From the grape varieties Ugni Blanc (80%), Colombard (15%) and Folle Blanche (5%) the sensual, soft Cognac XO from Cognac Bowen is distilled.
A dark amber shimmers in the glass with orange-red highlights. The rich, deep bouquet reveals wonderful floral aromas - from violets to iris and wisteria. This is joined by fruity notes of juicy apricot and prunes with subtle spicy hints. Very smooth and at the same time with powerful body and soft fullness, this French brandy presents itself to the palate. The aromas of the nose are also reflected and are complemented by dried fruits. The finish seduces with wonderful length and fine spice.
Vinification of Cognac Bowen XO
The grapes for this cognac are harvested very early and fermented to an acidic white wine. The acidity protects against oxidation, as cognac is not sulphurised. This base wine is now distilled twice in the copper kettle according to the traditional charentaiser distillation process. Wooden barrels from Limousin oak are chosen for the maturation. This cognac matures in these barrels for at least 18 to 20 years.
