Francois Voyer XO Gold 20-30 years Grande Champagne Cognac Carafe 40% 700ml
$281.00
A rich, full of rancio, grape-to-bottle Cognac. The XO Gold is called as such because it only received gold medals in every single competition it entered. Minimum 20 years old, all the way to 30 years old. This cognac provides access to a single vineyard, quality “XO”, very different from the blends of the bigger brands. A very special drink to keep the night going with family and friends. Tasting Notes: Nose: Down among the flowers: touches of jasmine, clove, combined with peach and plums. The old maturation of this Cognac has given it its vanilla aroma and this light and sweet aroma that only an old Cognac has. Palate: The outstanding point is probably the great elegance which is one of the major characteristics of the Premier Cru Grande Champagne, fully represented here by the delicacy of aromas as well as the subtlety of its palate.

Chapoutier Marc Egrappe 20 years Cotes du Rhone 43% 700ml
$136.00
After maceration is completed, the marcs are pressed and conserved ready for distillation. We carry out our own traditional distillation using a hundred-year-old copper column still. A single batch distillation process is used to preserve the aromatic authenticity of the different Rhône Valley terroirs. The eau-de-vie (70% alc.Vol.) is then aged for 15 to 20 years in 228 litre barrels (pièces) and 600 litre barrels (demi-muids) made of fine-grained French oak which previously held our finest red and white wines. This ageing adds empyreumatic, spice and undergrowth notes to the elegant, fruity bouquet and the liquid takes on an intense golden colour with copper tints. On the palate, the fiery character gradually gives over to softness. Over the years, the gradual evaporation of the alcohol (the “angels’ shar”) results in a natural reduction of the alcohol to between 40 and 45% alc.Vol. This Marc Egrappé is a blend of eaux-de-vie de marc from our terroirs in the Northern and Southern Rhône Valley: Hermitage, Côte-Rôtie, Châteauneuf-du-Pape...

Dos Cortados Palo Sherry Aperitif 20 years 21.5% 500ml
$90.00
Definition: In EEC terms, Quality Liquor Wine Produced in a Specific Region, (VLCPRD, CE Nº 479/2008 Del Consejo de 29 de Abril de 2008); in Spain, fortified wine with the Quality Demarcation Jerez – Xérès – Sherry and indication of age: VOS (Very Old Sherry), 20 years old. A fortified wine, this rare and peculiar Palo Cortado is halfway between an amontillado and an oloroso. Type of grape: Palomino Vineyards: Jerez Superior, Pago Balbaína Alcohol content: 21,5% Alc. /Vol. Type of grape: Palo Cortado Sherry Sugar content: Dry, less than 6 gr./l, obtained from the concentration of residues through evaporation Production: Bud musts from our best vineyards. Cold, still decanting and fermentation at 22º C. Early filtration, classification by quality and then the must is fortified at 15º with the best distilled wines to obtain the traditional racks. Put into the Criaderas y Soleras system in our fino sherry casks for biological ageing. Sporadically, circumstances cause the contents of some casks to behave differently than is hoped – they will not become fino sherry. These casks are “cut” (hence the term “cortado”) with one or two jugs of alcohol to form the base of the palo cortado solera system. The wine is then aged for 20 years until it reaches the solera. Tasting notes: Bright hues of very old gold and amber. Pungent, intense and complex on the nose, with a subtle note of filberts and dried fruits. Dry, with excellent acidity; a long, full-bodied and elegant palate. An incredibly expressive and unforgettable finish. Sherry with an amontillado nose and an oloroso palate. Suggestions for consumption: Excellent as an aperitif for those long evenings or in short drinks.
