Camus Extra Cognac: a Landmark Release
This very special, multi-award-winning expression from the historic House of Camus was originally created to celebrate the millennium. Camus Extra Cognac is made up some of the oldest and finest Cognacs from the Borderies, Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne crus. With the eaux-de-vie in the blend ranging from 30 to 50 years old, this is a rare Hors d’Age Cognac indeed.
The presence in the blend of some rare old Borderies eaux-de-vie from the smallest growing area enhances the sophisticated, smooth aroma with an unmistakable scent of violets.
After optimum maturation for several decades in cool, damp cellars, this aged Cognac has developed intense aromatic flavors with dominating notes of florals, toasted nuts and leather, culminating in a velvety final.
