Cognacs: " Le Monde" selection
THE WORLD GOES TO THE TABLE - WINE & SPIRITS SECTION - By Laure Gasparotto
Coutanseaux Aîné, XO, premier cru Grande Champagne
As this very chic house only produces cognacs from Grande Champagne, the heart of the appellation, this XO is necessarily one of them. Then, thanks to an original know-how, distillation on lees and storage in semi-buried barrels for at least fifteen years in particular, the spirit of this cognac quickly reveals itself to be bewitching and elegant. Between iodine, smoky and controlled power, this is a terroir elixir of great class.
