Eye: Antique gold.

Nose: Starts with light, fresh notes of iodine followed by orchard fruit and a hint of oak.

Palate: The nose carries on into a lively, delicately oaked opening palate and creamy texture. Dried fruit notes lead to a superbly smooth finish, lifted by just a sprinkle of sea salt.

Omschrijving

Camus Ile de Ré Fine Island Cognac: an Indulgent Breath of Ocean Air

The Camus Ile de Ré Fine Island Cognac is one of a range of Cognacs produced by the house from the vineyards located on the Ile de Ré Island in the most westerly part of the Cognac region known as Bois Ordinaires. Battered by strong Atlantic winds, the grapes grown here produce inimitable eaux-de-vie with an island character balanced by fruity notes and outstanding smoothness. This expression is the youngest Cognac in the range, aged in an extremely damp cellar in lightly toasted oak barrels. Served neat, it will surprise you with its light, fresh tanginess; unsurprisingly, it has won a wide range of awards, including a gold medal at the Cognac Masters and an ‘oustanding’ medal from the IWSC. 

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), and 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

Camus Ile de Ré Fine Island Cognac is presented in a wide, bold bottle, featuring an image of the Ile de Ré lighthouse. A cream-colored box, perfectly matching the foil seal, completes this elegantly-designed package. 

How to Enjoy Camus Ile de Ré Cognac

Best enjoyed neat as a digestif, the subtle smoky character and the maritime influence here will provide the lucky drinker with a truly memorable and unique tasting experience. A dash of still spring water will reveal its powerful character to the full. This Cognac would be an excellent match for grilled seafood dishes, or simply dashed over fresh oysters.

If you like Whisky, try this Cognac

So i am more a whisky man - i read an article about which cognacs to try if you love whisky. So this Camus bottle was among that selection and i ordered a bottle. really solid value for money, fruity (compared to a whisky) bit still dry enough for me. love that camus line for sure!


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.
