A Stunning Dress: the XO Cognac from Domaine de la Chauvillière
One of the finest exports of the Bons Bois terroir, the Domaine de la Chauvillière XO Cognac is certainly one to add to your collection. Harvested on the family-owned vineyard in Charente-Maritime, this Cognac offers a refined drinking experience with more than a decade of flavors and aromas.
Founded in 1950 by the Hauselmann family, the Domaine de la Chauvillière does not shy away from the heritage or tradition of the Maison - this XO Cognac has been aged for at least 10 years using traditional techniques such as vinification in their traditional Charentais copper still.
The region is known for its microclimate that produces exceptional harvests, especially with the Ugni Blanc grapes used in this Cognac - with long, dry summers and humid winters. This protection from adverse weather creates eaux-de-vie with a unique, aromatic intensity that can be used in cocktails, neat, on ice or even in high-end gastronomy.
All production processes happen on-site, from harvesting through to bottling, meaning the family has complete control over their produce. With its accessible price, this Cognac is an ideal contender for sipping neat with friends and family, while you savor the flavor profile that emerges.
This Cognac is best enjoyed neat, at room temperature. The Bons Bois cru creates strong, full-bodied aromas with a hint of maritime taste. We recommend leaving the Cognac to aerate in the glass for 10 minutes or so, or warming the glass with your hand before nosing and tasting.
