The eaux-de-vie that make up Monnet XO prestige mainly come from Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne, the two most prestigious crus of the Cognac region, and they are elegantly complted by Fins Bois cru. Similar to the salamander, the eaux-de-vie of this XO have mastered the flames of the pot-still, to inherit mythical powers and exceptional qualities. They are then matured in oak casks in the Monnet cellars for substantially longer than legally required to obtain the XO appellation.
The colour is rich gold with red glints. The nose is a complex blend of marries liquorice, aromas of nuts and candied fruits. The taste has a roundness, finesse and exceptional length.
