Maison Gautier – XO – Cognac

Maison Gautier – XO – Cognac

The nose is aromatic, fruity, gourmand, round, elegant and well defined. It reveals notes of ripe peach, quince and small notes of candied orange associated with small notes of dried zests / citrus, white flowers as well as slight notes of citron, cedar, and discreet hints of rosewood, rancio (in the background) and almond (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful finesse, a slight juiciness, a beautiful definition / expression as well as a beautiful guideline. On the palate, this Cognac expresses notes of crystallized lemon, crystallized mandarin and slight notes of quince, cedar, dried zests associated with a touch of rosewood, rancio, almond, a very discreet grilled hint, vanilla as well as an imperceptible touch of coffee and gray pepper (in the background). A beautiful Cognac!
