Eye:

A dark amber hue, with remarkably subtle golden tints

The perfect balance of warmth and spice. A pleasant vanilla essence, accompanied by cinnamon and a hint of nuttiness.

Palate:

Deep and fruitful. A solid length, with a finish that packs heat, but still remains delightfully smooth.

Omschrijving

Domaine du Puits Faucon XO Cognac

A pleasurable, hedonistic and comforting choice. A super XO quality Cognac, both the age and blend of the Domaine du Puits Faucon XO Cognac boast undeniable prowess. With an enticingly full flavour, the years this blend of Borderies Eaux-de-vie spent languidly aging in oak barrels has created utter brilliance.

Made from a truly fine Cognac house, headed by Daniel Bouillard, the history of Domaine du Puits Faucon Cognac can be traced back to the year 1865. Offering a small range of artisan-produced cognacs, this is a house that many may not have heard of… yet. Produced from hectares that cover the neighboring towns of Burie and St Sulpice-de- Cognac, the Domaine du Puits Faucon XO Cognac is part of a collection of hidden gems awaiting discovery.

Presentation of the bottle

Traditional, yet contemporary the style of this bottle is one that has a charming subtlety. With a red and gold label, the royalty of this Cognac’s contents is evident from the first impression. A beautiful design that would make an excellent gift, or feature at a special occasion.

How to enjoy

This is a wonderful XO quality cognac to enjoy when you have time to linger with good company. Suited to being enjoyed on the rocks, or with a splash of water to allow the deep depths of its flavour to surface. Offering tremendous value for money for a cognac of this age, from an artisan house, it's the perfect Cognac to be shared amongst friends.

Awards

Domaine du Puits Faucon XO Cognac was justifiably awarded a gold medal at the 2014 Paris Concours Générale Agricole.

Warming and hedonistic!

My understanding is that this is a 20-22 year old Borderies cognac. As a newcomer to the cognac world, I only have one other cognac in my possession to compare this too: Dudognon Napoleon (from Grande Champagne, 12 years old). Right away my nose gets warm, spicy Cola and maple syrup notes. Additionally, there's vanilla, a slight nuttiness, cinnamon, and pain d'epices (gingerbread). It's impossible to read about Borderies without seeing the "violet" smells reference. But honestly, living in the city, I just have no clue what a violet smells like, so I won't dare say this smells like violet. In the mouth it is full, fat, and rich. It's not as fresh as the Dudognon, but that is not for one second to say it lacks freshness. This cognac seems to be much more about maple syrup, vanilla, and warming baking spices than it is fresh and youthful fruit. I suppose this has to do with its age and also perhaps since it comes from Borderies. Really, I'd qualify this as comforting, warming and quite hedonistic. The length is great, and the finish packs a little heat but is smooth overall. In fact, the tight grip at the end provides a nice contrast to the fatness of the cognac - a nice balancing act. I am glad to be the proud owner of the bottle. Also, I should mention that this review is based of two nights of initial tastings, one glass neat and the other with a single drop of water, both of which tasted over several hours. That single drop of water was the preferred glass. Delivery and packaging perfect too!
