Distillation with lees. Ageing by Limousins oak casks with medium burn, in new barrels for 3 years and than in old barrels or hogshead in a damp cellar. Progressive reduction with distilled water (maximum diminution of 5% by operation every 6 month to 1 year) and using the technic of the Ŧ faibles ŧ. Tasting notes : Colour : Amber, with a touch of old gold. Aromas : Down among the flowers : touches of jasmine, clove pink, combined with the first flavours of fruits : peach, plums. The old maturation of this Cognac has given it its vanilla aroma and this light and sweet aroma that only an old Cognac has. Palate : The outstanding touch for this XO is probably its great elegance which is one of the major characteristics of the Ŧ Premier Cru ŧ, fully represented here by the delicacy of aromas as well as the subtlety of its palate.
