BACHE GABRIELSEN XO COGNAC NATUR & ELEGANSE
“Nice nutty aromas countered with subtle notes of tropical fruit. Palate entry features roasted tastes of toasted wheat bread, buttered almonds, nougat and sweet oak. Concludes with a bit of tobacco leaf, prune, fig and honey. Lithe, nutty and delicious.” Wine Enthusiast 90-95 Points
Bache Gabrielsen Cognac XO Natur & Eleganse is a blend of eaux de vie produced without the traditional permitted additives, with Ugni Blanc grapes from the Fin Bois (60%) Grande Champagne (25%) and Petite Champagne (28%) crus (cru is French term for growth zones) of France. These crus are highly-prized for their chalky, rich soil which are ideal for the production of grapes used to make the cognac. Once the grapes from these crus are harvested, they are pressed and the remaining grape juice is fermented in stainless steel fermentation tanks. The resultant eaux de vie is then distilled twice through a traditional, alambic Charentais still.
Bache-Gabrielsen’s Cognacs are produced in a modern, light, fresh style, its richly fruited notes are deeply reminiscent of rustic life in Cognac.
Elegant and complex, Natur & Eleganse is aged in Limousin oak casks for over 10 years.
