The Marancheville XO Grande Champagne Cognac a blend of premier cru eaux-de-vies that have been aged for over 30 years. As one would expect from such a quality, the cognac boasts wonderful notes of rancio (a taste that only occurs through extended aging).
The house is deservedly proud of this cognac, a blend of their best barrels of cognacs that have been quietly aging over the years. Presented in a clean-lined, classy decanter, this is a cognac that takes the drinker on a tasting journey. Enjoy the aromas of candied orange, nuts, and spices, before being tantalized be a myriad of tastes on the palate. Balanced, smooth, with satisfyingly long finish, this is a cognac that both the connoiseur and novice can participate and enjoy.

ON THE NOISE: Spices – Nuts – Candied orange.

FINISH: Rancio coming through clearly on the palate, combined with a light bitterness on the finish.
After having read the recommendation by Max here I decided to order.. verdict: a total winner. Probably even better than Martell Cordon Bleu (which is an extra cognac and is one of my favorites). Great, great cognac - very smooth, very round.. not sharp at all.. and really worth the money
Great value for money I'd say, this cognac is really balanced and smooth. The punch is very, very careful - and the Grande Champagne grapes make this cognac really delicious. Bravo!
This XO is one of the best Cognacs I've taste in 2016, it is complex and balanced - very well balanced I'd say. These two distillers have created a great Extra Old Cognac which can easily compete with the top 4 (Hennessy, Courvoisier, Remy Martin, Martell).
