Product Description

Exquisite fullness: Renowned for its fine balance, Cointreau is at once intense and gentle, warming and refreshing, bitter and sweet, delivering a beguiling twist of "je ne sais quoi" that never leaves one indifferent. Remember, taste, like beauty, is often born from contrast. Surrender to its charms... Enveloping fragrance: The exotic sensuality of white flowers, fruits and spices married with pure essential oils from sweet and bitter oranges arouse curiosity and heighten the imagination. It is like a mix of natures rich ripe fruitfulness and warm sparkling sunshine. Fine clarity: On first appearance the spirit is without artifice, flowing naked and crystalline from its amber bottle. This purity clouds on contact with ice, which confers a gossamer pearl-white aspect to its translucent robe

Region: France

Region Description:

France is the standard bearer for all the world’s wines, with regard to the types of grapes that are used to make wine and with the system of defining and regulating winemaking. Its Appellation d’Origine Controlee, or AOC system, is the legislative model for most other European countries. Most French wines are named after places. The system is hierarchical; generally the smaller and more specific the region for which a wine is named, the higher its rank. There are four possible ranks of French wine, and each is always stated on the label: Appellation Contrôlée (or AOC), Vin Délimité de Qualité Supérieure (or VDQS); Vin de pays, or country wine; and Vin de table. France has five major wine regions, although there are several others that make interesting wines. The three major regions for red wine are Bordeaux, Burgundy, and the Rhone; for white wines, the regions are Burgundy, the Loire and Alsace. Each region specialized in certain grape varieties for its wines, based on climate, soil, and local tradition. Two other significant French wine regions are Provence and Languedoc-Roussillon, both in the south of France. Cahors, in the southwest of the country, produces increasingly good wines.
