Description

XO Cognac Michel Bureau from the Petite Champagne - aged for a minimum of 40 years

An Extra Old Cognac has to be aged for a minimum of 10 years, but this Cognac house have truly outdone themselves in creating the Michel Bureau XO Decanter Cognac, as it has an average age of 40 years.

Using grapes cultivated solely in the exclusive Petite Champagne growing area, the result is an elegant and sweet nectar, with endless finesse. Even better - it is presented in a gorgeous decanter that will make the perfect gift for a Cognac connoisseur.

Having spent four long decades sleeping in the cellars in oak barrels, it has been double distilled according to Charentais methods, and years of savoir-faire. The vineyards of Michel Bureau Cognac are committed to the path of Conservation Agriculture and becoming ‘viticulturists’; in fact their estates are in the process of being given an HVE certificate for High Environment Value.

The Petite Champagne terroir is around 66,000 hectares in size, with more than 15,200 hectares dedicated to vines alone for Cognac production. Similar to that of the esteemed Grande Champagne, the soil is made up of clay and a more compact layer of chalky soil. The calcareous soil is the result of millions of years of fossilization; compacting the soil in such a way that it is very fine and provides easy drainage. Combined with the rolling terrain and the optimum maritime climate, this makes for excellent Cognac and eaux-de-vie.

This Cognac is proofed at 40% ABV.

How to serve

One for the connoisseurs, this Cognac should be enjoyed neat, and at room temperature in a snifter glass.
