Leopold Gourmel XO Cognac
Leopold Gourmel XO Cognac is a clean and refreshing Cognac that despite its age of around 10 years, boasts fresh and fruity flavors. Thanks to the aging process however, there are rich hints of rancio on the palate. A Cognac that pleases the senses from start to finish. From the high-quality packaging, to the eye-catching color, delicious aromas, taste and, naturally, a satisfyingly long finish, this Cognac wins on all fronts. A wonderful addition to any drinks cabinet.
Leopold Gourmel is a Cognac house that began in 1972 when founder Pierre Voisin first began curating Cognac, and as an ode to his grandfather, the brand was subsequently named Leopold Gourmel. Over the years, Leopold Gourmel has come on leaps and bounds and continues the tradition of excellence established by both Olivier Blanc and Nicolas Sinoquet who have strived to produce the very best quality, naturally produced Cognac that the region has to offer.

About Leopold Gourmel Cognac
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.
