Camus Cuvee 5.150 Cognac: a Legacy of Five Generations
Five rare eaux-de-vie from five different Cognac growing regions have been blended to produce the Camus Cuvee 5.150 Cognac: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Fin Bois, Bon Bois and Borderies come together in one expression, presented in a delightfully irregular Baccarat Crystal decanter.
Since Jean-Baptise Camus founded his company in 1863, four generations have followed in his footsteps to turn this small winegrower into a world-renowned Cognac house of distinction. Their family-owned vineyards are part of a magnificent estate of 280 hectares (691 acres), located in the very heart of Cognac.
This extraordinary release has been designed as a celebration of the dedication of the five generations of hard work that have gone into bringing the House of Camus to where it is today. The temperament of Jean-Baptiste Camus is represented by the nobility and the structure of Bons Bois; a generous Fins Bois eaux-de-vie has been selected to represent Gaston Camus; the Petite Champagne has been chosen to pay homage to Michel Camus, with understated elegance, and the persistence of a Borderies cru suggests the delicate passion and integrity of Jean-Paul Camus. Finally, a portion of Grande Champagne brings to mind the instinctive spirit of Cyril Camus, driven by a desire to take his family legacy further and higher.
"When you taste an exceptional cognac, you are left with a lasting memory in your heart, as if sculpted by emotion. This is precisely what we were thinking of when we blended the Cuvée 5.150: the strength of the memory that it will leave behind." - Cyril Camus
Presentation of the Bottle
The Camus Cuvee 5.150 Anniversary Cognac is a limited edition of 1,492 Baccarat crystal decanters, each individually numbered and presented in a lacquered black case with a mirrored interior. The first 150 bottles also include a 100ml numbered sample, usually a set reserved for the Camus Cognac library. These miniatures are a rare opportunity to own the very last sample taken by the Cellar Master just before the decanters were filled.
