Brillet J R Cognac

Brillet Très Vieille Réserve Cognac is an old cognac, 'XO par excellence' - aged for about 20 years in oak barrels, a 100% Grande Champagne cognac.

Aged for a full generation in small oak casks, this remarkable, elegant and distinguished cognac is 100% Grande Champagne, the Premier Grande Cru terroir of the Cognac region. Soft and biscuity with a nutty character this great Brillet Cognac has a fine bouquet, with notes of vanilla and rancio, a delicate and almost ethereal palate, persistent length and a very clean finish.

"The best hundred bucks you'll spend. A 20-year old Cognac that's in perfect harmony and at the peak of its evolution. The most apt descriptor, by a country mile: luscious."
- Rated 5 Stars - F. Paul Pacult, Spirit Journal

CLASSIC (96-100) / HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION
"The opening whiff offers aromas of toasted almonds and apple butter...middle stage adds delicate aromas of old oak ...and on the last nosing; two decades of maturation in small oak barrels. On the palate the multi-layered flavors glide along in perfect harmony. The finish is long, oaky sweet, and a bit caramel-like." Best Buy - Wine Enthusiast
