A Petite Champagne XO Cognac - Platinum Edition
There’s little mistaking that this Cognac is the fine work of the Francis Abecassis estate, and their commitment to extraordinary single estate Cognac production. Le Reviseur XO Platinum Cognac comes from a brand that is the epitome of the Petite Champagne finesse. The aromatic richness, full body, and intensity have made the terroir particularly sought after. With this fine edition of the XO - a Platinum special - you can indulge in a piece of this fine estate.
Le Reviseur estate spreads over 90 hectares at the heart of the Petite Champagne, and they are particularly proud of the results. The aromatic wine is due to the distillation process that takes place in very small stills of 1600 liters, and aging in dry cellars. It is this process that gives a powerful Cognac such as this Extra Old Platinum - reflecting the potential of the cru.
The XO alone has picked up a number of awards including:
- Melbourne International Spirits Competition - Gold 2015
- IOWC - Silver 2015
- International Spirits Challenge - Silver 2013
The "platinum" and black box and bottle are stunning - indicating nothing short of sheer quality.
