Ambre X.O

A rich blend of brandies from the 2011, 2012 and 2013 vintages 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.
