Camus XO EleganceCreating XO Elegance requires years of meticulous work. The process starts with the careful selection of different styles of rich eaux de vie, which, once blended, offer perfect aromatic harmony. Some are produced from the Borderies vineyards, giving extra generousity to the resulting cognac. After ageing for some time in cool, damp cellars, the eaux de vie reach perfect maturity. The result is a balanced, well-rounded, subtle and elegant cognac that reveals a multiplicity of mature aromas with a remarkably long finish.
Tasting notes: A bright amber color and, on the palate, a wide range of flavors combining touches of fresh and candied fruits (apricots, citrus) and notes of honey, chocolate, almonds and hazelnuts. The finish reveals subtle hints of oak and vanilla.

"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 pies."
