Meukow XO

Meukow XO

Assemblage

The story began with Auguste-Christophe and Gustav Meukow, 2 brothers from Silesia, who were sent to France in 1862 by czar Alexander II to buy Cognac. They never returned and started their own trading house in the west of the Cognac region. Meukow still buys high quality Cognac and bottles it in their characteristic bottles with panther. This XO assembly contains only Grande Champagne Cognac and is very soft, fruity with many deep aromas such as coffee, leather and tobacco.

Chateau Montifaud - XO

Chateau Montifaud - XO

Petite Champagne

Only 13 Cogac houses may bear the name 'Chateau'. Château Montifaud, originally located in the Petit Champagne, had been owned by the Vallet family since 1866 and, despite the fact that the chateau itself was bombed down in 1944, Montifaud, with 120 hectares of vineyards in the Petit Champagne and 5 in the Grande Champagne, is still entitled to use the term' Chateau'. Despite the legal minimum of 6 years, this XO is 30 years old and made from grapes from the Petit Champagne.

Pierre Vallet XO

Pierre Vallet XO

Assemblage

Pierre Vallet is the great-grandfather of Laurent Vallet, the sixth generation Vallet and the owners of Montifaud. On their Chateau they do everything themselves; grow the grapes, make wine and distill in their traditional Alambic Charentais. The Eau de Vie is matured in barrels of French Limousin oak and bottled in-house. Pierre Vallet differs from its own Montifaud Cognac, because with this Cognac also grapes from the grande Champagne are used. This XO is at least 24 years old.

Giboin XO Royal

Giboin XO Royal

Borderie

The François Giboin Domaine is located in the Borderie, the smallest Cru of the Cognac area. Started in 1830, one still makes traditional Borderie Cognac here. The clay subsoil makes the Cognacs from this region a bit rustic and sturdier. The XO Royal is an assembly of various ages from the cellars of Giboin. The accent is Cognac from the seventies, mixed with slightly younger Cognacs. The XO has rich floral notes, leather, tobacco, nuts and dried fruit.

Jean Fillioux Napoléon

Jean Fillioux Napoléon

Grande Champagne

La Pouyade, the Domaine Jean Fillioux, and 63 acres large, is located in the Grande Champagne. Started in 1880, this Cognac house still makes their own unique style of Cognac. The fifth generation, Christophe Fillioux, does not make any concessions whatsoever to the style of his great-grandfather Honoré Fillioux. 'Napoléon' - the same as XO-, must be at least 6 years old. However, this Napoleon matured for 10 years on French Limousin oak. The Cognac is spicy, has notes of herbs, walnut, marzipan and dried fruit.

Chateau Montifaud Michel Vallet, 15 Y

Chateau Montifaud Michel Vallet, 15 Y

Petite Champagne

Michel Vallet is the 5th generation of the owners of Chateau Montifaud. Within the family, the tradition is that each new generation makes its own assembly of the best barrels from their cellars. Searching for balance between fruit and oak, Michel chose barrels of at least 15 years old with solely Petit Champagne Cognac. The Cognac has many fruity tones, but also clear influences of the French Limousin oak. Vanilla, dried plum and herbs are well recognized.

Giboin Millesime 1994

Giboin Millesime 1994

Borderie

Just like his ancestors since 1830, François Giboin chooses quality. The Giboin Domaine is located in the Borderie, the smallest Cru of the Cognac area. Only a few Cognac makers release a 'Millesime', because the legal inspection on years is strictly regulated by law; only bottles with Cognac from barrels sealed by the BNIC may be marked with year mark. Giboin has only 2 barrels sealed per year. The Cognac is beautifully sturdy, with many aromas of herbs and fruits.

Martell XO

Martell XO

Assemblage

Of the oldest of the famous Cognac trading houses, this is an assembly of Cognac from the Grande Champagne and Borderie. Honorary to the founder, the Englishman Jean Martell, who came to France in 1715 and started trading in Cognac. Besides the Grande Champagne, which gives the Cognac a lot of softness, Martell likes to use Borderie Cognac in their assemblages, which gives a lot of strength and body. The XO is a wonderful example of this. A subtle blend of fruits, herbs and nuts.
