Name: XO Marc Newson
A limited edition of the emblematic Hennessy X.O with a unique design entirely redesigned by Marc Newson to bring a touch of modernity to this assembly whose recipe has not changed since 1870.
Although Hennessy, destined to become the world leader in cognac sales, was founded in 1765, it was not until 1870 and the arrival at the helm of Maurice Hennessy, great-grandson of the founder, that the iconic Hennessy X.O (for Extra Old) was created. Relying on a firm intuition that modernity would be synonymous with rarity, Maurice Hennessy developed a Dantesque blending recipe, including nearly one hundred of the best eaux-de-vie from the best Cognac terroirs and carefully stored in the cellar. A successful gamble, since in almost 150 years, the recipe has never been changed. But then, how to bring a contemporary and modern touch to a timeless Cognac? This is where Marc Newson, an exceptional Australian designer, comes in. Recognized as one of the most influential designers of his generation, considered by the Times as one of the hundred most influential people in the world, he used his unique talents to create the aesthetics of this limited edition for Hennessy X.O. The result is an audacious reinterpretation of this more than one hundred year old bottle, which gives it a renewed lightness, leaving an impression of transparency and total modernity. Marc Newson completes his work with an ethereal case that gives only one desire: to open it.
Volume of alcohol 40%.
Color Intense color of a rare marble.
Nose The first wave overwhelms you with its rich aromas of dried fruit, prune or dried fig. The nose evolves towards denser notes of chocolate and black pepper, softened by cinnamon, clove and cardamom. This fragrant and generous bouquet of candied fruit, oak and spices combines very distinctly with scents of old leather.
Palate Very balanced on the palate, Hennessy X.O cognac confirms the aromas discovered by the sense of smell: here we find dried fruits and chocolate. Elegant and robust, it reveals a beautiful balance and roundness. The harmony of the aromas is underlined by powerful peppery notes and hints of oak.
Finish The long and seductive finish is velvety smooth. It blossoms with pleasant notes of cinnamon and vanilla.
