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.

Tasting notes by Marancheville Cognac
STYLE: An authentic Cognac, it perfectly embodies the style of Marancheville.
ON THE NOISE: Spices – Nuts – Candied orange.
ON THE PALATE: Balsamic notes (cedar) – Good length on the palate, with a perfect balance between fruity and woody notes.
FINISH: Rancio coming through clearly on the palate, combined with a light bitterness on the finish.
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).
