This copper--penny colored Cognac is best when allowed time to open, since it evolves in the glass. The nose offers notes of dried cherries, toffee and oak. The palate is light at first, with vanilla and warm caramel deepening to an unusually fruity finish full of rounded apricot and orange flavors. It's mouthwatering and delicious, perfect for pairing with fruit tarts and pie.
Camus XO is the result of a careful selection of the best eaux-de-vie which matured for at least 10 years and took place in small oak casks. The use of a lightly burned fine-grain wood offers a perfect balance between powerful aromas and subtle tannins. Each blend contains distillates from Borderie's own vintage, enhancing the floral notes of this intensely aromatic cognac.
