Couprie XO Grande Champagne Premier Cru Cognac
Couprie XO Grande Champagne Premier Cru Cognac is a well-aged offering made with expertise passed down through the family-run business from generation to generation. This XO boasts aromatic complexity with strong spicy flavors which contrast delightful against subtle hints of honey and vanilla. It’s oaky character is the result of its aging process taking place in Limousin oak barrels. A blend that has been patiently matured over decades, with the youngest component spending at least 10 years in the barrel.
The Couperie family have been vine-growers, based in the Grande Champagne area of Cognac since 1730. Putting their passion and skills to good use, the Cognac house maintain the family traditions of distilling their own wine to make fine, flavourful, elegant Cognac, for the pleasure of dedicated connoisseurs. The wines are stirred before distillation to enhance aromatic concentration. Double distillation is the focus of the brands centuries’ old craft, and the distiller’s nose is still the only instrument capable of selecting the finest eaux de vie. Next, the long maturation process takes place in the estate's ancient, dark, slightly humid cellars. The Cognac is aged exclusively in Limousin oak barrels, gradually acquiring a deep, amber colour and exquisite flavour.

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.
