Dobbé 10 year-old Petite Champagne Cognac
DOBBÉ Cognac 10 Years is a sublime Cognac for connoisseurs. Produced exclusively in the sought after Petite Champagne, it is a Cognac made from one of the most highly regarded growing regions. Whilst it is bold in colour and contains a higher volume of alcohol than most Cognac’s, it remains a smooth, extremely well-balanced choice. A 700ml bottle comes in a beautiful round gift box, making it the perfect choice, or gift for anyone that shares a deep love for Cognac.
With Cognac expertise dating back ten generations, the Dobbé family undoubtedly produces exceptional Cognac’s. Thanks to a vineyard located on the sun-drenched hills of the Petite Champagne, the Cognac house is renowned for producing exceptionally smooth Eaux-de-vie. Recognised for its strong values and love of the land, each and every Dobbé Cognac creation is one of great superiority.
Presentation of the bottle
Marked with elegance, the decor of this bottle is impactfully understated. Using the complementary blend of black and gold, the sheer sophistication is evident at first glance. Dressed as a true classic, it is a great choice for an exceptional gift, or to feature boldly at a special occasion.
How to enjoy
Candidly a Cognac for the connoisseurs, this is a drink most suited to solo enjoyment. Place alone, on the rocks, or with a splash of water to allow the sophisticated blend of Eaux-de-vie to truly be treasured.
A good XO, for its price
First of all the box, the bottle and labels on it look extremely good. The rich amber color shows the age of this cognac. On the nose I smelt the smells of nuts, mostly walnut. This was the first cognac where I had this smell, I really liked it. On the palate it was actually not that great as on the nose, I felt the taste of walnut just a little, with some woody hints. This cognac has 43% ABV so it comes out on the taste, but aggressively. The aftertaste was long, and delightful, and again, thankfully the taste of walnut came back. I think this cognac is good value for its price.
