A blend of eaux de vie from all six Cognac crus — Borderies, Grand Champagne, Petite Champagne, Bons Bois, Fins Bois and Bois a Terroirs — Camus Cognac XO Elegance utilizes the best traits of each of these crus to produce a magnificent whole. The Borderies cru, for instance, delivers rounder flavor and more aromatic length. After long aging in cool, damp cellars and careful blending, the result is a cognac of complex but harmonious elements. Bright amber in color, this cognac introduces an array of flavors to the palate, including fresh and candied fruit notes along with hints of honey, chocolate and nuts. During the long aromatic finish, subtle notes of oak and vanilla become evident. Enjoy this superior cognac at a serving temperature of 17 to 20 degrees C in a tulip glass neat or with a splash of mineral water.

Camus Cognac XO Elegance 0 750ml
To date this has been one of my favorite XO's. I think I like it better than the Camus Borderies XO. The blending is superb, and you can certainly taste the addition of the Borderie Eau de Vie. The finish with Rancio isn't overpowering and is almost sweet. This not like some cloying XO's where it is just age and heavy Rancio. A Nectar of the Gods!!
