Discover Camus VSOP Borderies Single Estate Cognac:

Camus VSOP Borderies Single Estate Cognac is a remarkable expression of the terroir from which it hails, the smallest and most sought-after of the Cognac crus, Borderies. This single-estate cognac is crafted entirely from grapes grown on the Camus family’s own vineyards, a rarity in an industry where blending is commonplace.

The spirit itself exhibits an alluring golden hue, indicative of its time spent maturing in French oak barrels. On nosing, one can discern a complex bouquet of floral notes intermingled with hints of honey and ripe fruit – a testament to the Ugni Blanc grapes that form its base.

Upon tasting, this VSOP (Very Superior Old Pale) cognac reveals its true character. The initial palate offers a harmonious blend of vanilla and plum undertones followed by subtle hints of hazelnut and almond – flavors derived from both the grape varietal and oak barrel aging process. The finish is long-lasting with an elegant touch of spice that lingers pleasantly.

What sets Camus VSOP Borderies Single Estate Cognac apart is not just its unique origin or meticulous production process but also its versatility as a drink. It can be savored neat to fully appreciate its complexity or used as an exquisite base for cocktails.

Cognac Varieties

Cognac is a kind of brandy named after the town of Cognac in the French province of Charente-Maritime. Wine from the neighboring wine-growing area, Charente and Maritime, is used to make this liqueur.

Cognac production is governed by the French appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) designation, with certain production techniques and naming criteria that must be followed in order to maintain AOC status. Ugni blanc, often known as Saint-Émilion in the region, is the most commonly planted of the grapes on the list. Two distillations in copper pot stills are required, as is an aging period of at least two years in French oak barrels from the Limousin or Tronçais regions of France. While cognac develops in the same manner as whiskies and wines do in barrels, the majority of cognacs spend much more time "on the wood" than the statutory minimum amount of time.

Cognac has often humorously been described as "nearly undrinkable" because of the dryness, acidity, and thinness of the white wine used in the production of cognac. Despite this, the wine is ideal for distillation and maturing. A limited number of grape varietals are permitted to be used in its production. For a wine to be deemed a genuine cru, it must contain at least 90 percent Ugni blanc as its primary grape. It is necessary to ferment for 2–3 weeks after the grapes have been crushed, during which time the region's natural, wild yeasts transform the sugar into alcohol; neither sugar nor sulfur may be added. The resultant wine has about 7 to 8 percent alcohol at this stage.

Once the distilling process is complete, it is aged in Limousin oak barrels for a minimum of two years before it may be sold to the general population. It is usually placed in barrels at an alcohol by volume level of about 70%. As the cognac interacts with the wood barrel and the surrounding air, it evaporates at a rate of about 3 percent per year, losing both alcohol and water over a period of time. This occurrence is referred to as "la portion des anges," which translates as "the angels' share" in the local language. When a cognac is aged for more than 10 years in an oak barrel, the alcohol level falls to 40 percent by volume. Once moved to huge glass bottles called bonbonnes, the cognac is kept for future blending purposes. Because oak barrels lose their ability to provide flavor after four or five decades, so aging them for extended periods of time may not be helpful.
