D'Aincourt Rare XO is … there is no other word for it … sophisticated elegance in Cognac. 
 
Vincent Norguet has lived in the spirits business for more than 15 years. But two years ago—his passion for premium Cognac inspired him to strike out on his own to found Maison D’Aincourt. D’Aincourt wasted no time, securing an inventory of super-premium Cognacs from 20 to 70 years old from a “mysterious distillery” founded in 1848 and located in the heart of the Cognac region. 
 
They use only the best eaux-de-vie from 100% Grande Champagne cru. Cognac of this quality and age is more than rare, it is a treasure. And the standing inventory amassed by D’Aincourt is the envy of his generation. The Master Bender then operates like a perfumer whose alchemy is as much a delight for the nose as the pallet. Is it your turn to get a share of this French treasure? 
 
D’Aincourt Rare XO Cognac is a delicate balance of 10 eaux-de-vie—all of it that prized Grand Champaign cru. Those the youngest Cognac in the bottle is 20 years old, but the rest of them are far older … spending up to 50 years in Limousin oak. Each bottle is a family of fine Cognac generations, and each member of that family is carefully selected for … there is no other word for it … elegance. 

 
Did you know that on a warm spring Friday night, a small group of Flaviar Members flew to Paris for exclusive D'Aincourt Cognac tasting? Want to find out what happened there? Get a glimpse behind the scenes!

Antti,
An outstanding, balanced & smooth Cognac. Too bad, an introduction to Cognac does not always start here.

Delicate, sweet, smooth. A rare treat. Barely tastes like a spirit.

David,
This tasting box of D'Aincourt Cognac just put Flaviar over the top as the best and most generous tasting subscription out there! Flaviar does not skimp on quality. These Congacs are amazing. They didn't have to give these away in a tasting box for me to continue on with them, but after this, I am not going anywhere. If you are not a premier subscriber, you are really missing out! Thank you Flaviar.
