Germain Robin XO Barrel Select Alambic Brandy

About 17yrs old and Pinot Noir base, this is rich and delicious with a viscous feel. Tasted bettter than some cognacs from France, with Toffee, nougat, red berries, and spice. The finish brings rancio,and a nutty flavor you find in some fortified wines or signature cognacs. D&M Tasting Notes

This bold, complex brandy resounds with chocolate, dried cherry and spice on nose and palate. Each sip opens with delicate ginger, pink peppercorn and cinnamon, underscored by drying leather, walnut and unsweetened chocolate. Apricot leather lends a mouthwatering quality to the finish. 94 PointsWine Enthusiast, May 2021

Germain-Robin brandies have no alcoholic roughness. Due to their origin in premium table-wine grape varietals, Germain-Robin brandies are unusually aromatic and flavorful, with no hint of harsh alcohol. It is interesting to compare any of them to a glass of cognac. Note the absence of the usual slight burning sensation in the nostrils (“attack”). Almost all brown spirits add about 2% (or more) of sugar and caramel: these coat the sugar receptors on the front of your tongue, giving a false impression of smoothness which disappears when you swallow: the back part of your mouth and the top of your throat have no sugar receptors, so harshness, or “bite”, is immediately apparent. Germain-Robin has no “bite” naturally: from the high quality of the grapes we use.
