Raison Personnelle 5.0 Grande Champagne Cognac

Unveil the complexity and elegance of Raison Personnelle 5.0 Grande Champagne Cognac, a meticulously crafted blend from the esteemed Grande Champagne cru. This old XO cognac, set for bottling on May 1, 2024, combines vintages from 2005, 2006, 2010, and 2011, distilled via the traditional method of double distillation over wood fire, capturing the essence of its historic terroir.

With only 687 bottles produced, each exemplifies the craftsmanship and unique character of Grande Champagne. At 40% ABV, it offers a robust yet balanced profile, making each sip a memorable experience. The presentation of tangy candy and spicy notes followed by a licorice-fresh finish ensures a sophisticated tasting journey.

Presentation of the Bottle

It has a clear, squared-off shape that showcases the deep amber color of the Cognac. The label is bold and contemporary, with a vibrant orange background that contrasts nicely with the Cognac's hue. The front of the bottle prominently displays the name "Raison Personnelle" above the expression "5.0" and the designation "Cognac Grande Champagne Contrôlée," indicating its high-quality appellation.

The label design includes a minimalistic illustration of a traditional Cognac house with grapevines, done in a white line art style that stands out against the orange. The cap is made of natural wood, enhancing the artisanal and premium look of the bottle.

How to Drink

This exquisite Cognac is best savored neat, allowing the connoisseur to appreciate its complex flavor spectrum fully. It is particularly suited for a reflective after-dinner experience or as a distinguished accompaniment to a gourmet meal.

About Raison Personnelle Cognac

Combining modern charm with age-old production methods, Raison Personnelle 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.

Visit Raison Personnelle: By request, the distillery can book in personalised visits to their Cognac house and vineyard.
