Decanter in carton gift box François Voyer
Eaux de vie blended : 14 to 25 years old.
Distillation with lees.
Ageing by Limousin’s oak casks with medium burn, in new barrels for 3 years and than in old barrels or hogshead in a damp cellar.
Progressive reduction with distilled water (maximum diminution of 5% by operation every 6 month to 1 year) and using the technic of the « faibles ».
Tasting notes :
Colour : Amber, with a touch of old gold.
Aromas : Down among the flowers : touches of jasmine, clove pink, combined with the first flavours of fruits : peach, plums. The old maturation of this Cognac has given it its vanilla aroma and this light and sweet aroma that only an old Cognac has.
Palate : The outstanding touch for this XO is probably its great elegance which is one of the major characteristics of the « Premier Cru », fully represented here by the delicacy of aromas as well as the subtlety of its palate.
