The Cognac XO Impérial by Cognac Chabasse is an outstanding top brandy that combines the Ugni Blanc, Colombard and Folle Blanche grape varieties.A
brilliant amber with golden brown shades shimmers in the glass of this cognac. The expressive bouquet is beautifully drawn by the long barrel maturity. In addition to the vanilla aromas and notes of oak wort, fine hints of dried fruits emerge. On the palate, this French brandy convinces with a dense, supple body that harmonizes wonderfully with the aromas of the nose. The extraordinary abundance is due to the long timber expansion. The long finale comes with hints of vanilla.
Vinification of the Chabasse Cognac XO Impérial
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 in it for 40 to 50 years.
