Camus XO Ile de Ré Fine Island Cognac

Camus Cognac

This Atlantic Cognac comes from the Island of Re, the Ile de Re, which lies close to the La Rochelle in the Maritime part of Charente. The Island has a 70 kilometres coastline, rough, windy and heavily influenced by the Atlantic sea. The grapes benefit from a good balance of sunshine and rather salty breezes. The cognac is based on wine which comes from Ugni Blanc grapes, that are harvested in the month of October. Camus Island XO Cognac is a special, maritime Cognac - partly aged close to the sea, later on matured with different conditions. The bottle keeps 70cl of 40% ABV Cognac.

Tasting Notes

The colour of Camus Ile de Re Cognac is golden. On the nose: Strong, spices, an idea of tobacco notes. This cognac is coherent: The palate rather strong as well, dominated by dried fruit aromas, again spices. You may want to taste this Cognac with a splash of not-to-cold water, or an ice cube. Must be the right drink after a dinner with fruits de mer; a great combination.

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.
