Renier Cognac XO 25yrs Grande Champagne 40% 700ml
This XO Cognac over 25 years old comes from our property of Grande Champagne First Cru and was aged in the dampness of our cellars nearby the Charente River. Amber coloured and maintaining a perfect balance between the finesse of the alcohol, the fruity aromas and the wood taste from the oak cask. Here is an ideal compromise expressed through floral and spicy hints with a touch of strength, thus creating a very subtle harmony. Grape variety Ugni Blanc: green grapes bringing structure and acidity, with naturally preserving qualities. These vineyards about 25-years old are situated around Gondeville. The clay and chalk soil is another advantage for the quality of these vines and the COGNAC to come. Ingredients: First Cru Cognac, distilled water, possible traces of caramel, sugar and wood taste. Distilled in our Charentais Still: Distillation of clear wine with the lees in order to foster the improvement of the coming old Cognac because it develops roundness and subtlety.
The cognac house of Charpentron is a traditional and family one, and has been passed down the line from father to son, mother to daughter, for ten generations. The estate, known as Clos de Merienne, covers 178 acres of prime Grande Champagne countryside, with 74 acres of these covering the hills around the estate as vineyards. With such a long history, it’s perhaps no surprise that the cellars of Charpentron boast some very old cognacs, some of which are 100 years of age or more.
