Growth area & soil: Blend
The Monnet XO (former XO Prestige) Cognac is a subtle blend that combines both complexity and delicacy. The eaux-de-vie that make up the cognac mainly come from the terroirs of Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne, the two most prestigious crus of the cognac region, and they are elegantly completed by Fins Bois crus.
With a decanter that was redesigned in 2010, it's elegantly presented - and certainly one that doesn't need to be locked away in a cabinet...
This quality of this delightful XO has been recognised by winning various awards. These include:
Bronze medal at the Concours Général Agricole of Paris in 2005
Bronze medal at the LDG Competition in Frankfurt, Germany in 2007
