Eye: Brilliant copper.

Nose: Initial bouquet of florals, spices, dried fruit and a hint of citrus. Distinctive and powerful notes of vanilla and honeycomb at the back.

Palate: In the mouth you find a balanced taste, dried fruits, and some spicy notes. Superior concentration of flavour with a rounded attack and a long, elegant finish

Bache Gabrielsen XO Fine Champagne Cognac: Fine Champagne Perfection

Aged for over 15 years, the Bache Gabrielsen XO Fine Champagne Cognac is a blend of selected distillates from Grande Champagne (65%) and Petite Champagne (35%). The eaux-de-vie for this Cognac were produced from 95% Ugni Blanc grapes, complemented by 5% Colombard and Folle Blanche. This expression is an example of an XO that exceeds its minimum age requirements by some margin, with some of the eaux-de-vie in the blend aged for nearly two decades. The result is a Cognac of exceptional depth and one that perfectly represents the esteemed Maison where it was produced. 

Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen, a young lieutenant from Norway, moved to Charente in 1903 to join his friend Peter Rustad in the Cognac business. Two years later, they took over the house A. Edmond Dupuy and gave it a new name: Rustad & Bache Gabrielsen. Thomas fully settled in the region, marrying a local woman who also worked in the Cognac industry. Peter sadly passed away suddenly in 1916, after which Thomas took over the whole business, eventually passing it to his son Réné. Today, Bache Gabrielsen is run by fourth-generation company director Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen. While keeping an eye on tradition, as an economist, Hervé also knows the importance of staying relevant in an ever-changing world. 

Bache Gabrielsen Cognac is currently distributed in the European Union, Japan, Taiwan, Russia and the USA, as well as Central and South America. Most importantly, Thomas would probably have been glad to know that the Cognac brand he founded is now the market leader in his native Norway, selling 1 million bottles per year.

Presentation of the Bottle

This XO Cognac comes in a tall, straight-sided bottle with a heavy base, minimalist label, silver foil and deep blue ribbon, all presented in a clean white gift box. Perhaps a reflection of the Maison’s Scandinavian roots, Bache Gabrielsen often favor clean, simple designs that let the liquid speak for itself. A great gift. 

How to Enjoy Bache Gabrielsen XO Fine Champagne Cognac

Well-aged, complex and rich, this Cognac is a perfect after-dinner treat. We suggest you enjoy it neat, in a slim tulip glass, alongside fine cheeses or even some dark chocolate.

About Bache Gabrielsen Cognac

Bache-Gabrielsen is a medium-sized family Cognac house with an international history. The company was created in 1905, and so it celebrated its 100th anniversary in the last few years. With its clean design, Cognac Bache-Gabrielsen takes an important position in the Cognac market, exporting mainly to Scandinavian countries. Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen, the fourth generation at the head of the company, is certainly aware that the Cognac industry is undergoing changes, with the international market being heavily developed and marketing strategies refined to cater for a younger, more fashionable consumer base. Given the size of the company compared to the major cognac houses, it is surprising to discover that this Norwegian cognac brand is the market leader in the sale of Cognac in Norway!
