Camus Ile de Ré Double Matured Cognac

Camus Cognac

Camus Ile de Re Double Matured Cognac is an extraordinary blend of eaux-de-vies grown on the small island if Ile de Re, in the most westerly part of the Cognac region.  Because of the strong Atlantic winds, grapes grown here are highly influenced by the sea and weather.  The resulting tastes produced are unique - inimitable eaux-de-vie with an island character balanced by fruity notes and outstanding smoothness.

Yet further character is brought to the cognac due to its double maturation.  After first ageing in the island's cellars, this cognac undergoes a second maturation in old “red” barrels, which have undergone a special toasting process at the cooperage, developed by Camus's Cellar Master.  Best enjoyed ver ice, or with a dash of water, the smoky character and the maritime influence will express themselves to the full, providing the lucky drinker with a truly memorable and unique tasting experience.

Tasting Notes

Tasting notes: Neat, you will discover the toasted and subtle spicy notes, with as little barrel oak as possible, and a subtle and smooth balance between smoky hints and rich, crystallised fruit flavours.

Since 1863, five generations of the CAMUS family have cultivated a single-minded passion for crafting great Cognac with their own style. With 180 hectares in the smallest and rarest AOC cru - Borderies - renowned for producing eaux-de-vie with an intense floral bouquet and excellent ageing qualities - the Camus family has always been deeply involved in winemaking and distilling. It is this unbreakable bond between the land, the traditions and the men who live on it, that helps craft superb Cognacs. In 2000, the House premiered with the first ever 100% Borderies XO Cognac. A solid success, it was to become the Camus signature Cognac, offering an outstanding combination of violet and vanilla spice aromas of intense velvety smoothness.

Camus Elegance range is a bold illustration of CAMUS’ Living Tradition with Cognacs that truly respect the original character of the eaux-de-vie and are remarkable for the finesse of their blends. In its ongoing search to explore the diverse regions of the Cognac appellation, CAMUS became the first Cognac House to capture the unique marine notes of the Ile de Ré vineyards. Raised and aged on the island, Camus Ile de Ré Cognacs typically offer fresh iodine notes with hints of dried fruit with archetypal mellow softness. Produced in limited quantities, they offer a rich and unique taste experience. Camus also proposes a Masterpiece collection of rare, limited cuvées, each consisting of a unique, exceptional blend presented in spectacular cases as well as Rarissimes vintages of most extraordinary Cognacs - certified under bailiff’s supervision and bottled without reduction, allowing them to express the full strength of their aroma and character.
