Ambre X.O

A rich blend of brandies distilled and aged at the Manoir des Ambres, this Calvados is poised between generosity and elegance. The pale orange colour precedes a smooth bouquet of almond and cherry which, on the palate, reveals delicate notes of vanilla. This Calvados expresses its sweet fruit with confidence and grace, offering a deep and rounded experience with a luscious and silky finish.

Tasting notes

Colour : Bright, slightly amber orange

Nose : Gently floral, slightly leafy and finely woody with notes of vanilla and caramel.

Palate : Sweet and rich. The aromas from the nose continue on the palate and stay for a long finish, ending on lightly woody notes and a gentle bitterness.


Serving AMBRE X.O

As an aperitif, neat or on the rocks. As a palate cleanser between courses. As a tasting Calvados after the dessert.
