Excelia Añejo, NOM #1139, comes to us from the intersection of wine, tequila and, cognac, and of two award-winning minds bridging those industries.
Carlos Camerena of Tequila Ocho and Jean-Sébastien Robicquet of Maison Villevert, a spirits and wine house in the Cognac region of France come together to produce an exceptional tequila, aged in both vintage grand cru sauternes casks, and 20 year old Cognac barrels, then blended to perfection.
Young sauternes casks lend their sweetness and fruit notes to the tequila while the aged cognac barrels sharpen the agave flavors and round out the palate with earth and spice.
Aged eighteen months, Excellia™ Añejo delivers dessert wine aromas (ripe and sweet grapes, dried apricots and pears) with evolving notes of rancio, baked spices and herbs, leather and sandalwood. The palate is intense and round with a strong and tannic woodiness along with fresh spices, tingling pepper and sweet charcoal notes. The long finish is gradual and revelatory with balanced lingering tones of cocoa and orchard.
Aromas: Agave forward, baked fruits (apricot, pear, apple), toasted wood
Palate: Rich agave, round mouth feel of honey butter, slight smoke, dark chocolate, tannins and herbs
Finish: Long, with mild heat, fresh baked fruit pie essence
This unique profile is not to be missed for your liquor cart or cabinet. Best served neat, at the end of a meal or with a bite of dark chocolate.
