Camus Borderies XO Cognac (700ml)

Cognac, FRANCE
$325. 00
$3900.00 Dozen
ABV: 40%

An unusual Cognac distilled from fruit sourced entirely from Borderies - Cognac's smallest appellation. Soils here are a mixture of chalk and clay with a micro climate that is generally the earliest to ripen fruit. In style, Borderies are typically early maturing, full bodied brandies used to give 'backbone' when blending.

Tasting note: Burnished copper/orange with a pale copper hue. Superb, perfumed aromas offer a top note of orange blossom and dried flowers over deeper scents of dried apricots, raisins and cinnamon. At first fruity, luscious and intense, the palate gradually dries revealing fig, dried apricot and vanilla bean flavours with excellent length. Seamless integration and perfectly balanced, finishing with a long, dry, delicate aftertaste of orange rind, dried apricot and clove. Elegant and immensely attractive. 40% Alc./Vol.
