Cognac Pierre Lecat - Mémoire XO
Aged over 20 years, this Cognac Mémoire XO offers delicate floral scents of jasmine and honeysuckle, along with a discreet touch of port and walnut and notes of vanilla, wood and chocolate. They are accompanied by aromas of spices (curry, saffron) as well as candied fruits (orange, pear, apricot). The velvety and warm palate shows a perfect harmony of flavors and aromas, with a great concentration and a long finish.
The Pierre Lecat house was created in the mid 1950’s, when the grandfather of the current co-owner Jean-Luc Lassoudière returned to the Charente to rebuild the family farm and replant vines. Pierre Lecat, Jean-Luc Lassoudière's father-in-law and a renowned watchmaker in the region, was both the inspiration for the House and its benefactor in times of need.
The vineyard, located in Fins Bois, covers 25 hectares, of which 20 hectares are dedicated to the production of Cognac brandy. The Ugni blanc constitutes today more than 90% of the vines, the Colombard and the Folle Blanche completing it.
