Tasting review

Eye: Bright mahogany gold.

Nose: An initial symphony of dried flowers, oak, tobacco, grapes and the nuttiness of almonds and walnuts, with hints of butterscotch and cream pastries. As it breathes, the spiced oak transcends above the others.

Palate: The Cognac achieves a balance between the spiced oak and nuts, the creamy butterscotch, the delicate fruits, and flowers. It holds a great complexity that harmoniously unfolds on the taste bud. The finish is long and velvety. The gentle sweetness of the butterscotch and grapes lingers on the palate.

Description

A Millennium Special - A Cognac from the Borderies, Petite Champagne, and Grande Champagne region

Crafted by Michael Camus in the 1970s, Camus Extra Elegance Cognac, in part to celebrate the fast-approaching new millennium. As an exceptional Hors d’Age blend, the Extra Elegance underwent decades of long aging in the damp and cool cellars of Camus, allowing it to reach its peak quality. The exceptional eaux-de-vie range between 30 and 50 years, and have been hand-picked for their immense aging potential. The Extra Elegance is worthy of a spot in your collection: Its rare blend of eaux-de-vie that stem primarily from the terroirs of Borderies, Petite Champagne, and Grande Champagne lends the Cognac its intense aromatic flavors.

Camus Extra Elegance Awards

The International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) awarded the Camus Extra Elegance for two consecutive years:

  • Silver Outstanding in 2015 - Camus Extra Elegance
  • Gold in 2016 - Camus Extra Elegance

Its crystal decanter also received a Pentaward for incredible packaging design.

How to serve your Camus Extra Elegance

The mature Extra Elegance must not be hurried. To experience its fullness, allow the golden nectar to breathe, preferably in a tulip or balloon glass. Given its intense flavors and age, it is best to drink the cognac neat. Sip it slow, allow the fruity and floral notes to blossom, and wait for the spicy oak and sweet butterscotch to settle down. With care, the cognac reveals its perfectly balanced nature.

Camus Extra Elegance Millennium Crystal Decanter

Rather fittingly, this millennium special has a 70cl crystal decanter that was designed by Cyril Camus. The unique sleek design showcases the spirit and departs from Camus’s more robust tear-drop bottles. A brushed steel stopper seals the decanter and merges seamlessly with the crystal. It arrives in an ebony matte-finished box that unlatches from a corner. Inside, the decanter sits on a well-deserved pedestal.
