When it comes to the experts in Borderies cognacs, Camus have to be top of the tree. Having spent over a century and a half purchasing and tending vines in this region, they are now one of the largest owners of land in the terroir, boasting 180 hectares in total.
The house has now released the latest in its line of wholly Borderies cognacs – the Camus Rarissimes 2004 Cognac. Said to be the only Borderies vintage cognac on the market, Cellar Master, Patrick Leger’s creation is made from 100% Ugni Blanc grapes. In addition, the cognac is the product of a year that produced an exceptional harvest, thanks to mild temperatures in the spring that was favorable to consistent development of the vines. According to Camus, this has meant a superbly balanced cognac full of aroma, personality, and finesse.
The tasting notes from Camus say:
Color – Bright gold with amber tints
Nose – The violet notes precisely evoke the prestigious Borderies cru, with a delicate touch of oak floating over the aromatic palate.
Palate – Intense and dynamic, it floods the palate offering wonderful freshness.
The cost of the Camus Rarissimes Borderies 2004 Cognac is 490 euros/ $590 US dollars per bottle.
