Camus Prestige Jubilée Cognac: a Reason to Celebrate
The Camus Prestige Jubilée Cognac is an extraordinary Premier Cru blend, created in 1913 by Edmond Camus, the son of the founder of Camus Cognac. This Prestige Cognac was created to mark the 50th anniversary of the house, making it an extraordinary bottle for any collector to own. In classic Grande Champagne style, this is a Cognac which has aged with elegance; its rich notes of oak, leather and honey show a level of integration that can only come from decades of maturation in Limousin oak.
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 Baccarat Crystal decanter, designed by Serge Manseau, is as impressive as its contents. With a multifaceted, cutaway design, a thin rope decoration on the neck and an oversized crystal stopper, this is a bottle to admire time and time again. Each decanter is numbered and presented in a stunning gift box.
This Cognac is beyond over my expectations, round, rich, very delicious with the 3 layers aftertaste.
Better than many bottles of Louis XIII I've ever had.
