Product Details

In the glass, this Cognac is amber, with aromas of exotic vanilla, crème brûlée, candied orange and iris flower, which all come together to excite the senses. The iris flower flavor, coming from the house’s selection of the best Cognacs, is amplified through maturation in the humid warehouses situated next to the Charente River and under the warm Cognac sun. When a cask is toasted, it gives off an aroma of fresh bread as the flames caramelize the natural sugars in the oak. This gives younger cognacs obvious notes of vanilla and caramel, but gradually, over decades, these intense flavors soften to give a delicate crème brûlée flavor. Through the natural interaction of long maturation in fine-grained oak casks, the Cognacs give delicate sweet notes of candied orange. Consistently recognized as one of the finest XOs in the world, it has been patiently evolved and nurtured for at least two decades.

About the Producer

Courvoisier is based in the town of Jarnac in the Charente region of France. Originally established in Paris, in the French suburb of Bercy in 1809, Emmanuel Courvoisier started a wine and spirit company with Louis Gallois, then the mayor of Bercy. Originally, Emmanuel and Louis would act as traders for the best cognacs of the region. Eventually the two decided that the only way they could guarantee the very finest cognac was relocate to the region and become producers themselves. The 200-year-old crafting process has not changed since Courvoisier’s establishment in Bercy. Today, the company is owned by Beam Suntory.
