Description

Armagnac Sempé XO

Armagnac Sempé XO is an extra old blend of eaux-de-vie that has 6-15 years aging in wooden casks before being bottled at 40%. This XO contains an impressive array of aromas before the Armagnac has even passed your lips. It boasts powerful aromatic strength and prevailing orange and woody flavors, which contrast delectably against subtle underlying hints of caramel and violet. Upon the first sip, expect to be greeted with a further injection of tangy sweetness, as notes of plum marmalade swim smoothly across the palate. An overall well-balanced Armagnac offering great length and an inviting sweetness - the perfect XO for connoisseurs with a sweet tooth.

Sempe is one of Armagnac’s most well-known trading houses. Founded in 1934 by Abel Sempe, in the Gascon region, he developed the brand on an international level. Innovation is therefore at the heart of the house of Sempe. The family business seeks to continue producing Armagnac in the same way that Abel Sempe once did, which strives to combine savoir-faire with enabling Armagnac to be as accessible to as many people as possible.

Presentation of the decanter

Housed in a heavy set, cubic decanter - the design is a mix of both contemporary and traditional. Meaning it really does suit the preferences of all Armagnac connoisseurs. Finished with strong, bold typography this XO stands proud with its striking presentation. The perfect gift to someone who appreciates well-aged Armagnac.

How to enjoy

This stand-alone Armagnac is ideally sipped neat, preferably from a traditional tulip glass or snifter. Sip and savour as the patchwork of sweet and fruity flavors open up in time. This XO also serves deliciously as the accompaniment to a post-dinner cheese course.
