Eye: Glimmering amber.

Nose: An interesting bouquet composed of walnuts and toasted almonds followed by dry spices and pears. 

Palate: Ample in the mouth, this is a soft and supple Cognac graced by notes of oak, ripe orchard fruits and winter spices. The nutty character leads into a pleasant and persistent ending, full of elegance.

Description

Chainier XO Grande Champagne Cognac: a Premier Cru Treasure

This wonderful old Cognac has spent over two decades aging in Limousin oak casks protected by thick cellar walls underneath the House of Chainier. It has been produced exclusively with eaux-de-vie sourced from the Premier Cru, and Chainier XO Grande Champagne Cognac certainly expresses all the complexity and elegance you’d expect from this esteemed region. Aged for significantly longer than what is required by law for an XO designation, this is a great-value product that would delight any Cognac lover. 

Chainier is a small artisanal Cognac house producing high-quality Cognacs from their estate in the heart of the Petite Champagne region. Passed down through generations, the House of Chainier utilizes grapes sourced from their two vineyards spanning across both the Grande Champagne and the Petite Champagne regions, which means their eaux-de-vie benefit from both soils of exceptional quality and proximity to the ocean. It is then down to the expertise and savoir-faire of the distiller and master blender to work their magic in developing the delicious Cognac. With this XO expression, they have combined all the qualities of Premier Cru eaux-de-vie with a lengthy maturation process, bringing out all the complexities you’d expect from an XO Cognac - and more. 

Presentation of the Bottle

The Chainier XO Grande Champagne Cognac comes in a tall, straight bottle, a classic style which was originally popular in the 19th century. The stylish retro label features the Chainier emblem and the bottle is sealed with foil around the neck. 

How to Enjoy Chainier XO Grande Champagne Cognac

Created with extraordinary care, this aged Cognac deserves your full attention. Serve neat in tulip glasses at room temperature, letting it rest for 30 seconds before taking the first sip. Perfect as an after-dinner drink, or enjoyed with rich desserts. This Cognac is also the perfect pairing for a fine cigar following an indulgent meal.

About Chainier Cognac

For generations, the Chainier family has been producing Cognac in both of the Champagne terroirs in Cognac. The current estate consists of a familial vineyard in the town of Arthenac and an 18-hectare estate in Lignières-Sonneville, both acquired by Dominique Chainier in the 1980s. Maintaining control of their production as well as their branding and marketing, the family produce a high-quality range of traditional Cognac as well as Pineau de Charentes, which they have been making since 1966.
