Jean Fillioux XO Cognac presented in a stunning Carafe
'So Elegantissime' is a top-quality, 100% Grande Champagne cognac produced by the same family for over 140 years. Beautifully presented in a decorative carafe, this Cognac is rich, flavoursome and elegant.
The Cognac is produced by Pascal J. Fillioux and his son, Christophe, and is of the XO quality. It exhibits a very floral nose, with spring flowers like hawthorn and wild roses as well as aromas of nectarine and white peach. Violet candy with a hint of sweetness. An aromatic palate with flavours of passion fruit and lemon pie accompanied by aromas of dried apricots. Sweet spice lingers on the finish.
Founded in 1880 by Honoré Fillioux, the company is now run by his great-grandson Pascal J. Fillioux. The vineyards lie in the heart of the Grande Champagne in the 'golden triangle': Verrières, Angeac-Champagne and Juillac-le-Coq. It is well known that this area yields the most delicate and finest Cognacs, and requires long oak barrel ageing to achieve maturity: the ageing is the key.
Nose: Very floral nose, spring flowers, hawthorn, wild rose, acacia, mixed with aromas of white peach and nectarine.
Palate: A touch of violet candy and buttery oak. Delicious liveliness on the palate with aromas of passion fruit, lemon pie, & dried apricot. A long finish with sweet spices.
