Nose: Delicates notes of orange zest and nuts.

Palate: A greedy mouth with vanilla, cinnamon and brioche flavors. Long and soft aftertaste, slightly mentholated.

Vallein Tercinier Roots XO Cognac

A blend of the best eaux-de-vie selected from the Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Fins Bois crus, Vallein Tercinier Roots XO Cognac is a tribute to roots and ancestral tradition that surround the art of blending. Combining eaux-de-vie of various different ages and terroirs, the blend is at least 10 years old and contains some eaux-de-vie that spent even longer aging in oak casks. Not chill filtered, Roots XO boasts its natural amber color. Delicious notes of orange zest and nuts tantalize evoke temptation on the nose before aromas of vanilla, cinnamon and brioche immerse through the senses with a lingering minty finish.

The house of Vallein Tercinier are a proud family of cellar masters that have benefitted from five generations of wisdom, expertise and the all-important secrets behind producing some of the very best eaux-de-vie of the Champagne region.

Presentation of the bottle

Reflecting upon the theme of “roots”, the presentation features a golden illustration of a grounded vine and its sprawling branches. It is through the roots that the grapes are enriched with the nutrients and minerals required in order to produce the sweet nectar contained inside this contemporary bottle. Adding an air of sophistication, black and gold accents display the Cognac’s details in style. Housed in a curvaceous, wide-set bottle, this XO will sit beautifully in any spirit’s collection.

How to enjoy

As this is an old and mature Cognac - it is best enjoyed neat, at room temperature. However, for those who are open to a more adventurous tasting experience, the sweet and nutty notes and the long-lasting finish of this Cognac also pair perfectly with the right dessert. Serve with sweet creme brulee or a citrus fruit tart for a tasting experience of pure pleasure.
