Léopold Gourmel XO Age Du Fruit 10 Carats Cognac

Leopold Gourmel Cognac

The Léopold Gourmel XO Age du Fruit 10 Carat Cognac is an old XO Fin Bois Cognac. At 41 % ABV. It matches well after white wines, after white meat or fish - or even Asian kitchen. The Age Du Fruit is produed without additives, aged in un-toasted French oak casks; never chill filtered - and certainly no artifial wood notes, and not caramelised. French Wine review, september 2006: "Nice and well balanced".

Pale gold in color and presented in an eye-pleasing decanter and presentation case, this is a great choice for a present to a cognac lover - or as a present to yourself...

Tasting Notes

The colour is pale golden, on the nose slightly bitter but in an enjoyable way. Hints of almond and nuts, the taste is dominated by fruit notes such as citrus, apricot, lemon, and orange. 

This cognac house has always relied on natural processes. From growing the grapes to picking, maturing, distilling, aging and bottling them, Gourmel cognac is free of any chemicals, pesticides or additives to enhance color in respect of nature and the final product. The philosophy of the company is to concentrate on quality not quantity, which means that one year the outcome may be higher than in others. This is further shown by the radical decision to produce only pure vintage cognacs, so there is no blending of different years in order to create VS, VSOP or XO cognacs for instance. To go with this authentic approach, the design of Gourmel is simple and modern.
