Raison Personnelle XO 4.0 Grande Champagne Cognac
Raison Personnelle XO 4.0 Grande Champagne Cognac is a limited edition blend that embodies utmost finesse and esteemed quality. Produced exclusively from grapes selected from the premier cru, the eaux-de-vie were then distilled over a wood fire (in the years 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006) and aged for at least 10 years before its aromas were ready for bottling.
Spread across 20 hectares of land, surrounding the steeple of Angeac Champagne in Grande Champagne, exclusively planted with Ugni-Blanc - Maison Raison Personnelle is a family business that pays homage to its historical roots while modernising in accordance with the changing values and expectations of current agriculture and distillation methods.
Presentation of the bottle
Dressed in a contemporary decanter that showcases the Cognac’s vibrant amber coloring, this Cognac is presented in a unique bottle that is sure to stand out amongst other bottles on the spirits shelf. The bottle’s illustration, in particular, is what sets it apart from other Cognacs of its category as an eye-catching illustration of the steeple of Angeac Champagne (located in the village where the grapes used to create this Cognac were grown). In doing so, it reminds consumers of where this Cognac comes from, paying tribute to its origins and history.
How to enjoy
XO Cognac of any kind should be enjoyed neat at room temperature. While savoring this Cognac in its purest form is advised, it can also be appreciated on the rocks or with a dash of mineral water. Serve this expression at the end of a meal as a digestive as a pleasurable nightcap alongside a fine cigar of your choice.
About Raison Personelle Cognac
Combining modern charm with age-old production methods, Raison Personelle is a Cognac that was created from scratch by Sabine and Bertrand de Witasse, a pair of winemakers residing in the Charente region. With two copper stills - one of which is wood-fired - they distil eaux-de-vie which they age for nearly two decades before bottling. They only release one cask at a time, resulting in an output of fewer than 500 bottles a year. Labelled by hand, each bottle of Raison Personelle Cognac is a true labor of love, evidence that hard work really does pay off.
