Camus Ile de Ré Fine Island Cognac: an Indulgent Breath of Ocean Air
The Camus Ile de Ré Fine Island Cognac is one of a range of Cognacs produced by the house from the vineyards located on the Ile de Ré Island in the most westerly part of the Cognac region known as Bois Ordinaires. Battered by strong Atlantic winds, the grapes grown here produce inimitable eaux-de-vie with an island character balanced by fruity notes and outstanding smoothness. This expression is the youngest Cognac in the range, aged in an extremely damp cellar in lightly toasted oak barrels. Served neat, it will surprise you with its light, fresh tanginess; unsurprisingly, it has won a wide range of awards, including a gold medal at the Cognac Masters and an ‘oustanding’ medal from the IWSC.
Camus is a long-running Cognac house, famous for producing a wide range of eaux-de-vie. 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), and 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.
