Jenssen Carte Blanche XO Cognac
Jenssen Carte Blanche is an XO Grande Champagne Cognac, which arrives in a 70cl bottle at 40% ABV. Having undergone a maturation process of 12 years, Carte Blanche unveils light and fresh aromas, allowing it to stand proud as a spring and summer Cognac to be enjoyed in beautiful weather.
Home to top of the range distilling and harvesting equipment, Maison Jenssen boasts a high-end range of Cognacs. From a luxurious VSOP through to limited edition, very old sought after Hors d’age products, this Cognac house’s collection is well worth knowing about. The Jenssen estate also welcomes tourists to stay on site with magnificent views overlooking the vineyards in the distance.
Presentation of the bottle
Oozing elegance and style, the bottle presents the look of slightly frosted glass work, alongside equally chic silver details. Like others in the Jenssen range, the bottle is understated and draws attention to the stunning color of the Cognac inside. Golden hues catch the light of this bottle beautifully - a perfect centerpiece to a table of guests.
How to enjoy
Best enjoyed with the sun beating down on a warm summer's afternoon - we recommend Carte Blanche XO neat or topped up with ice and tonic water. Pair with a good cheese board and the best company for a blissful experience to remember.
