Description

Frédéric Mestreau XO No.28 Fine Champagne: A Rare Cognac with a Rich History and Reasonable Price Tag

The Frédéric Mestreau XO No.28 Fine Champagne Cognac is an exemplary XO with its supple tannins, silky texture and smooth finish. It has spent over a decade masterfully maturing in Limousin oak casks. Containing eaux-de-vie distilled using exclusively Ugni Blanc grapes, the blend brings together two crus, Petite and Grande Champagne, in order to produce a formidable Fine Champagne expression of pure excellence.

Founded in 1808, the Frédéric Mestreau estate produced Cognac until 1919, after struggling with sales during the First World War. Almost a century later, Guilhem Grosperrin, an avid Cognac collector who travels all four corners of the globe to find rare and refined products, was given the opportunity to purchase 250 bottles of early 19th century Cognacs from Abel Mestreau's personal collection. Now, a century after the estate fell silent, the brand has been revived with the launch of the No 28 XO Fine Champagne Cognac. Described as "a very fine XO" that's "great for sipping", this particular Mestreau masterpiece found itself on The Spirits Business's list of 'Top 10 Value for Money Cognacs'. 

Winner of the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2016, the XO has a delicately fruity flavor profile with notes of raisins, prunes and a hint of licorice.

Presentation of the Decanter

An elegant and understated bottle, the Frédéric Mestreau XO No 28 Fine Champagne Cognac has classic off-white and gold detailing on its label and neck, with a traditional wooden stopper for added authenticity. The bottle equally comes with a stunning jet black presentation box for storage, gifting or display purposes.

How to Enjoy

We recommend sipping this exquisite XO in a traditional snifter at room temperature, leaving the Cognac to air for around half a minute or so will enhance its natural notes of wood and leather.

About Mestreau Cognac

Founded in 1808, Frédéric Mestreau is an important brand in the world of Cognac. It, unfortunately, as many do, fell by the wayside in 1919 and has since remained dormant. All that has changed in recent years, thanks to a recent purchase of Cognac Mestreau made by Guilhem Grosperrin, a man who is well versed in buying older, rare bottles from the most remote of corners in the region, and reselling them to Cognac lovers everywhere.
