Monnet Sunshine Selection Cognac
THE SUNNY STYLE OF COGNAC
There is a Monnet style: “sunny” Cognacs, warm with strong floral and fruity hints. Monnet Cognac is first enjoyed through one’s eyes. This specific style was captured by famous illustrator Leonetto Cappiello in his renowned “Sunshine in a glass” poster, completed for Monnet in the 1920s. This poster gave the brand an aura that it still carries nowadays.
The House of Monnet was founded in 1838. Jean-Gabriel Monnet, who gave the house his name in 1897 and chose as its emblem the salamander. Jean Monnet succeeded his father before embarking on an illustrious political career, as chief architect of the European Union. As the House progresses toward its 200th anniversary, it is more committed than ever to the founding principles of quality, generosity and authenticity.
Sunshine Selection’s roundness and outstanding fruitiness are remarkable, creating a product which is both very elegant and very accessible.
Nose is full of aromas of quince jam accents and spring flowers (lilac and daffodils). Very smooth, unctuous start, hearty notes of sun-filled summer fruits (apricot, peach..) with a light touch of vanilla and gingerbread. Long finish of smooth warm lingering accents of dried fruits and pastry.
