscat or Airen.
Considering the shorter period of
aging for brandy than the typical
aging period for cognac, we age our
brandy in rather dry cellars with
exposure to temperature movements.
The casks we use for aging our
brandy are the same as the casks we
use to age our V.S. cognac; large grain
French oak with high temperature
toasting (up to 200 C, equivalent of
392 degrees Fahrenheit), with a small
percentage of new casks being used.
Color Nice amber, dark copper
glints, limpid and shiny.
Nose Fruits forward notes of pear,
raisins and dry pineapple, followed
by a very delicate toasted vanilla
flavor and a gentle finish of raisin
Palate Light, soft palate, with a
delicate mix of Muscat grapes, winy
notes and toasted oak. Nice, soft
finish, mixing typical French oak
notes with a hint of exotic fruits.
Spirit Type: Brandy
