Tasting review

Eye: A deep amber with a hint of rustic gold.  

Nose: Its old age allows for spices and a hint of “rancio”, the woody aroma the spirit absorbs while aged in oak barrels, to surface. It has an aroma of golden raisin and apples.  

Palate: This Cognac classic has a complex body, with notes of bergamot and orange peel. On the palate, this XO is rich and full while being gentle at the same time. It doesn’t have the spiciness of other mature Cognacs that age, so it’s perfect for Cognac beginners, too.

Description

François Voyer Extra Old Gold

Since its arrival in 2007, the Francois Voyer XO Gold has certainly turned heads, having wowed the judges and Cognac lovers everywhere. Matured in oak barrels deep in the cellars of the Voyer estate for 20 to 30 years, its eaux-de-vie qualify as part of the Extra Old age category. The Grande Champagne terroir is known as the Premier cru within the region due to its chalky soil, making it porous and producing very fine Cognacs. The Paradise Cellar at Francois Voyer contains a sublime selection of eaux-de-vie which have been carefully put together for the XO Gold. For something that truly stands out from the crowd, the Voyer XO Gold is certainly the best choice due to its rich flavors that titillate the palate. It is known for its delicate assemblage of eaux-de-vie, and is a popular Cognac with some of the finest restaurants in France.

The philosophy behind the Francois Voyer Cognac Maison is one of double distilling their own artisanal produce. Such technique is practiced across all of their Cognacs, which span a range of ages, with the youngest at least 20 years old.

How to enjoy Francois Voyer Extra Old Gold Cognac

The bottle features an engraving of the elegant Voyer horse, the estate’s emblem. It comes packed in a luscious orange and gold box which reflects the amber colors of their high-quality, matured XO Cognac.

Voyer XO Gold is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks. We advise not to use this quality Cognac for mixing. Although it could make your cocktail taste even more delicious, it might also be a bit of a waste. Leave the Cognac to sit in your glass for around 8-10 minutes before trying it to allow the aromas to develop properly. Enjoy it cold as an afterwork drink, or on its own at room temperature after a delicious meal.

Read on our blog about the time that we went to the Francois Voyer Cognac maison to take a look at the inner workings of this incredible artisanal house. Upon visiting Prowein 2015, we were introduced to the XO Gold by Pierre Vaudon, the Cellar Master, and subsequently joined the ranks of its many award givers, and placed the Voyer XO Gold in our 2016 Top 10 Cognacs.
