sensual, soft Cognac XO from Cognac Bowen is distilled from the grape varieties Ugni Blanc (80%), Colombard (15%) and Folle Blanche (5%).
In the glass, a dark amber shimmers with orange-red highlights in this wine brand. The lush, deep bouquet reveals wonderfully floral aromas - from violets to iris and glycinia. This is accompanied by fruity notes of juicy apricot and baking plums with subtly spicy notes. Very gentle and at the same time with a powerful body and soft fullness, this French brandy presents itself to the palate. The aromas of the nose are also reflected and are supplemented with dried fruits. The finale seduces with wonderful length and fine spice.Vinification of the Cognac
Bowen XO The grapes for this cognac are harvested very early and fermented
to a strong acidic white wine. The acid protects against oxidation as cognac is not sulphurized. This base wine is now distilled twice in a copper burner using the traditional Charentaiser distillation process. Wooden barrels made of limousine oak are selected for maturation. This cognac matures for at least 18 to 20 years.
