Leopold Raffin Coganc XO Meursault Finish

Leopold Raffin started making cognac in 1889, but it is unfortunate that we have heard that they have gone bankrupt and are no longer producing. We have some left of this amazing Cognac.

Leopold Raffin Coganc XO Meursault Finish....$79.99
Was $129.99 - we bought the last 15 bottles on closeout.  No longer being made.
Bottled in 2015
A blend of 30 cognacs from the finest crus comprise the fabric of our XO. It spends at least a decade in Limousine oak and is marked by a bouquet of caramelized peach, toasted almonds and candied fruit with spices, vanilla, chocolate and baked apple showing on the palate. Our XO then spends a final 6 months in a Meursault cask a vessel that has aged sweet Meursault wines produced from the Chardonnay Beaune Subregion of the Burgundy area. This second wood finish adds rich spicy flavours, toasted almonds, layers with a richness of creamy toffee notes and traces of oak and depp vanilla.
