DECROIX Cognac Vieille Reserve XO
Varieties: 90% Ugni Blanc, 10% Colombard
Soil: Clay and Limestone
Aging: 10 years in oak barrels
Notes: It is rare to encounter a Cognac maker with respect for nature like Jean-François Decroix. Since 1979, he's cultivated rich biodiversity on his estate, which truly depicts time and place. This careful cultivation necessitates little meddling in the fields, which he continues through into the cellar; employing spontaneous fermentation and aging in barrels crafted out of estate wood.
