A. De Fussigny XO Fine ChampagneBlend:
Fine Champagne. Blend carrying at least 50% of Grande Champagne and the rest of Petite Champagne.
Golden amber with intense copper and mahogany hues.
A subtle fruity, floral and oaky nose with dominant notes of candied citrus and black cherry. Then typical aromas of cellar and oak barrels come along. The notes of candied fruit (orange, pear, plums and cherry), toffee and caramel beautifully marry with those of licorice and oak. Finally, some hints of black tea, tobacco and cigar box set in.
Big, round and well balanced structure. Close to its bouquet, flavors of black cherry jam and marmalade nicely lead into vanilla and toffee flavors with subtle notes of oak, toasted almonds, black pepper and spices. Long finish with notes of spiced vanilla, toffee and leather.
An expression to enjoy neat or with a dash of water for special occasions. Goes beautifully with any deserts, chocolate, creme brulee as well as stronger cigars.
