Description:

Type: Presented in a streamlined, elegant bottle, this very old reserve XO can lay claim to the Château appellation because it is made exclusively from grapes harvested, distilled, matured and bottled at Château Fontpinot in Charente.

Colour: Golden-orange autumn colours with warm highlights.

Bouquet: This XO cognac is the fruit of long ageing, mostly in dry cellars, which gives it a subtle, complex, refined, long-lasting bouquet consisting of candied fruit aromas, marzipan, hazelnut, nougat, then port notes and finally the famous rancio.

Palate: Balanced, rich and complex on the palate with aromas of dried fruits and candied fruits and an exceptionally long finish. Only a true gourmet will appreciate the Château Fontpinot XO to the full. This cognac enchants desserts with its fruity flavours and offers its character to anyone who enjoys the simple pleasures of a cheese board.

Tasting tip: add a drop of water to Château Fontpinot XO to let the aromas breathe and soften the power of the cognac. With a chocolate dessert, it reveals vanilla and woody flavours. With a dark chocolate macaroon, or accompanying a three-chocolate praline mousse, it will satisfy the most demanding gourmets. Combined with Mimolette, Parmesan, ewe’s milk cheese or blue cheese, it will surprise you with its long aromatic finish.
