D'Aincourt Extra is just that… extra old, extra rare, extra flavorful, extra fine… extra everything! 

D’Aincourt is an art of excellence. Their Cognacs are sourced exclusively from Grande Champagne: premier Cru of Cognac, where the finest eaux-de-vie come from. D’Aincourt Master Blender then carefully selects and subtly unites our oldest and rarest eaux-de-vie, thereby revealing the aromatic harmony of the prestigious collection of D’AINCOURT Cognacs.

D'Aincourt is dedicated to the nobility, loyalty and strength demonstrated by French Empire generals, particularly their forefather, the Marquis de Caulaincourt. Even D’Aincourt decanters are a reinterpretation of the original shape of Cognac decanters during the French Empire. They were created by well-known designer Patrick Norguet and are produced in France by a luxury glass maker.

These are the oldest and finest Cognacs D’Aincourt has to offer… and that is saying something. D’Aincourt Extra Cognac is a harmony of 12 French beauties — Gand Champaign cru eaux-de-vie aged 25 to 70 years in those seasoned, French Limousin oak casks. Each sip inspires quiet contemplation, like a gentle snow fall in a majestic forest… quiet, serene, silky smooth, awe-inspiring. History and greatness clinging like gems to the side of the crystal snifter cradled in your hand.

Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
There are three primary grades of Cognac recognized by law: V.S., V.S.O.P., and X.O, but we also know Napoléon, XXO, and Hors d'âge.
There are six different wine-growing areas (crus) authorized to produce Cognac - in descending order of prestige: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, and Bois Ordinaires.
D’Aincourt’s emblem recalls the French Empire insignia worn on their military uniforms.
Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavor usually found in extra-aged fortified wines (Port, Sherry, Madeira, Marsala …) and fruit-based Spirits, namely Cognacs, Calvados, and Armagnac. It appears in Cognac after roughly 10 years of maturing in oak casks, becoming more intense over the years.
There are three different qualities of Cognac recognized by law: V.S. (very special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and X.O. (Extra Old).
