Tasting review

Eye: Luminous amber color.

Nose: Light, soft, floral nose, with a nutty character. Rose petals and jasmine. Delicate.

Palate: An initial spice, yet warms up palate in a soft way, with a long lasting licorice finish. Gentle floral notes, with a potpourri character. Well rounded and gentle.

Description

Camus Extra Old Elegance Cognac

A myriad of flavors and aromas in every sense of the word, the Camus XO Elegance is a carefully crafted and rich Cognac with eaux-de-vie from all six of the terroirs. Many years of craftsmanship are required to create a Cognac of this quality. Dating back to 1863, this Cognac hails from one of the oldest owned Cognac houses in the entire region, which makes it extra unique as an XO. As an Extra Old Cognac, it is aged in Limousin oak barrels and alembic copper stills, and the eaux-de-vie are selected from the Fine Champagne terroirs, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, Bois à Terroirs and highly coveted Borderies region. Such a diverse blend of various eaux-de-vie indicates the sheer expertise that goes into blending a bottle of this caliber. It has also cinched a number of awards for its fantastic assemblage, and floral, fruity character.

The signature of the Camus Cognac maison is the rare and highly sought-after eaux-de-vie descending from the Borderies region, which gives their Cognac the highly desirable aromatic length and rounded quality that many desire. The XO Elegance is a fine blend of many eaux-de-vie, but those from the Borderies give it that signature feel.

The process of maturation for the XO Elegance which is carefully overseen by the Master Blender at Camus Cognac is a honed craft. The humidity level in the cellar is kept high initially, and then over time is decreased. This gives this XO the particular roundness that Cognac lovers enjoy.

How to enjoy Camus XO Elegance

The Extra Old Elegance from Camus Cognac is best served in a tulip glass, to really bring out the color and aromas. Enjoy it straight, or with a splash of mineral water. It is best enjoyed between 17 and 20 degrees Celsius. Presentation The XO Elegance decanter is smooth, rounded and curvaceous, and will look really great placed in your drinks cabinet. It arrives in a chic black box.

My husband and I visited Camus while on a trip to France. Being able to enjoy this wonderful cognac, knowing the history and quality was a great opportunity. Camus cognac is a wonderful treat.


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. 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.
