Cognac François Voyer - XO Gold
Since its arrival in 2007, XO Gold has never stopped seducing Cognac lovers.
Made from Ugni blanc, XO Gold is a blend of 10 to 30 year old eaux-de-vie. The floral notes of the youngest ones fade away, giving way to stronger flavors of dried fruits, candied fruits and spices. Vanilla, cinnamon, ginger and pepper are evoked. After this first burst, woody notes appear, characteristic of the aging in oak barrels. With some attention, one can find surprising perfumes, such as notes of passion fruit.
On the palate, the movement oscillates between power and smoothness. This Cognac displays all the nobility and vigor of its Grande Champagne origins, while its advanced age allows it to offer its palette of aromas with delicacy.

The François Voyer family home - and its 28 hectares of vineyards - is located in Grande Champagne, near Verrières. Since 1870, more than 5 generations have been distilling the estate's wines in just two stills (compared to up to 50 in larger distilleries). Their bottles can be found in the best restaurants in France: Ducasse, Lucas Carton, Laurent and many others. The Cellar Master Pierre Vaudon ensures the quality of the blends.
