Description

A Millésime XO Cognac from the Grande Champagne

A powerful and elegant Cognac, since it appeared in 2013 it has certainly made a big impression. The Chateau de Beaulon XO Vintage 1980 Cognac is a stunning Millésime Cognac; it provides a perfect snapshot of the Grande Champagne cru from the harvest of 1980. The Chateau de Beaulon is enviably situated on the undulating and chalky hillsides of the Gironde estuary in the Premier Cru, benefiting from a temperate climate with a dominant exposure from the West/South West.

They also farm their grapes sustainably to respect the natural balance of this historic region. The 1980 Vintage Cognac is crafted using Folle Blanche, Colombard and Montil grape varieties, remaining loyal to the traditional 16th-century wine stocks belonging to the vineyard.

Distillation takes place with light lees using 4 small volume pot stills which are handcrafted in copper. The swan’s necks and still heads are key to the distillation process at the Chateau. The low volume increases the aromas and concentrates the floral, fruity aromas.
