Paul Gi­raud XO Grande Cham­pagne

VertdeVin - - Buying Guide -

Pre­mier Cru de Cognac

The nose is fruity, gour­mand, aro­matic, rich (but all in fi­nesse) and com­plexe. It re­veals notes of candied man­darin, apri­cot and more slightly of dried yel­low peach as­so­ci­ated with hints of caramel, candied lemon as well as a sub­tle/im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of licorice (in the back­ground), white flow­ers, woody hints and a very dis­creet hint of pâtis­series. The palate is fruity, very well-bal­anced, rel­a­tively fat, suave, el­e­gant, racy and of­fers a beau­ti­ful guide­line as well as a rich­ness (but full of fi­nesse). In the mouth this Cognac ex­presses slight notes of peach in syrup, candied lemon and slight notes of fresh apri­cot, white flow­ers as­so­ci­ated with a hint of ran­cio, cigare, spices and a sub­tle hint of caramel, pâtis­series as well as a very dis­creet hint of grilled oak and an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of gray pep­per. Good length and aro­matic per­sis­tence. The fin­ish is rel­a­tively pow­er­ful.
