Camus Ile de Ré Double Matured: Where The Land Meets The Sea
Camus Ile de Ré Double Matured Cognac is an extraordinary blend of eaux-de-vie grown on the small island of Ile de Ré, in the most westerly part of the Cognac region known as Bois Ordinaires. Battered by strong Atlantic winds, grapes grown here are highly influenced by the seaside climate.
To enhance the flavour further, this expression has undergone a double maturation. Initially matured on the island in a high-humidity cellar, the eaux-de-vie are later transported to the Cognac region to be finished in very old ‘red’ barrels. These barrels have undergone a special toasting process at the cooperage to provide structure, body and a gentle smoked flavor to the Cognac; the resulting taste is a striking combination of island character balanced by fruity notes and an outstanding smoothness.
Camus is a long-running Cognac house, famous for producing a wide range of eaux-de-vie. Founded by the winegrower and distiller Jean-Baptise Camus in 1863, it remains in the hands of the Camus family to this day.
