This XO, made with expertise handed down from generation to generation, has an oaky character provided by Limousin oak barrels. The blend has been patiently aged for decades, and the youngest component has spent many years in barrel.
This rich, expertly-blended Cognac is distilled in a generations-old 10 hectolitre pot still and aged in Limousin oak barrels in our calm, dark, humid cellars. Patient natural ageing has done wonders for this Hors d'Age blend.
This Cognac epitomises the expertise and care lavished by several generations. It reflects the best possible use of oak to reveal and highlight a beautiful mahogany colour and an intense rancio aroma.
XO Grande Champagne
A fully mature, old school XO. Decades of ageing realise the potential of Grande Champagne Cognacs and prove that they counterbalance even extensive use of new oak. Opulent rancio and notes of smooth, vanilla-like butterscotch from melted tannin are rarely found in ordinary XOs.

Clean, vanilla and smooth on the palate. First rancios.
