Camus ‘Family Legacy’ Cognac
As Cyril Camus often says, a great Cognac is born of a father, a grandfather and a great-grandfather who were able to pass on an ancient culture of the art of distillation and aging, whilst each adding our own personal touch. Family Legacy is the latest addition to the Camus family. The most remarkable feature of this Cognac is the way its creators methodically, patiently and subtly adhered to the ancestral rules of perfect blending, a legacy of five generations of accumulated expertise, recorded for posterity in notebooks since the 19th century. 8 consecutive blends are required to produce Family Legacy and thus attain the perfect degree of 40.8% vol.
This amber Cognac with sparkling hints of gold captivates with its velvety, complex aromas of tangerine, violet and oak, which notes reminiscent of haute couture perfume. Rich and generous on the palate, the enticing hints of creme brulee expand to reveal a long, complex bouquet of dried fruit notes and a lingering, balanced finish.
Deeply attached to their Cognac land, the five generations of Camus family have succeeded Since 1863 in faithfully preserving the brand’s original values. This process of handing down from father to son now ensures the continuity and development of a unique expertise, with the cornerstones remaining the soil, the vine and the grape.
As well as a love and respect for the fruit of the land, the Camus culture is based on innovation and the quest for exceptional aromatic qualities – for above and beyond their role as businessmen the Camus’s see themselves as winegrowers, explorers and passionate lovers of taste.
Laid across 180 hectares in the smallest and rarest AOC cru – the Borderies – the Camus family has always been deeply involved in winemaking and distilling. It is this unbreakable bond between the land, the traditions and the people who live on it that helps them craft superb Cognacs. Today, it is Cyril Camus who is the bearer of all family tradition and oversees the undisputed quality of Camus Cognac. Export development and product development remain at the top, with a passion for innovation. Cyril Camus has entirely modernized the Cognac house’s interiors, relying on a fresh new take on Cognac for the new century.
