Naulin XO Fine Cognac: the Taste of Tradition
Aged for a minimum of ten years in the finest Limousin oak barrels, Naulin XO Fine Cognac celebrates the finesse that can only be found in a Fine Champagne blend. Incorporating eaux-de-vie distilled exclusively from Ugni Blanc grapes harvested in the Petite and Grande Champagne terroirs, the Naulin XO Fine Cognac certainly displays all the hallmarks of a high-quality Cognac.
Finding a balance between traditional technique and modern style, this Extra Old Fine Cognac is an excellent representation of why Naulin has become one of the largest family-run vineyards in Cognac. Both generous and uncomplicated, the aromatic profiles found in this expression are thanks to the meticulous work of the Boinaud family, whose precise production methods demonstrate a high level of dedication and integrity in every product they distill, age and blend on-site.
To date, a staggering 24 generations of this family have been involved in Cognac production, with invaluable ancestral expertise being at the heart of the estate's ethos. Founded in 1879, Naulin Cognac tantalize the taste buds with, what they call, "the taste of tradition".
The refined flavors found in the Naulin XO Fine Cognac only serve to reinforce the superior standard of both its Fine Champagne provenance and maturation process. Distinct floral notes of rose, which are typical of Grande Champagne, are paired with deep aromas of warming spices and old port on the palate - flavors that can only be achieved through a masterful maturation process.
