An Extra Cognac inspired by Roland Bru’s life
Perfectly balanced, this exceptional Cognac is the embodiment of the founder during this period of his life. The Roland Bru Extra Cognac was created in the image of Roland himself and is made exclusively of eaux-de-vie from the finest Cognac terroirs such as the Grande Champagne and Fins Bois and aged in French oak barrels. Aged between 15 and 25 years, it is well matured.
Acquiring the property in 1955, Roland Bru began producing Cognac at the estate in Sireuil, located near the Charente River. The Cognac Maisons owns 20 hectares of vineyards in the Grande Champagne, and 40 hectares in the Fins Bois. They also work in partnership with local wine growers. Run for three generations by the Bru family, the Moisans Distillery has been a site of magic for many years. He decided that to make the best Cognacs, he would have to be quite patient, and so he stored away some of his oldest and finest Cognacs to leave them to age even longer.
How to enjoy
Enjoy this Cognac as a food pairing, try oysters with mirin dressing or seared scallops with mediterranean vegetables tossed with lemon dressing. It should be enjoyed neat to experience the full aromatic potential.
A rounded, full-bodied decanter and a silver stopper. It arrives in a stunning gunmetal grey presentation box.
After drinking deau XO cognac, I became interested in this extra cognac.
Open the wine bottle, emerging a green lemon and spicy ginger fragrance, feel very special.
A sip of cognac is very mellow, fresh flowers and preserved lemon linger together for a long time.
It's really a balanced cognac.
Thank you for the moment when cognac experts brought us happiness!
Thank Cognac experts for bringing us a happy moment!
This was our first Roland Bru, and we found it to be excellent, the best of our recent purchases. Amber, orange, bronze color. Creme Brulee nose. We could have enjoyed the nose for a long time before drinking, but couldn't wait too long to taste. Very smooth in the mouth, almost syrupy. We thought the palate was plum, chocolate and a hint of tobacco. Vanilla on the finish and it lingers for a long time. Not cheap, but a better value than some others. I am now a Roland Bru fan.
One problem was after the first tasting, we put the cork top back in. A week later, when we opened it, the cork broke off and I was unable to find a way to get it out, so now we have a cork in the Cognac. Note to self, be careful to twist that cork and not pull it straight out.
Very unique tasting to me. Not sure what I pick up on nose but it is pleasant. Very mild initial palette. Almost watery with a what is missing taste but within seconds the flavor hits. Good spice and nice finish. Definitely has lemon acidic aftertaste which makes up for the initial splash on the tongue mild hit.
i never heard of this brand before but i'll buy it again...soo smooth and flavorful well worth the money.
