CAMUS Return To Saint-Aulaye Cognac: Single-Cru, Single-Varietal Cognac from the last vineyards of Dordogne.

Camus Return To Saint-Aulaye is a small-batch Cognac produced exclusively from Colombard grapes, selected from the very last vineyards of Dordogne used to make Cognac. Distilled in 206, this Cognac was bottled at an ABV of 43% on the 4th year of aging and is therefore classified as a VSOP.

With the vineyards grown on a small pocket of land, located in the village of Saint-Aulaye, this Cognac is the final product of decades worth of hard work and determination. With help from the village council of Saint-Aulaye, the house of Camus set out to restore the forgotten area - on the verge of dying out completely from the world of Cognac production. The story of Camus Return To Saint-Aulaye all starts with the vigorous search for local historical archives to source the region’s original production tradition dating back to the nineteenth century. This task enabled a meticulous selection of areas to plant new vines according to the geological nature of the land and its effect on the aromatic profile of the eventual eaux-de-vie to be produced.

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. Operating since 1863, the house 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. With a clear picture in mind of future Cognac production, the Saint-Aulaye village council partnered up with Maison Camus in order to craft a Cognac that brings life to the true essence of the forgotten terroir.

Meanwhile, the sensory aspects are brought to life through warm and welcoming colors. The texts and drawings are underlined by an elegant golden thread that lights up the entire bottle, inflicting a touch of elegance in light of the Cognac inside. The premium cardboard box broadens the gaze on the Dordogne terroir, illustrating the journey through the vineyards and the birth of this one-of-a-kind Cognac.
