Opulent Taste

Elegance, style, sophistication

In a remote western corner of France lies one of nature’s most tantalising marvels: Petite and Grand Champagne enjoys valleys with rich terroir and a perfectly cool climate.

Opulent Taste

It is a place renowned for producing the world’s finest grapes – Ugni Blanc, which are hand-selected for only the best cognacs.

This is where Richelieu XO Cognac is born.

Steeped in the French tradition of copper potstill distillation, The House of Richelieu’s XO Cognac is matured over time in French Oak. Finely blended, the result is an amber glow reward, with intricate fruit aromas, honeysuckle, vanilla, cocoa and delicate wood on the nose, offering an exquisite taste which is round, full-bodied and supple on the palate, with an unmistakably smooth and lingering finish.

For these reasons, this luxury Cognac has been recognised by the International Wine and Spirit Competition as The World’s Best Cognac for 2013. This is a coveted and prized title, bestowed on only the finest spirits by an esteemed panel of international judges and connoisseurs.
