Discover the Beautiful Borderies with this Limited Edition VSOP from Camus
Created from eaux-de-vie aged for at least four years, Camus Limited Edition Borderies VSOP Cognac presents a lively sweet and floral character typical of the small Borderies region of Cognac. This limited edition has been produced predominately from the magnificent Domaine Camus vineyards in the heart of the prestigious Borderies appellation and was distilled with the lees for additional depth of flavor.
Camus owns the largest extension of vineyards belonging to one single producer in the region, creating distinctive Cognacs with floral notes from the unique clay-limestone soil. The long maturation process in seasoned casks has allowed the mineral notes of this VSOP Cognac to merge into rich vanilla and orange, showing a stunning balance between eau-de-vie and 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. The Camus family are passionate about responsible cultivation, allowing their fields to accumulate organic matter while preserving wildlife in the surrounding environment.

Unusually elegant VSOP!
I had never tasted a Cognac from the Borderies terrroir before, but I'm very pleased with this bottle. I've taken to tasting at least 3 separate occasions before commenting now. This is a spirit which appreciates some breathing by a newly opened bottle. The freshly opened spirit seemed a bit harsh, but a day later was living up to the reputation of a great VSOP. The nose is complex, but interesting. On the palate, I easily detected the fruitiness for which the terroir is famous, and the finish was very smooth but not as long as XO Cognacs. Overall, an excellent buy at the price asked for such a distinctive spirit. One of the best VSOPs I've experienced. Would pair well with dark chocolate.
Main ingredient of turkey recipe.
Turns out that this cognac was pretty delighted to be the guest of our cognac cream sauce for oven cooked turkey. Also, used the last drops as appetizer.
PRO: Cheap, the nose is pretty interesting, but the actual taste (or palate) wasn't that great, maybe due to turkey smell in the kitchen.
