One of the most coveted Cognac producers worldwide have become particularly famous for their exquisite spirit, the Courvoisier Extra Old Cognac. Widely recognized as one of the best XO Cognacs in the world, it is a truly complex structure of eaux-de-vie. Courvoisier have truly selected the finest eaux-de-vie from revered terroirs to create the Courvoisier XO. They have chosen the Grande and Petite Champagne to give the liquid elegance and deep flavors due to the chalkiness of the soil, and the smallest Borderies region due to its profound complexity and rarity. Find out more on our blog about why the inclusion of the Borderies cru is so highly desired in a fine Cognac. The result is a rich and rounded spirit; it is voluptuous and decadent with many layers to experience. As an Extra Old Cognac, it contains spirits between 11 and 25 years of age. The sixth Master Blender of the maison, Patrice Pinet, describes the spirit as his drink of choice should he have to choose one bottle to take to a desert island, and so we can trust that this award-winning classic is one to experience for yourself and with others. The complexity of this Cognac is what makes it stand out from the rest. Only master blenders of this caliber can successfully marry all of the eaux-de-vie from different areas to create a symphony of aromas.
