No tasting notes available as it is available in artisanal quantities, but this Cognac is sure to exhibit all the finest elements of the Premier Cru including the light, floral nose, lengthy finish and everlasting rancio.

Description

Cravache d'Or XO bottled at cask strength 

The Navarre Cravache d’Or XO Cognac is something quite extraordinary. A blend of eaux-de-vie from the prestigious Premier Cru aged for an average of 20 years, it has undergone a particular process unlike most Cognacs: that is non-chill filtered, nor colored or boiséd. It is as it is, straight from the cask.

Made with 100% Ugni Blanc grapes, Navarre Cognac is one of the last artisans of his kind. Jacky Navarre is a fourth generation distiller, and grows grapes on his eleven-acre estate in Gondeville. He is a master of distillation, and uses no water - he simply allows his Cognacs to reduce by natural evaporation.

This Cravache d’Or comes from the Grande Champagne, and has been distilled in his 30hl Charentais pot still. It is artisanal craft at its finest. Navarre is one of the last purists of his kind, and the barrels are oxidized by the humidity of his cellar alone. Allowing nature to do the work, he produces Cognacs such as the Cravache D’Or with an incredible depth of aroma and endless length on the palate.

Presentation of the bottle

Bottled at its natural cask strength, which is 45% ABV. The bottle is delightful, with an illustration of the Gondeville estate. Artisanal in every way.

How to enjoy

If you’ve never tasted a Cognac before that has been bottled at cask strength, we wholly recommend that you give it the full tasting experience - that is neat and in a snifter glass at room temperature. Experiment and also try it over ice.

About Navarre Cognac

You could consider Jacky Navarre, fourth generation distiller of Cognac Navarre, to be one of the last remaining “purists” of his kind. Distilling from the eleven-acre estate in Gondeville of the Grande Champagne, he hand-harvests his fruit - a true artisanal method that is nowadays rare to find. This ancient Cognac house crafts truly traditional Cognac, with an average of 40-50 years for one blend alone. Amazingly, the Cognacs that emerge from this house have no water added - the barrels are oxidized over a long period by the humidity of the cellar alone. The result is a Cognac of unrivaled quality, aroma and depth. His rule is simple - “let nature do most of the work” and the rest will come.
