There is an abundance of alcohol on the nose, but once you get past that the scent of this nut-brown spirit displays notes of almonds, marzipan, oranges and Sherry. On the tongue, caramel sweetness fades into a long, burnt-toffee finish. Medium body, smooth and silky texture.
Borderies XO is powerful, rich and creamy with a particularly velvety texture. It reveals intense sweet pastry aromas alongside notes of cinnamon, dried fruit, old port and violet. A hint of almond emerges in the long-lasting finish.
The XO Borderies is a unique experience. Despite being the smallest, Borderies is without a doubt the most sought-after Cognac cru. Ancestral home of the CAMUS family, the limestone soil and ideal sun exposure of the Borderies terroir provides the vines with a perfect hydric balance.
The appellation is divided into countless individual plots, and each is jealously sought-after. Guided by the vision of Jean-Paul CAMUS, an attentive and passionate winegrower who identified the potential of this terroir at a very early stage, Maison CAMUS has positioned itself as the premier Borderies estate thanks to a series of timely acquisitions.And the fact that Plessis, the CAMUS family home, lies in the heart of the Borderies region is proof of the family’s special attachment to this magnificent terroir.
