Tasting review

Tasting review by Claude Chatelier Cognac:

Deep mahogany hue. Oak on the nose with ripe aromas of vanilla and dried flowers. Harmonious palate, initially reminiscent of plum and candied fruit, opens up to delicious hazelnut and fig flavors. Rancio Notes appear gradually, accompanied by keys of leather and tobacco. A very old cognac with lovely, lingering flavors.

Description

The Claude Chatelier XO Extra Cognac is one of the small range produced by this house, which is owned by Maison Ferrand.  As with all of the Ferrand cognacs, the emphasis is on creating wonderful blends without using any mass production techniques.

This s a lovely XO quality cognac, both to look at and to taste.  It's presented in a delightfully simplistic decanter - one that will display well on a drinks counter.  Enjoy in good company after a fine meal when you have time to linger over the taste sensation that it provides.

Perfect Cognac for this price

Great XO with good age, fair price. Nose - lot of honey, flowers and hazelnuts. Taste - sweet with spices and oak.

Great value

My first pass gave me a strong vanilla honey suckle and hazelnut cake smell, on my second pass more Oak and tobacco begin to feel my nose and on my third pass I began to have a sense of subtle fruits and the addition of Walnut. The flavor was very smooth with only a light bite of alcohol but an extremely pleasant experience, I found it on sale for $47 and would say that it was worth every penny , Not my favorite XO by any stretch of the imagination but very nice for a daily sip
