Chabasse XO Impérial Cognac: a Delightful Conversation Piece
To taste an expression like Chabasse XO Impérial Cognac is to sample Cognac at its peak. After being left to mature for over a decade, the eaux-de-vie within this blend combine in a way only finely aged Cognac can, perfectly incorporating an impressive bouquet with a lengthy palate. With its aromas of tobacco and dried florals combined with touches of toasted nuts, there is no mistaking the individuality and quality of this Extra Old Cognac.
Crafted from a combination of Colombard, Folle Blanche and Ugni Blanc grape eaux-de-vie, this blend utilizes a range of crus to create depth and complexity. With surprising notes like saffron, ginger and coconut emerging on the palate, this is a conversation piece that won’t disappoint.
