Description

The Cognac XO Richard Delisle Grande Champagne Cognac comes exclusively from the Premier Cru of the Cognac appellation - famous for its chalky soil content, which serves spectacularly when cultivating the very best grapes for fine wines and Cognacs alike. Therefore, it goes without saying that the Richard Delisle XO Grande Champagne blend should be credited for its extreme finesse and exceptional quality as an award-winning blend of extra old eaux-de-vie. Offering warm fruity aromas with spicy hints of cinnamon, oak, caramel and cocoa - the Cognac speaks for itself and leaves an excellent length in the mouth upon sipping. This XO Cognac should be shared with those who enjoy the finer things in life as it truly is a blend of eaux-de-vie that will be appreciated by not just Cognac connoisseurs but by those who are new to the world of Cognac too.

From father to son, the house of Richard Delisle has found a haven in the heart of Charente for seven generations. Stretching over three towns of the prestigious Petite Champagne region and Fins Bois regions, Maison Richard Delisle exclusively grows Ugni-Blanc grapes. The chalky soils and sunny growing conditions give the eau-de-vie its smooth aromatic qualities. With 15 alembic copper stills at the estate’s distillery and each generation contributing to the growth and development of the brand, the house is easily one of the most reputable in the region.

Presentation of the bottle

With its heavy glass design work and golden embellishment - the presentation of the XO Cognac could be mistaken for a large perfume of cologne bottle. As a result, the bottle is ambiguously feminine (perhaps to attract female drinkers) as it embodies glamour and expensive taste - making the perfect gift to yourself or someone special.

How to enjoy

With its round and fruity nose and spicy palate, try XO Cognac over ice or topped up with chilled tonic water in a wider balloon glass. The house of Richard Delisle suggests serving it neat and pairing it with a square of chocolate or a coffee.
