2017 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Roger Groult XO Pays d'Auge Calvados (France), 41% abv, $160.00

96
Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

This refined brandy shows succulent tones of apple skin and raw pear deftly framed in a robe of French oak. The palate has lost any fiery edge and instead seamlessly incorporates the aromatic elements for a delightfully long and complex drink suitable for the end of a decadent meal.
