Maxime Trijol Liqueur d’Orange

Available at the LCBO for a limited time!     LCBO #12064    $47.20

Cognac producer since 1859, Trijol Family acquired a real know-how in distillation and blending that is passed from generation to generation. This Orange liqueur flavored Cognac Maxime Trijol is the fruit of this knowledge and the expression of our passion for spirits.

In 1972, Jean-Jacques Trijol took over from his father, and with the same passion and meticulousness as his ancestors has preserved the family secret in making outstanding Cognac.

In 2013, his two daughters, Anne-Sophie and Pauline joined him in running the property and its 22 stills.

This family story is above all about finding the right balance between tradition and modern techniques over the generations. It has ensured the sustained independence of one of the largest family-owned Cognac distilleries.

TASTING COMMENTS
Golden yellow color, with golden and amber highlights. A bright and clear color. The nose is lively and very expressive. Orange aromatic complexity is intense, tasty and crisp. The second nose develops on slightly acid notes such as bergamot. The orange flavor is rich and reveals a lovely note of freshness that makes this liquor
attractive. On the palate, the attack is soft, but frank. The aromas of orange and zest are clean, expressive, but bringing a touch of complexity. All supported by a nice tangy note without excessive sweet note.
Maxime Trijol Orange is a perfect balance between Cognac and Orange. The assembly of these two worlds bring new fun for both elegant and accessible. The harmony between the flavors and aromas lead to the pleasure to share a moment, all without excess.

TASTING SUGGESTIONS
Serve chill, on ice, in cocktail.

D.O. Rueda

LCBO VINTAGES #633768       $12.95

The Castillo de la Mota is the result of precision work in the vineyards with respect to the natural cycles of winemaking. Grapes are from vines between 25 and 40 years old, with a low yield of 2 kg per vine, this results in intensive aromas. Grapes are harvested at night to protect the grapes from oxidation. After pressing, the grapes are fermented for at least one month in stainless-steel tanks on their own lees (sur-lie). The entire production process is taken care of under a protective atmosphere to avoid additions of extra sulfites during the process.
