Selection Olivier Blanc S.O.B. XO Artisanal Domaine Chainier Grande Champagne Cognac
Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
The S.O.B. XO Artisnal Domaine Chainier Grande Champagne Cognac is a real sensory treat! From the moment you set eyes on its warm amber robe you'll be entranced. On the nose it explodes with notes of iris, nuts, plum, and vanilla, and the journey only continues to get better as you take a sip.
The Cognac is part of an exclusive group known as S.O.B, or Selection Olivier Blanc. This world renowned Cognac expert has put together a small, very select group of artisanal houses that showcase the very best that hands-on Cognac production has to offer. If you're keen to enjoy a Grande Champagne XO Cognac that's as far away from mass production as you can get, then this should be at the top of your wish list.
really nice, but SOB's Fillioux is better I think
while the nose is a bit flat.. that palate is amazing. Typical grand champagne soil I guess. Unfortunately the finish is a bit rough for my taste. Still, very good value for money compared to other cognacs..
