Croizet XO Heritage Cognac
Croizet XO Heritage takes tasters on a journey through history, as this Heritage Cognac is re-release, withstanding the test of time decades later. As an XO this Cognacs youngest component is at least 10 years old, but it is likely to contain blends much older. The long maturation process and use of French oak barrels gives the Cognac the characteristics it offers today, including aromas of prune, honey, dry cocoa and cigar box. A distinct and powerful Cognac revealing unrivalled Premier Cru finesse.
With a story that can be traced back to links with Napoleon, Cognac Croizet boasts over 200 years of history. Located in the heart of Grande Champagne country, the brand produces an exceptional range of first class Cognacs. Today the house of Croizet is no longer owned by the founding family, however tradition, savoir-faire and artisanal craftsmanship is still very much at the forefront of what makes this Cognac house so special. Meanwhile, the new owners are adopting a modern take to Cognac production with a strong focus on innovation.
Presentation of the bottle
Dressed in a curvaceous carafe, the dark amber eaux-de-vie inside draws the eye closer to the intricate details of the label design on both the front and the neck of the bottle. Gold accents pull the presentation together elegantly, while a stunning golden bottle cap is an opulent finishing touch. A Cognac for those who lavish luxurious aesthetics.
How to enjoy
A well-matured Cognac like Croizet XO Heritage Cognac should be appreciated in its entirety and therefore sipped neat. Pair with chocolate at the end of a meal for a sublime tasting experience to remember. It also pairs sensationally with meat or as a digestif alongside a fine cigar.
A Refined & Different XO
The most refined Grand Champagne XO I've had though Fillioux XO So Elegantissime is equally smooth. Frequently, amazing cognacs are best savored on their own because there is so much there.
Croizet XO, however, enhances already great experiences instead of competing with them. Watching a classic movie with family and a tulip glass of it makes for a delightful evening.
