Ambre XIV

A taste of the distillery’s illustrious history, this Calvados is a careful blend of three remarkable brandies from 2004, 2005 and 2006, each distilled and aged at the Manoir des Ambres. In the glass, the liquor is orange brown with glints of mahogany. Sumptuous, powerful, and complex aromas combine buttery English toffee and rancio notes with more subtle aromas of candied fruit and vanilla. On the palate, this beautifully structured Calvados offers volume and harmony, a gentle yet sophisticated performance which lingers on the palate.
