Camus VSOP Ile de Ré Fine Island Cognac

Camus Cognac

The Camus VSOP 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.  This located in the most westerly part of the cognac growing region.  Grapes grown here produce inimitable eaux-de-vie with an island character balanced by fruity notes and outstanding smoothness.  This VSOP is the youngest cognac in the range.  Served neat, it will surprise you with its light, fresh tanginess. Chilled or over ice, this cognac offers a creamy texture. A dash of still spring water will reveal its powerful character to the full.

Tasting Notes

Tasting notes: Has a nose with light, fresh notes of iodine and a lively, delicately oaked opening palate with dried fruit notes, leading into the characteristic smooth finish with a salty touch...

Since 1863, five generations of the CAMUS family have cultivated a single-minded passion for crafting great Cognac with their own style. With 180 hectares in the smallest and rarest AOC cru - Borderies - renowned for producing eaux-de-vie with an intense floral bouquet and excellent ageing qualities - the Camus family has always been deeply involved in winemaking and distilling. It is this unbreakable bond between the land, the traditions and the men who live on it, that helps craft superb Cognacs. In 2000, the House premiered with the first ever 100% Borderies XO Cognac. A solid success, it was to become the Camus signature Cognac, offering an outstanding combination of violet and vanilla spice aromas of intense velvety smoothness.

Camus Elegance range is a bold illustration of CAMUS’ Living Tradition with Cognacs that truly respect the original character of the eaux-de-vie and are remarkable for the finesse of their blends. In its ongoing search to explore the diverse regions of the Cognac appellation, CAMUS became the first Cognac House to capture the unique marine notes of the Ile de Ré vineyards. Raised and aged on the island, Camus Ile de Ré Cognacs typically offer fresh iodine notes with hints of dried fruit with archetypal mellow softness. Produced in limited quantities, they offer a rich and unique taste experience. Camus also proposes a Masterpiece collection of rare, limited cuvées, each consisting of a unique, exceptional blend presented in spectacular cases as well as Rarissimes vintages of most extraordinary Cognacs - certified under bailiff’s supervision and bottled without reduction, allowing them to express the full strength of their aroma and character.

i was very anxious to taste this camus cognac, but at first sip in my mouth it tasted like a whisky. like the description say it's rough! i had another glass couple days later but it was the same.it's not enough elegant, not worked it's not relaxing. i'm kind of deceived of this cognac, that for me it isn't one. not so shure in how many years will i be able to finish this bottle..
