Camus Instant of Intensity XO Cognac
Aged for at least ten years, this single estate Borderies expression represents a fantastic example of XO Cognac, with lavish fruity notes, florals and spice. The eaux-de-vie used for the Camus Instant of Intensity XO Cognac have been uniquely distilled with the ‘intensity’ method at House of Camus, where they select the most aromatic litres of the heads during the second distillation.
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.
