Rose Courvoisier Liqueur Review

post icon

Rose Courvoisier recently celebrated its first year anniversary as a product.  That’s not bad for a new product release in the ever competitive spirit space these days.  It seems like new products are being released weekly, if not daily.  It’s hard to keep up.  Rose Courvoisier is a liqueur at 18% alcohol by volume (versus the Courvoisier cognac that clocks in at a much heavier 36%) that was created by blending Courvoisier cognac and red wine.

Courvoisier recommends that this lovely libation be served neat or on ice.  But, we think it would make a great mixer too.  Here is our tasting note:

Color:  clear, medium dark pink color with orange hues

Aroma: clean, medium intensity of blackberry, blueberry, peach, dried cherry, dried apricot with oak notes of vanilla, nutmeg and cloves

Palate:  well integrated alcohol, medium minus sweetness (very light for a liqueur), medium intensity of blueberry, blackberry, peach, vanilla, nutmeg, cloves and oak with a well, integrated, fruity finish

Rating:  average to good liqueur that has smooth, well integrated alcohol.  Nice fruit flavors that are a bit overshadowed by the oak.

    Thanks for this great review. Courvoisier just launched their “Gold” Cognac – it’s kind of a complementary product to the Rosé they launched one year ago. It is a Cognac mixed with 70% Moscato wine from South France. See it as some sort of Pineau des Charentes fortified wine at 18% or 36 proof.
