Presentation of the bottle
Housed in a beautiful round decanter, the light reddish brown, with golden highlights allows this Cognac to stand out from the rest. Embellished with a luxury gold bottle stopper, the presentation of XXO is somewhat ressemblant of a stylish perfume bottle. Arriving with an equally lavished wooden box, this Cognac makes a stunning gift for someone who revels in life's luxuries.
How to enjoy
A well-aged Cognac like De Charville XXO deserves your utmost attention and enjoyment when tasting. Pour into a tulip glass as the long neck of this type of glass will allow the patchwork of aromas to develop beautifully in the glass. Allow the Cognac to breathe in the glass for up to 10 minutes before tasting. Drinking it neat is advised, however adding a few ice cubes allows you to alter the tasting experience slightly. Sip and savour down to every last drop, as after spending more than 30 years in French oak barrels, this Hors d’Age is worthy of lengthy and long-lasting enjoyment too.
