The A. de Fussigny Fine Champagne XO Cognac is a wonderful example of a truly good XO. Naturally, such a great blend is a multiple award winner, and it deserves every single one of them. It's a Fine Champagne blend, meaning at least half of the eaux-de-vie within come from the premier terroir, Grande Champagne. The rest are from its neighboring terroir, Petite Champagne.
This is a superbly versatile XO to own. When enjoyed neat or with a dash of water (or even over ice if you’re feeling adventurous), it skips effortlessly through a spectrum of flavors, moving from fruity to spice in an almost miraculous manner. It’s also presented in a delightful bottle, with clean lines and handsome good looks. The perfect accompaniment to chocolate or caramel desserts, and also pairs well with a good cigar.

Eye: Hypnotizing golden amber with intense flashes of deep mahogany
Nose: Subtle and fruity, it teases with notes of toffee and black cherry, black tea, and cigar box
Palate: The aromas continue, evolving into black cherry jam, marmalade, vanilla, and toffee. There are hints of oak, black pepper, toasted almonds, and spices. The finish is long, and ultimately satisfying
