Eye: Amber with copper reflections

Nose: Powerful with subtle rancio notes, orange zest, floral, oak and vanilla. Fine and elegant on the nose.

Palate: Elegant and well balanced between alcohol and oak. White fruit with a slight rancio flavor. Overall fruity with a balanced complexity. A great initial Cognac for beginners but also appreciated by professionals. The finish is long with notes of wood that are not overly powerful but have a floral touch.

Description

Maxime Trijol XO Classique

A Cognac cult classic, Maxime Trijol XO Classique is a multi-award winning, extra old blend of the best quality eaux-de-vie from each of the six Cognac growth appellations. A flawless fusion of eaux-de-vie, curated as a result of the meticulous artisan craftsmanship of Masion Maxime Trijol. Not only is the rich aromatic harmony of this XO the sign of a well matured Cognac, but it is the sign of a well-experienced master-blender too. With floral fragrances, flourishing into rich and spicy flavors on the palate, this Cognac offers a sensory delight that will impress connoisseurs and Cognac enthusiasts alike.

Matured in Limousin French oak barrels, XO Classique is a blend of many different years. As an XO the youngest component is ahed for at least 10 years. However, the house of Maxime Trijol typically allows the Cognacs to age far longer than the minimum required number of years. Instead, choosing to bottle their blends when the cellar-master is sure that the eaux-de-vie have reached their fullest potential in the casks.

Presentation of the bottle

This XO delight is elegantly presented in a smoothly, curved carafe with a gold stopper to match. The accompanying gift box compliments the Cognacs stunning amber colouring which highlights hints of mahogany as it catches the light. A lovely gift idea for someone who lavishes in life’s luxuries.

How to enjoy

The smoothness and aromatic intensity of this XO are best appreciated at the end of a meal. Be sure to take your time in order to soak the experience and get the most out of the tasting. We recommend drinking an XO of such fine quality, neat, or on the rocks. Sip and savour its rich flavors as they elegantly evolve across the palate.
