Mestreau XO N°28

The house of Frédéric Mestreau was first founded in 1808, and produced Cognac until 1919. Almost a century later, Guilhem Grosperrin was presented with the opportunity to purchase 250 bottles of early 19th century Cognacs from the personal collection of Abel Mestreau, and, with permission, he resurrected the brand. Mestreau XO N°28 is made using grapes from Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne, considered to be the two most prestigious regions of Cognac. Our panel hailed it “a very fine XO – great for sipping”, identifying notes of mango, leather and polished wood.
Price: around £80
Producer: La Gabare SA
