A Cognac may be sold only when its youngest eau-de-vie reaches a minimum of two and a half years old, as of the first day of October following the harvest of the grapes.
Only the years of storage in oak barrels count to determine its age.
Once transferred into glass, the Cognac stops maturing. It stands still.
A V.S (for Very Special), also called *** (or Three Stars) is a cognac which youngest eau-de-vie is at least two and a half years old.
A V.S.O.P ( for Very Superior Old Pale), also called Reserve, is a cognac which youngest eau-de-vie is between four and a half and six and a half years old.
A Napoleon, or X.O (for Extra Old ), also called Hors d'âge, is a cognac which youngest eau-de-vie is at least six and a half years old.
Most Cognac houses will use Cognacs much older than those required by law, allowing X.Os to reach a minimum of twenty years old, in order to reveal their very best.

XO Extra 1755, the finest cognac from Gautier
A blend of very old “eaux de vie”, some that have been aged in the “Paradis” wine cellars, this XO Cognac Extra has exceptional complexity and aromatic richness. Its splendid gold marked decanter sublimates the “1755” warm amber and intense colour. A prestigious gift for the true Cognac connoisseurs.
Bernard HINE & Nicholas Freeman, the late chairman of UK Havana cigar importers, Hunters & Frankau, combined their lifetime experience to produce this unique cognac, especially created for the cigar connoisseur.
Family Property since 1832, Louis Bouron is one of the only owners whose vineyard is spread over 3 of the best growths (crus) of the official region of the Cognac. Thanks to this specificity, their Cognac and Pineau des Charentes are the result of a smooth combination of the roundness & suppleness of Fins Bois, the violet flavour of Borderies and the floral bouquet of Petite Champagne.
Louis Royer XO embodies the perfect balance between the most prestigious crus of cognac, and meets the demands of the real connoisseurs. It is elaborated in blending the best eaux de vie which have been carefully selected amongst our oldest stocks.
