As with Scotch, cognac must adhere to certain laws and regulations to deserve the label, and aging is based on the youngest cognac used in the blend. The ingredients used must be white wine grapes from a specific growing region, so be mindful of this requirement when you buy cognac. As with other brandy variations, the wine used is high in acidity but perfect for distilling repeatedly and aging for long periods. Cognac must be distilled twice in copper stills and matured in oak casks for a minimum of two years. Many are aged longer to bring out more complex flavors and intensity. Check the grade of your cognac purchase. The longer the aging process, the higher the grade. Choose the right grade for you based on aromas, flavor profile and price point.

Although we would never presume to tell you how to do your drinking, cognac is best enjoyed neat. A slight mixer or a bit of water is not unheard of, but be careful not to disturb the quality of a good cognac. If you're adding water to an XO (high quality, extra old) cognac, it might as well be the tears of a connoisseur weeping over the tragedy. Wine Chateau has a superior selection of XO cognac for sale for those hunting for premium quality. We recommend sipping this strong-bodied spirit to appreciate its full complexity. You may note the fruitiness in its profile as well as its warmth.
