Description

Extra Old in Stunning Black and Gold from AE Dor: the XO Nolly Carafe

Many collectors are aware of AE Dor’s cultural standing in the world of Cognac, and their importance as a distiller in the Jarnac region of Grande Champagne. Established in 1858, the passion has been passed down through the family, earning them the nickname as the “Antiquaire du Cognac”.

Exclusively integrated eaux-de-vie from Petite and Grande Champagne, this exquisite XO from the honourable house of AE Dor is an elegant yet delicate celebration of all things Fine Champagne. The company is renowned for its extremely wide range of vintages thanks to Amedée Eduard Dor’s hard work, hunting for the best and oldest Cognacs of the region throughout the late 1800s.

A.E Dor is most famous for its aging cellar, nicknamed “Le Paradis”, where some of the oldest Cognacs are stored in wax-sealed demijohns, a true paradise for any Cognac connoisseur. This family of master blenders is known for its unique collections, which include beautifully presented decanters and vintages as old as 1840! What makes this A.E Dor’s Cognacs so special is the maturation process that they go through.

Left in French limousin oak barrels with a capacity of up to 500 liters for a minimum of 50 years. They are aged in a humid cellar that has been selected for its particular level of humidity, which many believe is the secret to the blender’s high-quality Cognacs.

Containing a complex and well-balanced bouquet that evolves both on the nose and palate, experience floral notes perfumed with sweet honey and fresh vine shoots. The flavors develop and round out from a delicate and pleasant aroma to a more powerful punch on the palate.

Like the Cognac maturing year on year in oak barrels in the “paradise” cellars of the AE Dor estate, the flavors in this XO intensify with every sip, gradually revealing the famous variety of floral and fruity notes that characterize this region's flavor profile and celebrate its complexity.

This opulent Fine Champagne blend boasts an almost creamy body, with honey-roasted notes warming the fresh floral aromas creating a well-rounded and elegant drinking experience. This Cognac comes highly recommended for those Cognac connoisseurs who are particular fans of the premier cru.

How to Enjoy

As with most XOs, it's best to enjoy this Cognac neat, allow AE Dor's master blenders to take your tastebuds on a journey, experiencing new flavors that develop with every sip.

Presentation of the bottle

The carafe for this XO is truly a wonder to look at, coming with a superb black and gold case that glides open to be used as a stand for this stunning decanter.

The golden stopper and unique, almost star-like shape of this carafe is a true testament to its high quality and the heritage and craftsmanship that AE Dor represents.

This truly is a collector's item that should be proudly displayed on your drinks shelf, a unique and elegant design that both celebrates and encapsulates the refined nature of this Fine Champagne blend.
