Jacoulot Les Grands Âges
20 Ans d’Âge Marc de Bourgogne
Marc de Bourgogne is distilled from the skins and pips referred to jointly as marc or pomace. Though other Marc de Bourgogne producers may include stems in their distillation, Jacoulot takes great care to use only de-stemmed fruit, giving the marc notes reminiscent of great Burgundy and taming the fiery and astringent nature of lesser brandies. Jacoulot distills its marc between November and March each year, using a mobile alembic still to match the natural rhythms of the harvest and the winemaking process. After distillation the spirit is transported to Jacoulot’s cellars and left to rest in French oak barrels. 228 liter barriques and 600-700 liter demi-muids are used for élevage, and 10,000 liter foudres are used for blending.
Burgundy’s cool climate makes for ideal cellar temperature and humidity. The properly cellared and aged spirits are cut with water at blending to produce an alcohol level of 43%. No other additives are used.
