Description

Bourgoin XO Marée Haute 2008 Cognac

Embark on a unique tasting adventure with the Bourgoin XO Marée Haute 2008 Cognac, a spirit that boldly redefines tradition. This innovative Cognac incorporates a touch of seawater during aging, reducing it to 43% ABV. Inspired by the golden age of the merchant navy, it evokes dreams of long voyages where the sea spray mingles with the Cognac, influenced by the whims of the weather.

Previously bottled under the name Eau-de-Mer, this cognac showcases prefetly the aromas of salted butter caramel (toffee), the remarkable salinity, and an unprecedented length on the palate.

Presentation of the Decanter or Bottle

The bottle of Bourgoin XO Marée Haute 2008 Cognac exudes a minimalist yet striking design that speaks to the modern connoisseur. The cylindrical bottle is made of clear glass, showcasing the rich, amber hue of the Cognac within. The label is simple and bold, featuring the brand name "Bourgoin Cognac" in large, black, uppercase letters against a white background. Below this, the label provides essential details including "Vinifié, Distillé et Élevé sur le Domaine" which translates to "Vinified, Distilled and Aged on the Estate", emphasizing the handcrafted nature of the Cognac. The name "Marée Haute" (High Tide) is highlighted within a black-bordered box, reinforcing the maritime theme.

The bottle is topped with a natural wooden cap, adding a touch of rustic elegance and ensuring a secure seal. The combination of the clear glass, bold typography, and natural wood creates a visually appealing package that reflects both tradition and innovation. This decanter is sure to be a conversation starter, evoking the spirit of nautical adventures and the merging of sea and spirit.
