This smooth Cognac offers an array of rich, downright luxe aromas: caramel apples, floral honey, Sauternes, dried fruit. The flavors start with a flash of sweetness and alcohol bite, fading into a long, pretty finish of apple and maple sugar candy. Medium body, pleasantly tongue-coating feel. Try pairing with dark chocolate.
Celebrating a living tradition five generation strong, Camus reflects today over 155 years of entrepreneurship, testified by the milestones of a family legacy which has marked every succession with crucial passages.
Camus is a family business with an international attitude, driven by the passion and dedication of its people who strive to create products of the highest quality and splendor.

The Camus vineyards are part of a magnificent estate of 280 hectares (691 acres), located in the best area within the Borderies Cru, in the very heart of the Cognac appellation. Borderies is the oldest and smallest cru in the appellation, representing less than 5% of the cognac AOC. 188 hectares (464 acres) of this estate are cultivated with grapes, surrounded by forests and naturally preserved areas, representing the largest extension of vineyards belonging to one single producer within the Cru.
The family ensures that the vineyards are cultivated in a sophisticated and responsible manner, allowing the fields to accumulate organic matter, while preserving the wildlife in the surrounding environment.
Camus is driven by the passion and dedication of its people who strive to create products of the highest quality and splendor. They take the greatest care with both flavors and design. They are genuinely dedicated to the finest things in life and universal refinement.
Widely regarded as the finest and most complex grape-based spirit in the world, Cognac follows rigorously strict production guidelines. It is made exclusively of wine—most commonly from Ugni Blanc—from the Charente and Charente-Maritime regions surrounding the town of Cognac in southwestern France. After a second distillation in antique copper pot stills (called charentais), the spirit is transferred to French oak barrels and aged a minimum of two years (VS). Cognac is classified by both age and region (Cru). The Grande Champagne Cru and Petite Champagne Cru, both having shallow limestone soils, are the most respected.
