Couprie Très Vieille Réserve Cognac
Couprie Tres Vieille Reserve Cognac is a well-aged blend of eaux-de-vie from the premier growing region of Cognac - Grande Champagne. A powerful, elegant Cognac that reveals subtle, spicy overtones on the palate, which proceed into a rich, warm and lingering aftertaste. Crafted with know-how and expertise passed down from generation to generation, this XO unveils an oaky character provided by Limousin oak barrels. The blend has been aged with patience, and its youngest component is at least 10 years of age.
The Couprie family have been vine-growers, based in the Grande Champagne area of Cognac since 1730. Putting their passion and skills to good use, this Cognac house maintains family traditions, by distilling their own wine to make fine, flavourful, elegant Cognac - all for the enjoyment of dedicated connoisseurs.
At Maison Couprie, 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 very finest of eaux-de-vie. The long maturation process then takes place in the estate's ancient, dark and slightly humid cellars. The Cognac is aged exclusively in Limousin oak barrels, gradually acquiring its amber color 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.
