Description

Bertrand XO Cognac

Bertrand XO Cognac is a delightful blend of Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie that has been aged in oak casks for around 35 years. These eaux-de-vie which are distilled using the traditional method have been carefully selected by the Cellar Master to produce an elegant and powerful Cognac. This Single Estate XO is limited and numbered and is the pride of the Bertrand Domaine. A double gold medal winner it’s complex and balanced and showcases some of the less usual aromas and flavors, such as coffee and cocoa.

The Bertrand family estate is situated in the heart of the Petite Champagne region, where they work full circle, from the vine to the bottle. All the Cognacs are Single Estate production, from Ugni Blanc and Colombard grapes which have been harvested exclusively in their own vineyards, which is their guarantee of authenticity and origin. Read our blog article about Bertrand Cognac: Strength, Passion and Female Influence.

Presentation of the bottle

An excellent addition for collectors and enthusiasts alike. Arriving in a slim and stylish bottle, alongside a bespoke box to match - this XO serves well as a lavish gift for someone special. Sophistication is at the centre of the bottling design, as black and gold detailing injects an element of luxury. Meanwhile, those lucky enough to own a bottle will admire the shimmering copper coloring of the eaux-de-vie as it catches the light.

How to enjoy

This is a top-quality Cognac to be enjoyed as a digestif at the end of a good meal. Sip it neat to appreciate the Cognac for all its glory. And for those who love a cigar, this XO certainly has more than enough character to be an excellent partner. The depth and complexity of this XO Cognac means it is one to be savored.

Outstanding Cognac

Bertrand XO is a blend of Petite Champagne aged 35 and 40 years. Just a lovely nose, with dried fruits, and a little vanilla and wood spice. I want to crawl into the glass!!! The palate is alive with dried and candied fruits, some kind of nut, and a hint of chocolate? The finish is extremely long, and so pleasing. This is an outstanding XO Cognac!!!

Very smooth and soft on the palette.

First time we have tried this particular cognac. We found it very pleasant and not strong or any overpowering vapour.
Strong toffee and vanilla flavours throughout and has a slight bite towards the end. There is no distinct rancio.
Overall, it is one very nice cognac and I would not hesitate to buy this again.

Unknown brand, great Blend!

I had never heard of Bertrand cognac. Then I tasted their XO, really rich and balanced. The aromas are fantastic! The finish could be a little less punchy though. The price could be slightly lower (10% or so), on the other hand you support the Bertrand family.. so that's totally fair to pay

Bertrand XO

This cognac is complex and definitely shows it’s age. It’s very well rounded with vanilla and fruit on the nose. It is very distinct on the palate with nuttiness, caramel, and fruit such as orange bitters. Be sure to let this aerate!!! I tasted and smelled this before and after letting it sit -20 minutes, it makes a huge difference!! I could even smell floral notes that I didn’t pick up before. I am a beginner cognac drinker so I am sure more experienced connoisseurs would taste more. The only con I have is I wish it was slightly smoother. Although it has a nice balance of alcohol, there is a bit of a bite then it gets smoother. This is definitely worth trying. I would pick this over the more popular and mass produced XO’s of the same price bracket any day. I gave this to my father as a Christmas gift and he loves it, sipping this together for the first time is an experience I’ll never forget. Superb cognac!
