Marancheville Exemplaire N°4 Cognac
Exemplaire N°4 is the fourth edition of Marancheville’s Exemplaire limited edition series which stands proud as a collection of Cognacs that symbolizes the brand’s passion for exceptional quality that stands in a league of its own. Offered in small quantities and renewed every year, “Les Exemplaires” are the fruit of our know-how and our inspirations.
Deriving from a blend of eaux-de-vie distilled on lees in the early 1980s on the Marancheville estate. N°4 endured a long maturation process (35 to 40 years); during this time, the aromas are slowly concentrated, and beautiful complexity emerges. In this Cognac in particular, the distinct nuance of candied orange prevails, which, combined with a woody structure, makes for a sensationally autumnal or festive delight.
A limited-edition Cognac that is made in small quantities and entirely with eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne, there are only 257 bottles of this delicious nectar available, making it a rare gem of the premier cru.
Enjoying a Cognac blend from Marancheville can only mean immersing oneself in the elegance and power of this highly-esteemed Cognac terroir. Their philosophy is simple - one does not have to be a Cognac connoisseur to appreciate a good Cognac.
Presentation of the bottle
Designed with class and an eye for standing out, Marancheville favors unique and contemporary bottle designs that differ from the rest. A true representation of quality and good taste, the sleek form and understated elegance embody the brand’s modern values beautifully. Meanwhile, the handwritten product details on the label reflect Cognac's traditional roots and the house’s heritage with a touch of authenticity.
How to enjoy
Aged to perfection, N°4 is classified as an XO quality Cognac, although some of its eaux-de-vie spent up to 40 years aging in French oak barrels. As a result, we recommend tasting this Cognac jewel the traditional way, neat and at room temperature. You may wish to add a few ice cubes to the glass to allow the aromas to open up even more.
A tempting beauty
I have never had the chance to visit this producer, but it has been on the list for a long time. And after tasting this cognac, I think I have to make it happen. This is a 35-40 year old Grande Champagne in a limited edition. I have tasted one the previous version, but this is somewhat older. This...
Really fine - Marancheville L´Exemplaire No. 4 Limited Edition Cognac
Tasted from a sample of the Advent Calendar: Beautiful golden colour. Deep fruity nose on oranges, dried mangos and fresh grounded spices - fine! On the palte clean, pure citrus fruits, dense and focused mixed with fine spices. The palate is fullbodied, the finish long. I like this deep fruity,...
About Marancheville Cognac
A young brand by name, but not by experience, Marancheville Cognac is the creation of two family men, Gregoire and Laurent, who decided to not only distill eaux-de-vie for the larger known brands, but to put their passion into creating quality cognacs under their own brand. What a great result!
