About the Cognac
LOT n°53 XO PERFECTION is a blend of our most sublime stocks of Grande Champagne cognac. It has a sumptuous topaz colour with a bouquet of plums, figs, and chocolate on the palate. This cognac borders on perfection, finesse and complexity complemented by a refreshing lift on the finish.
GRAPE VARIETALS Ugni Blanc and Colombard
APPELLATION Grande Champagne
AGED More than two generations in Limousin oak casks
THE COLOUR Splendid mahogany
THE NOSE The wonderful, heady aromatic tang, borne of long wood ageing is immediately compelling. This gives way to hints of wood, dried fruits & tobacco - very rich and generous.
THE PALATE An extremely appetising cognac, opulent, rounded and yet vivacious. Pepper & spices emerge initially before revealing dark chocolate and fresh herbs. Complex, it shows supreme finesse, supple opulence and very good length.

ROBERT PARKER.com - Hedonist’s gazette : « The LOT 53 is pure silk, which at this alcohol level is very dangerous indeed. The complex aromatics can fill a room. » 98 points
