Chateau de Plassac XO
The Chateau de Plassac XO is the house’s finest signature blend. Aged for up to 20 years, it possesses an enticing vitality. The object of attention and extreme care, it is an elegant choice that every Cognac connoisseur will appreciate.
A truly fine Cognac, this XO has obtained more than 6 gold medals on several continents, including Germany, Australia, Paris, Hong Kong, London and USA. A worldly choice, with undeniable expertise. Produced from a house renowned for optimising the finest eau-de-vie over the past 200 years, it is an impressively bold choice.
Presentation of the bottle
Its presentation is beautifully traditional, embodying all the design elements that make a historic XO special. Proudly stamped with the reputable Chateau de Plassac, its colours are classic, yet charmingly understated. Perfect for a Cognac lover that values simplicity and tradition.
How to enjoy
As an XO, it is best enjoyed on its own to allow the blend of eau-de-vie to be fully savoured. Its palate is beautifully paired with tuna tartare, mango and passionfruit. A tulip-shaped glass will enable a better appreciation of the palate’s invigorating attack.
I thought this was better when I tasted it some time ago
I think the nose is okay but not very intense. The value for money is a bit tricky I'd say - the mouth and the after taste is stronger and more intense. Chateau de Plassac should perhaps work the pricing a little bit.
