Omschrijving

Camus Cuvée 4.160 Cognac

Camus Cuvee 4.160 is the new edition and sixth opus in Camus’ exceptional Cuvée collection. Released in a very limited batch of just 784 bottles, it is a limited edition delight - not to be missed. With each eau-de-vie selected boasting its own individual and unique character, this Cuvee reveals complex aromas that withstand the course of time, having reached optimal age after a vigorous maturation process. Camus Cuvee 4.160 Cognac is made up of the following vintage components that together form the blend:

65% of 1988

Summer 1988 was a hot season, and the early maturing of the grapes led to a very aromatic crop that was harvested relatively early in the season. It features superb, subtle, sweet and spicy aromas with notes of dried fruit, hazelnut and ginger. The length of the finish and prevailing rancio are exceptional.

19% of 1975 Petite Champagne

1975 was one of the driest years in recent history and this vintage makes it a powerful cognac with crisp aromas. The distillation on the lees provides high ester levels, producing a sweet backbone with hints of dried fruit like plums, plum jam and dried figs.

14% of 1970 Borderies

This 1970 cognac from the Borderies vineyards was aged in a dry cellar to achieve a 41.3% alcohol content. An intense floral bouquet of aromatic notes on the palate is backed by long notes of dark chocolate, honey and panettone, which complement the smooth creaminess of the Borderies terroir.

2% of 1973

This unique 1973 vintage was initially aged in oak barrels in a damp cellar. Its intense aromatic profile and tannin levels provide strong notes of cedarwood, cardamom and dried almond to the final blend.

Camus is a Cognac house that takes pride in embracing traditional strengths whilst remaining at the forefront of science in striving to reach new levels of intensity in the aromas of their Cognacs. The house has been independently operating since 1863 and has succeeded in upholding strong family values across five generations - all in quest of producing the utmost refinement when it comes to the production of Cognac.

Presentation of the bottle

Housed in a unique, hand-made bottle design, Cuvee 4.160 epitomizes luxury. Set in a thick, heavy based decanter, the form is ressemblant somewhat of a pine tree, which perhaps took inspiration from the forest surrounding the Camus family estate and vineyards. Finished with a stunning glass bottle stopper in black, the neck of the decanter is dressed in a leather corset. Each unique feature of the design is in keeping with the brands notable attention to detail and expert ability to produce outstanding products that shine bright amongst the rest. Arriving with a sophisticated black and gold, two door wooden presentation box, this Cognac is truly a one of a kind collectors item, that will no doubt increase in value as the years pass by.

How to enjoy

A stand-out, complex and diverse Cognac that deserves your utmost attention. Pour delicately into a tulip glass, allowing the Cognac to breathe for a few minutes before tasting. Enjoy on its own to experience the unique set of aromas characterized by each vintage component in the blend. Appreciate when in good spirits and with good company for an unforgettable experience to be cherished.

Over Camus Cognac

Sinds 1863 hebben vijf generaties van de Camus-familie een eenduidige passie gekweekt voor het maken van geweldige Cognac met hun eigen stijl. Met 180 hectare grond in de kleinste en zeldzaamste AOC cru - de Borderies - is de Camus-familie altijd diepgaand betrokken geweest bij het maken en distilleren van wijn. Het is deze onbreekbare band tussen het land, de tradities en de mensen die erop wonen die hen helpt om prachtige Cognacs te maken. Vandaag de dag is het Cyril Camus die de drager is van alle familietradities en toeziet op de onbetwiste kwaliteit van Camus Cognac. Exportontwikkeling en productontwikkeling staan bovenaan het lijstje, met een passie voor innovatie. Cyril Camus heeft het interieur van het Cognac huis volledig gemoderniseerd en vertrouwt op een frisse nieuwe kijk op Cognac voor de nieuwe eeuw. In plaats van leer, hout en fluweel in bruintinten kiest hij voor lichte kleuren en een combinatie van traditie en modern design.
