Description

Camus Napoléon Rare Old Cognac: Remarkable Contrast and Harmony

This exquisite blend comprises over 100 different eaux-de-vie from across the five main Cognac producing regions: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois and Bons Bois. The Camus Napoléon Rare Old Cognac is full and fragant, with complex aromas of dried fruits and cedarwood. Well structured, it reveals on the palate sturdy tannin notes and a dry finish. Unsurprisingly, it was awarded a gold medal at the 1989 International Wine and Spirit Competition.

Camus is a long-running Cognac house, famous for producing a wide range of eaux-de-vie. Since Jean-Baptise Camus founded his company in 1863, four generations have followed in his footsteps to turn this small winegrower into a world-renowned Cognac house of distinction. Their family-owned vineyards are part of a magnificent estate of 280 hectares (691 acres), located in the very heart of Cognac. Under Cyril Camus, fifth-generation director of Camus Cognac, the family remains passionate about responsible cultivation, allowing their fields to accumulate organic matter while preserving wildlife in the surrounding environment.

Presentation of the Bottle

The bottle design for Camus Napoléon Rare Old Cognac is elegant, with a gently curved profile, frosted black glass emblazoned with the Camus emblem and a slim neck covered with deep red foil to match the label. An equally stylish red presentation box completes the package. 

How to Enjoy

Take the time to leave this Cognac to rest in your glass before tasting it, and prepare yourself for the moment when you take the first sip. For the best tasting experience, serve at room temperature, or slightly chilled, in a tulip glass.
