Couprie XO Carafe Elégance Cognac
Couprie XO Carafe Elégance Cognac is a pure Grande Champagne delight; powerful, elegant, with subtle spicy overtones and a rich, warm finish. Pleasing from the outset - with it's warm, amber tones on the eye and complex range of aromas including prominent nuances of vanilla and honey.
This XO is made with expertise that has been handed down from generation to generation, and features an oaky character provided by Limousin oak barrels. The blend has been patiently aged, and the youngest component has spent a minimum of 10 years in the barrel.
The house of Couprie is run by a family of vine-growers that have been based in the Grande Champagne area of Cognac since 1730. Putting both their passion and skills to good use, this Cognac house maintains centuries of family tradition by distilling their own wine from start to finish - all in the quest of producing fine, flavourful and elegant Cognac purely all for the enjoyment of Cognac connoisseurs.

About Couprie Cognac
When Pierre Couprie received the distillation permit in 1750, he introduced a long history for the Couprie family. Their estate in Ambleville in the Grande Champagne has been the home to the cognac house sine generations. Like many smaller producers, Couprie Cognac uses only its own wine production to ensure and control the highest quality of their eaux-de-vie. Courpie also produces Pineau des Charentes and liqueurs to broaden their product range.
