Camus Single Estate Borderies XO Cognac: a Winning Taste of the Borderies
The House of Camus owns the largest expanse of vineyards belonging to one single producer in the Borderies region - the smallest and most exclusive cru, where brandy production first started 500 years ago. Here they have created the distinctive Camus Single Estate Borderies XO Cognac, bursting with floral notes from the unique clay-limestone soil.
Each barrel of eaux-de-vie used for this blend is unique, with wines from each parcel of the vineyards being distilled and aged in separate casks. The long maturation process, lasting for at least a decade in seasoned casks, has allowed the fresh fruit notes of this XO Cognac to develop into sweet florals and spice, showing a stunning balance between spirit and oak.
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.
