Camus VSOP Borderies Cognac
The most awarded VSOP Cognac at San Francisco WSC from 2013 to 2018, Camus VSOP Borderies is a Single-Estate Cognac produced exclusively from grapes selected from the Camus vineyards. Spanning over 188 hectares, Camus owns the largest extension of vineyards belonging to one single producer within the Borderies Cru. As a result of the unique clay-limestone rich soils here, the land gives origin to the distinct characteristics of this VSOP, which reveals deep floral and spicy aromas.
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. The house has been independently operating since 1863 and 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.

The nose has intense zesty orange, vanilla and a touch of banana. Plenty of concentrated orange on the palate as well. The zestiness continues. Spices come through at the end, with delightful complexity. I love this. It’s not multi-dimensional but the flavours are delicious.
Borderies Cognac really to try
First I read about the Borderies region as such and this caught my interest as many people focus on the Grande and Petite regions. This singe Estate from Camus ..... just go for. The nose gives floral aromas including violets and the orange zest together with vanilla and slight soft spices are around....

Today, it is Cyril Camus who is the bearer of all family tradition and oversees the undisputed quality of Camus Cognac. Export development and product development remain at the top, with a passion for innovation.
