Growth area & soil: Blend
Lheraud XO Charles VII Cognac is a beautiful multi-cru blend highlighted by its striking decanter, which exposes its rich color. Aged for 40 years, this quality blend offers extremely good value for money for such an old cognac. And, of course, there's the delicious taste of rancio that only appears after a truly long aging process.
A delight to all the senses: from the color that dances in front of the eyes, to the aromas and the palate, this is a cognac that takes the taster on a journey from beginning to end. Although many have yet to hear of the house of Lheraud Cognac, the expertise of the blenders dates back hundreds of years and has been passed down to family members through generations. One to savour - and a cognac that will appeal to any connoiseur.

It has a mix of younger and older tones. I find both fruity and floral tones, but also darker tones like...
Lheraud XO Charles VII Cognac
Tasted from a sample of the Advent Calendar: Deep golden-copper colour. The nose shows a lot of (slightly dirty) fruit notes, decaying flowers, toffee. On the palate really spicy, unbalanced, like a much younger cognac. The finish is medium to long sharp and spicy - not my cup of tea.
