Omschrijving

Camus Extra Old Elegance Cognac

A myriad of flavors and aromas in every sense of the word, the Camus XO Elegance is a carefully crafted and rich Cognac with eaux-de-vie from all six of the terroirs. Many years of craftsmanship are required to create a Cognac of this quality. Dating back to 1863, this Cognac hails from one of the oldest owned Cognac houses in the entire region, which makes it extra unique as an XO. As an Extra Old Cognac, it is aged in Limousin oak barrels and alembic copper stills, and the eaux-de-vie are selected from the Fine Champagne terroirs, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, Bois à Terroirs and highly coveted Borderies region. Such a diverse blend of various eaux-de-vie indicates the sheer expertise that goes into blending a bottle of this caliber. It has also cinched a number of awards for its fantastic assemblage, and floral, fruity character.

The signature of the Camus Cognac maison is the rare and highly sought-after eaux-de-vie descending from the Borderies region, which gives their Cognac the highly desirable aromatic length and rounded quality that many desire. The XO Elegance is a fine blend of many eaux-de-vie, but those from the Borderies give it that signature feel.

The process of maturation for the XO Elegance which is carefully overseen by the Master Blender at Camus Cognac is a honed craft. The humidity level in the cellar is kept high initially, and then over time is decreased. This gives this XO the particular roundness that Cognac lovers enjoy.

How to enjoy Camus XO Elegance

The Extra Old Elegance from Camus Cognac is best served in a tulip glass, to really bring out the color and aromas. Enjoy it straight, or with a splash of mineral water. It is best enjoyed between 17 and 20 degrees Celsius. Presentation The XO Elegance decanter is smooth, rounded and curvaceous, and will look really great placed in your drinks cabinet. It arrives in a chic black box.

  • Gold at 2011 Beverage Tasting Institute Awards
  • Silver at 2012 IWSC
  • Gold at 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition

My husband and I visited Camus while on a trip to France. Being able to enjoy this wonderful cognac, knowing the history and quality was a great opportunity. Camus cognac is a wonderful treat.


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.
