Description

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

About Brillet J R Cognac

Proud of its family tradition, Brillet Cognac insists that the history is entirely linked to that of cognac. As early on as 1656, Guy Brillet installed his first alembic (the classic still) at his property in the Grande Champagne. This was the introduction of the double distillation process that creates cognac to this day. The Brillets live off their philosophy that things made with care are more valuable, sticking to traditional techniques of production and packaging. Their motto is not to impress through high maintenance or expensive containers, but rather through a humble and high quality aesthetic: a real family business!
