Aur de Balanesti cognac is one of the best-selling cognacs in Russia. And this is not in vain. Aur de Balanesti is a bright star in the collection of original cognacs of Moldavskii Standard House. The name of the cognac is dedicated to the large number of dynasties of good-hearted wine growers living at the bottom of the famous mountain of Balanesti who create high-quality wines and cognacs with passion.

Experts make it of aged cognac spirits, based on classic technology, using French equipment. They keep the cognac in oak barrels for at least seven years.

Legend

The name of “Aur de Balanesti” cognac means “Gold of Balanesti” — the highest peak in Moldova.

Each bottle is decorated with a picture of a white stork with a bunch of grapes in its beak. This is not just a design solution, but a long-standing local legend. Once, when the Moldovan fortress was attacked by the Turks, imprisoned defenders had no food and water supplies.

They were exhausted and thought they would die. But, suddenly, from above the hills, beautiful white birds carrying bunches of juicy grapes flew to them. These birds saved these people and gave them the strength to win. As a sign of paying tribute to this folk legend, the professionals of the company “Moldavskii Standard” decided to decorate the label with the picture of a snow-white stork.

Gastronomic combinations

According to French experts, it is a great pleasure to drink the cognac from classic tulip-shaped glasses, enjoying the soft floral vanilla aftertaste.
