Tasting review

On the eye the cognac is fine golden, on the nose with some floral and vanilla notes. The taste is round and honeyed with a deep finish.

Description

Léopold Gourmel Extra Age des Fleurs 15 Carats cognac is an XO - a presents a fine and elegant Cognac. A great cognac for the hunting season, pairing delightfully with game meat and tender red wines.  This is a truly traditional cognac - no caramelized tones, pure vintage, strictly no additives, aged in un-toasted extra fine grain French oak casks, and never chill-filtered.  An adventure for the taste buds...

Presented in a beautiful decanter and presentation box - this is certainly a cognac that should'nt languish in the back of a drink's cabinet - it's certainly attractive enough to be out on display...

About Leopold Gourmel Cognac

This cognac house has always relied on natural processes. From growing the grapes to picking, maturing, distilling, aging and bottling them, Gourmel cognac is free of any chemicals, pesticides or additives to enhance color in respect of nature and the final product. The philosophy of the company is to concentrate on quality not quantity, which means that one year the outcome may be higher than in others. This is further shown by the radical decision to produce only pure vintage cognacs, so there is no blending of different years in order to create VS, VSOP or XO cognacs for instance. To go with this authentic approach, the design of Gourmel is simple and modern.

Q&A

Ole 2013-07-28

Yes, this is the cognac for connoisseurs!If you think cognac should be related to its origin; grapes, no sugar added, no vanilla and no artificial stuff this is the cognac for you! A 15 year old single vintage (I think single wineyard too) you can see by the light colour that they use 2nd hand barrels. The bonus is a pure, superlong aftertaste.If you like to pay more for sugared and so heavily oaked cognac that it's impossible to know you are drinking a product based on grapes, go for the XO in an expensive bottle from the big houses with expensive marketing campaigns adding zero to the quality of the cognac.

This is definitely my favorite Cognac. One bottle is at least one tenth of my monthly income so it is not something I consume in quantity. I am still enjoying a bottle I bought in Chicago over 3 years ago.
