Description

Normandin Mercier XO Grande Champagne

The Normandin Mercier XO Magnum is an well-aged Grande Champagne Cognac of the Extra Old age variety. Hailing from the highly coveted terroir, this blend of eaux-de-vie has been carefully matured for decades. Tasters of the XO Magnum Cognac will be transported on a rich journey of the senses, with a blend that it generous and complex.

The notes of rancio that come with a fine Grande Champagne are carefully mastered, and only show themselves after many years of maturation. Having been aged in red Limousin casks, and descending from an area of Cognac that is renowned for its chalky, porous soil, its voluptuously soft character is given a wonderful strength.

You will experience it all - the amber colors, the delicious bouquet on the nostrils, a complexity on the palate and a lengthy finish that only comes from the Premier Cru. It will remind you exactly why the Grande Champagne has such a fine reputation for producing Cognacs that are a cut above.

Normandin Mercier is a maison that has developed a stellar reputation thanks to the finesse of its Grande and Petite Champagne Cognacs, but also their loyalty to traditional methods. These include non-chill filtering, no added hue, and respect of the manual work that goes into their production.

How to enjoy Normandin Mercier Extra Old Magnum

The Normandin Mercier XO Magnum Cognac can be enjoyed by both the connoisseur, and those that are dipping their toes into the delights of this luxurious spirit. Enjoy it after dessert, a coffee, or a cigar as an extra indulgence in a tulip glass.
