Every bottle of Cognac Park Extra contains a blend of eaux-de-vie aged between 40 to 60 years old, with each distillate spending its first year in lightly toasted new French Limousin oak, and then transferred to older oak casks. The ugni blanc grapes used were harvested exclusively from the Grande Champagne cru, considered one of the best and favored growing regions for cognac. The complex soil is rich with chalk and limestone, making it most fertile for grape-growing. This cognac is one of the high end expressions in the brand's line up, showcasing the best attributes of the Grande Champagne cru.

Tasting Notes

"Cognac Park's "Extra" XO highlights grapes exclusively from the Grande Champagne cru. This an elegant expression, leathery with notes of oak, vanilla, dates, and dark tobacco that emerge throughout a long finish. It's a tight spirit that rewards exploration, allowing its nuances to unfold over time rather than revealing them all at once."
