This is 100% Grande Champagne, about 25 years old, blended from Surrenne’s Madame, Figon, Brunetiere, and Moreau cellars. Classically delicate XO from Cognac’s premier region, with plenty of the region’s depth and finish.The Grande Champagne district is gently hilly, and the soils are rich in porous chalk; the rainfall is less than in other districts, which creates deeper flavor in the grapes. Grande Champagne cognacs require lengthy aging due to the huge percentage of limestone in the soils. In return, they slowly yield an unequaled delicacy, perfume, and finesse, with unrivaled length—persistence of both aroma and taste.
