Germain-Robin X.O.Brandy California

(0) No Reviews yet


Only ten barrels of hand-distilled alambic brandy are selected annually for this bottling. A deep golden amber appearance hints to a civilized amount of barrel age. Velvety smooth on the palate with nutty, autumn spice flavors from the Limousin oak and a core of acidity that adds depth to the texture. This is reminiscent of distinguished aged cognac, and a real treat for the senses. If you ever thought great brandy was not available outside of France, I challenge you to take this one for a test drive.

Details

While driving up Highway 101 over 30 years ago, Ansley Coale picked up a random hitchhiker. His name was Hubert Germain-Robin, a descendant (dating back to 1782) of the Jules Robin Cognac family. They discussed how the art of distillation was dying due to the industrialization of Cognac and decided to embark on a parthership that would bring a hand-operated alambic still and the fine art of making artisan brandy to the U.S. After years of perfecting their "craft-method" of premium grape selection, distillation and barrel aging, they now hold the largest cellar of old brandies in the U.S., which has given them all the ingredients to produce spectacular blends that not only rival, but surpass the icons of Cognac.
