Courvoisier XO Cognac
About Courvoisier XO Cognac
Regarded as a symbol of luxury and refinement, Courvoisier XO Cognac holds a prestigious place in the world of spirits. Its legacy stretches back to the early 19th century with Emmanuel Courvoisier and Louis Gallois. The brand's enduring reputation is firmly based on its commitment to quality, tradition, and sophistication. Notably, Courvoisier was the preferred cognac of Napoleon Bonaparte, which led to its emblematic title as the 'Cognac of Napoleon'. Courvoisier XO, or Extra Old, represents the brand’s utmost expression of craftsmanship. With a blend of beautifully aged eaux-de-vie from the prestigious Grande and Petite Champagne regions, Courvoisier XO stands tall in its category. This stylish cognac is a showcase of exquisite balance, depth, and versatility.
The sensory journey of Courvoisier XO begins with its aroma, offering ripe fruit, caramel, and honey tinged with subtle oakiness. The first sip greets the palate with a harmonious interplay of flavors. Robust currents of crème brûlée, orange zest, and exotic spice interweave beautifully with the softer undertones of milk chocolate and blooming roses. The finish of Courvoisier XO is warm, spicy mocha and toasted almond notes, making each sip a captivating experience.

Courvoisier XO's production is as meticulous as it is intriguing. The process begins with the meticulous selection of ugni blanc grapes from the finest vineyards in the Grande and Petite Champagne crus. After double-distillation in copper stills, the resulting eaux-de-vie are aged for up to 35 years in French Limousin oak barrels. This long maturation process allows the cognac to develop its multi-layered complexity and signature smoothness. Courvoisier prides itself on its 'cruisability', a term coined by the house to describe the unique interplay between the time, terroir and craftsmanship, all crucial elements in creating Courvoisier XO Cognac.
