Tasting review

Eye: Polished mahogany. Good clarity and sparkle.

Nose: First nose delivers a rich, concentrated scent of fresh tobacco, leather, vanilla, hazelnuts and a touch of vanilla powdered sugar.

Palate: A mellow sweetness envelops the tongue, bringing forth flavors of marzipan, fruit cake and licorice. Bright and fruity notes of fresh figs and grapes are sweet and tasty. The finish is long and full.

Description

An Organic XO Cognac from the Grande Champagne

Introducing an artisanal organic Cognac created in harmony with the natural elements of the region. Descending from the undulating fields of the Premier Cru, the Mery Melrose Organic XO Cognac is a great spirit created with the utmost savoir-faire. This Cognac house use certified Ugni Blanc grape varieties to produce such exceptional eaux-de-vie. Mery Melrose strives to deliver all of their Cognacs from organic vineyards, to create feel-good blends with bright aroma and flavor. This particular Melrose XO Cognac has been matured between 12 and 20 years in both new and old French oak casks and is a broad and potent blend. The presentation of this decanter makes it extra special, as it is designed as a tribute to the prehistoric wall paintings in French caves.

The Grande Champagne terroir has been chosen for this Eaux-de-vie thanks to its incredible geological makeup and ability to produce glorious Cognacs. The soil is chalky, and the subsoil limestone. Alongside its maritime climate, these are all factors that contribute to such an elegant XO.

How to serve the Mery Melrose Extra Old Cognac

This Organic XO is designed to be enjoyed neat, and is perfect for extending the quieter moments at the table after dinner. It goes perfectly with cheeses such as Roquefort and Camembert. It also goes beautifully with white chocolate and Tarte Tatin.

Presentation of the Mery Melrose XO

The presentation of Méry Melrose Cognacs have a unique and fitting story. The distinctive design is influenced by prehistoric art found in ancient caves in southwestern France. These paintings date back an incredible 18,000 years, and is a clear nod towards a time when animals and man lived side by side in harmony. This Cognac house symbolize their ancestors and love for the terroir.

The Méry Melrose story

Described as both ‘farmer and artist’, Master Blender Francois and Janis Méry created the Cognac brand after being inspired by their love for each other; the rose represents love for their family and craft. They are organic growers, and viticulturists. Francois is a fourth generation Cognac distiller, and has both tradition and his modern innovation to thank. As a young man, he traveled to Australia to work for an independent biodynamic wine producer, and felt inspired to bring his ideas back to France.

The process takes place at the Maison from start to finish; from harvesting the organic grapes, to distilling and blending. The ageing process takes place in their family cellars; the Cognac ageing in both old and new Limousin oak barrels of 400 liter capacity.
