Germain Robin XO Brandy is simply the finest XO that exists —smoother, more balanced, more complex than XO cognacs, with a subtle and distinctive Californian fragrance & flavor of deep, rich fruit. This is the brandy they set out to make when they founded GERMAIN-ROBIN. Germain-Robin is the only producer in the world to base its distilling material on 100% world-class wine grapes. The Select Barrel XO is 80% Pinot Noir. No French producer distills grapes of this quality.
