Description

Details

Deliciously delicate cognac characterised by aromas of candied fruit and nuts with a rich and smooth palate of almonds, vanilla and stewed fruit. Blended from cognacs dating as far back as 1920. Truly stunning spirit that makes you sit back and melt into your long evening by the fire. MUCH older than your average XO which can be as little as 5 years old, and no colouring or caramel added.

Francis Abécassis is one of the largest vineyard owners, within the Cognac appellation, with 240 hectares of vines. Each estate, Leyrat in the Fins Bois Cru and Reviseur in the Petite Champagne Cru, lies on a site which is particularly well exposed to the sun and perfectly orientated, each with their own individual terroir. Both, however, have the chalky soil which is a key to producing elegant and subtle cognacs with great ageing potential. Leyrat Cognacs undergo a triple ageing process, spending 6 months ageing in new oak, and then finishing their ageing in 2 sets of used barrels to give a more delicate finish.
