The blend of Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Bon Bois cognacs are presented in a Baccarat crystal decanter designed by French sculptor, Serge Mansau. This in turn nests inside a wooden case enrobed in the finest, hand stitched Italian leather, and the decanter itself is sealed with a delicate leather lace and finished off with a 24 carat gold clover leaf.
The tasting notes declare an excellent balance suggestive of citrus fruits, prunes and delicate wood undertones, with wood and freshness providing a clear contrast on the palate. A long finish evokes tones of jasmine, spice, dried fruit and a hint of lemon
The cognacs that have gone into creating Cuvée 3.140 include a 65 year old guaranteed minimum age Grande Champagne, a 39 year old (guaranteed minimum aged) Petite Champagne and a 36 year old (guaranteed minimum age) Bons Bois. The latter comes from Camus cellars number 3 and provides the delicate balance between finesse and strength.
The Camus Cognac Cuvée 3.140 Masterpiece Collection will be issued in a strictly limited edition of 950 numbered decanters.
