This blend is a mix of different eaux-de-vie from different growing areas of the region. The traditional ageing process in barrels allows a very characteristic taste and color development. The historic cellars of the house of Fussigny are situated by the bank of the Charentes river, making its cellcars humid and perfect for matureing cognac. Once distilled, the eaux-de-vie age in Limousin and Troncaus oak casks.
Alize V.S. Cognac is distilled from the rarest grape in the region, the Folle Blanche and blended using eaux-de-vie from the five most prestigious crus in Cognac. Alize boasts a superior V.S. Cognac aged for six years, twice the ageing of most other V.S. cognacs as set out by the Bureau International du Cognac. This gives Alize V.S. its characteristically smooth, rich and deliciously rounded taste. Enjoy over ice or mixed with ginger beer.

Camus XO Elegance Cognac 1000ml:
Creating CAMUS XO Elegance requires years of meticulous work. The process starts with the careful selection of different styles of hugely rich eaux-de-vie from all six of the Cognac crus (Borderies, Petite Champagne, Bons Bois, Grande Champagne, Fins Bois, Bois a Terroirs).
The presence of the Borderies cru among these eaux-de-vie gives the Cognac a rounder flavor and greater aromatic length. Long aging in cool, damp cellars ensures that each barrel gains a perfect level of maturity. A meticulous blending process finally reveals the Cognac's personality in all its glory: a myriad of complex, harmonious aromas.
Best enjoyed in a tulip glass, either straight or mixed with a dash of mineral water. A serving temperature of 17-20oC is recommended to fully appreciate XO Elegance.
