Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
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 - honey and vanilla are very evident.
This XO, made with expertise handed down from generation to generation, has an oaky character provided by Limousin oak barrels. The blend has been patiently aged, and the youngest component has already spent very long time in barrel.
The smoothness and aromatic intensity of this XO are best appreciated at the end of a meal. Be sure to take the time to savour its subtle flavours as they develop deliciously on the palate.

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.
