Nose: The nose presents scents of maturity, intertwined with the sharpness of pepper and the warmth of spices, suggesting a Cognac with good depth. A captivating aroma of pear cinnamon compote emerges, blending ripe fruitiness with the hint of spice, indicating a well-rounded complexity. The natural sweetness is evident on the nose alone, enriched by the lush, floral notes of miel de fleurs, adding to the richness and fullness of the aroma.

Palate: On the palate, this spirit showcases a good sense of balance and complexity. The warmth of spices and the subtle kick of pepper provide a spicy undercurrent, while the smooth, good natural sweetness and the rich flavor of miel de fleurs create a luxurious mouthfeel. It wears its 43% alcohol nicely. The pear cinnamon compote note persists, offering a delightful blend of fruit and spice.

Finish: The finish is medium but satisfying, with a lingering warmth from the spices and a velvety richness that coats the palate. The natural sweetness and floral nuances of miel de fleurs gently fade. This spirit’s sense of balance and complexity is evident in every sip, making it a truly rich and rewarding experience.

Description

Grateaud XO Borderies Cognac

The Grateaud XO Borderies Cognac, a remarkable 30-year-old gem from the heart of the Borderies region, stands as a testament to the art of Cognac making. Distilled with meticulous care and aged extensively in oak barrels, this cognac unfolds layers of floral and creamy nuances, enriched by the passage of time. Bottled at 43% ABV, it delivers a balanced and profound tasting experience that captivates from the first sip.

Presentation of the bottle

The Grateaud XO is elegantly presented in a traditional Cognac bottle, its design reflecting the heritage and craftsmanship behind its creation. The bottle's graceful silhouette and the rich amber liquid it encases are a visual feast, promising an unrivaled tasting journey that speaks to the sophistication of the Borderies growth area.

How to drink

To fully appreciate the depth and complexity of the Grateaud XO, it is recommended to enjoy it in a tulip glass. This allows the cognac ample space to breathe, unveiling its evolving aromas and flavors over time. The 30 years of aging bring forth a richness and depth that is best savored slowly, making every tasting an exploration of the unique characteristics that the Borderies terroir imparts to this exquisite cognac.
