Description

Monnet XO Flamboyant Cognac: The Sunshine Cognac

As a coronation of the meticulous production process, Monnet XO reveals the dedication and devotion that goes into successfully curating such a pleasurable product. Cognac Monnet XO Flamboyant is an Extra Old Cognac, crafted through the slow blending of eaux-de-vie, selected primarily from Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne. Aged in Limousin oak casks far beyond the minimum time required for the XO appellation, this enchanting elixir embodies all the warmth, generosity and quality of which the House of Monnet is renowned for. A delightful XO that strikes a perfect balance between structure, character and delicacy.

Maison Monnet takes pride in crafting Cognacs that can be likened to shining jewels, filled with brightness, polished to perfection and the result of both time and the hard work of man-kind. Passing down secular tradition, enriched through the years and through the different generations, the house of Monnet having been preserving history whilst breaking the boundaries of quality since 1838.

Presentation of the bottle

Burnished gold with highlights of shimmering red, Monnet XO showcases finesse from inside out. Dressed in a sleek and circular decanter, the presentation is finished with a yellow and black color scheme. A bold contrast of the colors allows the bottle to stand out on display with strength and elegance. With the design taking inspiration from the sun, the decanter represents the image of a flower in bloom under the sunlight. Filed with life and energy, XO Flamboyant is an ode to what Nature and Man can do when they work in harmony. Accompanied by an equally lavish box, in the matching color scheme, Monnet XO serves as the perfect gift to Cognac connoisseurs and enthusiasts.

How to enjoy

Unveiling a remarkable roundness and a lingering finish, this Cognac is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks. Pour into a tulip glass, leaving the Cognac to breathe for a few moments before the tasting. By tasting through a tulip glass, the aromas are permitted to evolve with utmost potential. Pair with a fine cigar to take the tasting to the next dimension.
