Description

Lavenat XO Cognac

Lavenat XO Cognac is a beautifully well-matured blend that spent an average of 30 years aging in French oak barrels - which is 20 years more than required for a Cognac to classify as XO quality. Talk about getting more than what you bargained for?

Produced in very small quantities, all of the Cognacs produced by Lavenat have been made with love and unquestionable passion. Fronted by Bernard Lavenat, who takes the role of the cellar master, Bernard doesn’t remember a day when Cognac production wasn’t at the centre of his world. His admirable enthusiasm and passion for the craft are embodied through each and every Cognac in his small collection of products.

Presentation of the bottle

Displayed in an emerald green frosted glass bottle, the form of the decanter is somewhat symbolic of a Champagne or sparkling wine bottle. Not to be confused with wine; however, this bottle contains a blend of 30-year-old eaux-de-vie. Adding to its opulent presence, golden foil decorates the neck of the bottle, while swirly typology marks its heritage and refined image.

How to enjoy

An XO of such fine quality and esteemed age merits being served in its purest form - neat and at room temperature. Pour the precious nectar into a tulip glass and let it rest for a few minutes before taking your first sip. This way, the aromas will be given time to evolve and open up to their fullest potential.
