Camus Borderies VSOP Cognac: an Award-Winning Single Estate Expression
The distinctive Camus Single Estate Borderies VSOP Cognac has been crafted entirely from eaux-de-vie produced on the Camus estate. Bursting with floral notes, it’s a wonderful expression of the old - and somewhat underrated - Borderies cru, aged for a minimum of four years in fine-grained French oak. We’re not surprised that this is the most-awarded Cognac from Camus, boasting a consistent collection of gold medals.
The House of Camus owns the largest expanse of vineyards belonging to one single producer in the Borderies region - the oldest and smallest cru in the appellation, representing less than 5% of the cognac AOC. Here, brandy production first started 500 years ago. Thanks to the unique combination of clay and limestone soil across the Borderies, eaux-de-vie from this area tend to develop distinctive floral notes and a solid structure, clearly evident in this expression.
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.
