Description

The Normandin Mercier Grande Champagne XO Cognac is a premier cru blend of eaux-de-vie that have been aged for decades.  It boasts the delightful notes of rancio that are only present after many years of aging.  This is a cognac that takes the taster on a journey of the senses - from it's delightful amber highlights to delicious aromas, to complexity on the palate, and a wonderfully satisfying length of finish.

All in all, this is a cognac that represents exactly why cognacs from the Grande Champagne region are deserving of their '1er cru' status.  Recommended for both the cognac connoisseur and those new to the delights of the spirit.
