Calvados Amber X.O
Rich in eaux-de-vie selected from the 2011, 2012 and 2013 vintages distilled and aged at the Manoir des Ambres, this calvados reveals a subtle balance between roundness and elegance. Its light orange colour dresses up a suave bouquet with aromas of almond and cherry which, on the palate, reveals delicate vanilla flavours. This round and deep calvados is particularly smooth and fruity, and is enhanced by a deliciously silky finish.
Enjoy Ambre X.O as an aperitif, dry, or on ice. As a Trou Normand in the middle of a meal. As a tasting calvados at the end of a meal.
