Eye: Gold with mahogany reflections. 

Nose: Rich and highly complex, marrying hints of dried violets with tobacco, leather and walnut notes.

Palate: An exceptional mouthfeel bursting with nutty and woody flavors softened by fresh florals. Some exotic spices and more leather enter on the mid-palate, leading into a mellow, soft finish of great depth.

Description

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. 

Awards and Accolades

  • San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2016 - Gold Medal
  • International Wine & Spirits Competition 2015 - Silver Medal, ‘Outstanding’
Presentation of the Bottle

The curved, tapered-edge decanter is elegance and simplicity itself. Unsurprisingly, the House of Camus has opted for a modern design to celebrate a new millennium, with clean lines and futuristic chrome stopper. The stunning, high-end presentation box opens up like a book to slowly reveal the bottle. This would make an exceptional centerpiece for any Cognac collection. 

How to Enjoy Camus Extra Cognac

Rare old blends like this deserve your full attention: pour gently into a tulip glass and let it rest for 30 seconds before taking a sip. To allow the aromas to open up further, a small dash of mineral water could be added.

About Camus Cognac

Since 1863, five generations of the Camus family have cultivated a single-minded passion for crafting great Cognac with their own style. Laid across 180 hectares in the smallest and rarest AOC cru - the Borderies - the Camus family has always been deeply involved in winemaking and distilling. It is this unbreakable bond between the land, the traditions and the people who live on it that helps them craft superb Cognacs. Today, it is Cyril Camus who is the bearer of all family tradition and oversees the undisputed quality of Camus Cognac. Export development and product development remain at the top, with a passion for innovation. Cyril Camus has entirely modernized the Cognac house’s interiors, relying on a fresh new take on Cognac for the new century. Instead of leather, wood and velvet in shades of brown, he opts for light colors and a combination of tradition and modern design. d Korea, firmly establishing Camus as one of the five leading Cognac houses at the time.
