Description

Camus Ile de Ré Fine Island Cognac: an Indulgent Breath of Ocean Air

Cams Ile de Ré Fine Island is a Cognac like no other from the westernmost vineyards of France, with a uniquely distinctive, marine taste profile, deeply linked to its island provenance. The calcareous and sandy soils of the Island contribute the vigor of the vines while the natural abundance of seaweed (kelp) and the sea spray wind-swept over the vineyards give a typically marine composition to the grapes, richer in iodine. The unique island climate, windy but warmer than the continent creates also the perfect environment for a steady and consistent maturation in barrels. The result is a smooth and balanced Cognac, with marine notes that make it entirely unique in the category, best served neat, on ice or in cocktails.

Presentation of the bottle

Camus Ile de Ré Fine Island Cognac is presented in a wide, bold bottle, featuring an image of the Ile de Ré lighthouse. A cream-colored box, perfectly matching the foil seal, completes this elegantly-designed package. 

How to Enjoy Camus Ile de Ré Cognac

Best enjoyed neat as a digestif, the subtle smoky character and the maritime influence here will provide the lucky drinker with a truly memorable and unique tasting experience. A dash of still spring water will reveal its powerful character to the full. This Cognac would be an excellent match for grilled seafood dishes, or simply dashed over fresh oysters. 

About Camus Cognac

Since 1863, five generations of the Camus family have cultivated a single-minded passion for crafting great Cognac with their own style. Laid across 180 hectares in the smallest and rarest AOC cru - the Borderies - the Camus family has always been deeply involved in winemaking and distilling. It is this unbreakable bond between the land, the traditions and the people who live on it that helps them craft superb Cognacs. 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. Cyril Camus has entirely modernized the Cognac house’s interiors, relying on a fresh new take on Cognac for the new century. Instead of leather, wood and velvet in shades of brown, he opts for light colors and a combination of tradition and modern design.
