While remaining true to the ancestral methods of the blending of the liquid, this unique eau de vie incorporates both a traditional and new approach to cognac. It has distinct character from the American oak, with delicate tropical flavors of coconut and pineapple, which blends beautifully with the French oak flavors of vanilla, cocoa and nuts.
The Borderies cru is not just the smallest, but it is above all, the most sought-after of all the Cognac AOC growth areas.
Home to the CAMUS family and very close to its heart, the Borderies cru provides the vines with the perfect amount of water, thanks to the chalky soil and ideal exposure.
As a tribute to the CAMUS family’s chosen land, the Borderies cru is expressed through magnificently balanced grapes, capturing the characteristic aroma of violets that denote eaux-de-vie from the area
Creating CAMUS XO Elegance requires years of meticulous work. The process starts with the careful selection of different styles of hugely rich eaux-de-vie from all six of the Cognac crus (Borderies, Petite Champagne, Bons Bois, Grande Champagne, Fins Bois, Bois à Terroirs).
The presence of the Borderies cru among these eaux-de-vie gives the Cognac a rounder flavor and greater aromatic length. Long aging in cool, damp cellars ensures that each barrel gains a perfect level of maturity. A meticulous blending process finally reveals the Cognac’s personality in all its glory: a myriad of complex, harmonious aromas.
Best enjoyed in a tulip glass, either straight or mixed with a dash of mineral water. A serving temperature of 17-20°C is recommended to fully appreciate XO Elegance.
A bold and rich expression of Extra, starting with a simple idea in mind – to create a Bold and Intense expression of Extra – Cyril Camus asked the Cellar Master Patrick Léger to select the best barrels of Extra Cognac to follow a special aging process. The chosen barrels are emptied of their precious cognac and returned to the Master Cooper to be opened and toasted again, one by one, to boost their full aromatic potential. This re-toasting process is tailor-made, barrel by barrel. The Extra Cognac is then returned to these casks for a special finishing phase that has been named “Dark & Intense”. Gradually, the structure of the eaux-de-vie and the enhanced flavors of the cask merge together harmoniously. Rich and spicy, this cognac emerges as a ″ one-of-a-kind ″ expression of Extra. A strong and emblematic design: golden screw cap and collar to symbolize flames and glossy black decanter, evocative of the intense character of this extra. A beautiful gift box that displays and enhances its precious content to make an exquisite gift. The ultimate gift to oneself or to the most passionate and demanding of connoisseurs, enjoyed at any time.
Extra Elegance is an exceptional blend of eaux-de-vie primarily from the Borderies, Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne crus, all selected for their superb aging potential, richness and complementarity.
The Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie offer excellent length on the palate, those from Petite Champagne provide structure and the Borderies contribute a velvety texture and hints of sweet pastries. A long aging in cool, damp cellars allows Extra Elegance to reveal its full quality: exceptional roundness, intense flavors, great finesse and a remarkably complex finish.
This blend produces a Cognac which is as rich as it is sophisticated, and which will delight the most passionate and demanding of connoisseurs.
This is a cognac made using grapes grown on the Île de Ré, a tiny island in the Atlantic ocean, off the the coast of Cognac and lying in the Bois à Terroirs/Bois Ordinaires cru. This release enjoys a second maturation in the Fort de La Prée, an imposing star-shaped fort, situated very close to the shoreline – hence the Cognac’s name. This gives the cognac a distinct maritime quality, which pairs excellently well with the sweetness of the grape and the darker, woody notes of the French oak cask
Camus’ Ile De Ré Fine Island Cognac is distilled and matured on the eponymous island; the proximity to the ocean imparts a maritime, subtly salty character quite different to most Cognacs. This is a fine match for fish dishes.
Chateau de Montifaud XO Cognac is a rather light and smooth extra old cognac created solely from eaux-de-vie grown in Petite Champagne. A fresh, non-tannic cognac, mellow with hints of almonds and aromas of dried fruits. A cognac much appreciated by the ladies, thanks to it’s light, fresh taste.
Courvoisier Cognac has announced the launch of Courvoisier Avant-Garde Bourbon Cask Edition, a spirit drink produced from Courvoisier VS liquid and finished in Kentucky Bourbon casks. The Bourbon Cask Edition is the first expression to be released in what will be an ongoing series of Avant-Garde limited time offerings.
Courvoisier Avant-Garde Bourbon Cask Edition is bottled at 40% ABV (80 proof) and is described as having aromas of “vanilla, honey and sweet marmalade notes” and “soft smoky leather and sweet orange notes” on the palate, transitioning to an “elegant and soft velvety finish” of “warming expressions of vanilla crème and caramel followed by soft smoky leather.”
The artistry behind the blending of this complex cognac brings out its signature old port, prune, and orange blossom notes. The maturity of the blends from the Grande and Petite Champagne crus, matured up to 20 years, has made Courvoisier Napoleon Fine Champagne Cognac the classic reference for connoisseurs.
Courvoisier Sherry Cask Finish begins with an initial blend of liquid that is aged for two to eight years. It is then matured in French limousin oak casks, before it undergoes a second maturation in Sherry casks for a period of at least four months. Courvoisier specifically selected Sherry casks from Southern Spain for their color, intensity and rich sherry notes. The Cognac produces a harmony of toasted almond and honey top notes, with extra rich dried fruit notes and a long-lingering finish.
