Eye: Mahogany with copper highlights.

Nose: The bouquet harmoniously combines the finesse of dried flowers (iris and lilac) with the warmth of candied fruits, marmalade and crème brûlée. Slowly, a spicy sweetness of toasted oak and cigar boxes is revealed.

Palate: Remarkable intensity and aromatic complexity for a Cognac of this age, displaying a velvety texture and surprising amplitude.

Description

Croix Maron XO Grand Champagne Cognac: Center of Attention

Opulent and elegant, the Croix Maron XO Grand Champagne Cognac is the result of unique know-how and extended maturation. Fermented on the lees for extra flavor and a long finish, it has spend over 15 years in Limousin oak, much longer than the minimum required by law for an XO Cognac. Presented in an Art Deco-inspired decanter, it is as luxurious in appearance as it is on the palate: a pure expression of terroir, sublimated by the richness of age.

Named after Lord Segonzac, Knight of the Croix Maron, who according to legend invented the method of double distillation, the House of Croix Maron has been passing down the knowledge of Cognac making since 1718. The Daviaud family have been tending grapevines in the Grande Champagne region for ten generations, adhering to age-old practices to this day - which is why their harvest and winemaking process are still done by hand. 

Producing a range of artisanal Cognacs, the Daviaud family work with passion from the very beginning with the development of each vine, until the corking of each bottle. Every year, they will taste each individual cask to decide if it should be left to mature, blended, or moved. From the planting of the vines to the harvest, from the long period of maturation to blending, the Cognacs here may span the course of a generation or longer. In this way, some people will never see the fruits of their labor, while their children or grandchildren reap the rewards of their ancestors. 

Presentation of the Bottle

With its bold shape, cut crystal details and gold stopper, this is a bottle that is sure to stand out in any Cognac collection. It evokes the elegant, clean design elements of the 1920s and 30s, perfectly framing the amber liquid contained within.  

How to Enjoy Croix Maron XO Grand Champagne Cognac

Created with care, this is a Cognac that deserves your full attention. Serve neat in tulip glasses at room temperature, letting it rest for 30 seconds before taking the first sip. Perfect as an after-dinner drink, enjoyed with an espresso or a rich chocolate dessert. It would also be the perfect pairing for a fine cigar.
