In a nutshell: A complex, rich and smooth single estate XO Cognac from a quality independent house.
The lowdown: This single estate XO comes from some of the best vineyards in the Fins Bois zone. The eaux-de-vie that goe into the blend are on average 20yrs old and the finished result is one where complex, nutty, butterscotch and floral aromas mix with a rich, smooth palate of dry fruits, nuts and vanilla followed by a very long and clean finish. An excellent XO from an qood quality house.
Cognac Leyrat is one of the main labels of Domaines Abécassis one of the largest independent Cognac producers situated to the south of Angouleme and who have an impressive 220 hectares of vines in the Fin Bois zone.
