Lheraud - L'oublie XO,

Domaine Lheraud


Tasting note:

L’Oublié’ or the ‘Forgotten’ XO of the Lheraud Paradis cellar is one to savor, as it is produced with a mastery of both traditional and modern Cognac production methods - and for this bottle in particular.

Aged for at least 10 years in oak casks, we suspect that given the age of some of their Cognacs, it has been aged for far longer - and the design of the bottle is reminiscent of a style from decades ago.

Lheraud are masters of many different terroirs, but ultimately, they are a traditional Cognac house whose methods extend back for hundreds of years. Today’s owners, André and Guy Leheraud work tirelessly to help their heritage endure into the future.

We like to think that this very elegant XO was stumbled upon by chance, after having delved deep into their chai. Expect a multifaceted bouquet with a roasted hint of cacao and spice on the nose, which transforms into a velvety, vanilla delight on the palate. The maturity in the mouth suggests that this is a very well aged Cognac indeed.
