Maxime Trijol - XO Grande Champagne DecanterCognac
Deep gold in colour, with a full -bodied nose of aromatic richness and hints of liquorice and touches of vanilla and cedar wood. Full in the mouth, mellow and opulent with notes of dried fruit, spicy oak and a little rancio creeping in. Good length on the palate with a very smooth, layered finish.
Jean-Jacques Trijol blends various ages to create batches, which are then combined to make differing qualities. For example, the vitality of a 10 - 15 year old batch is aided by the maturity of the 30 - 40 year old cognacs, and conversely, the older blends are refreshed with the younger blends to lift the palate and add a dash of zest.
