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 their own personal touch. CAMUS owes its international reputation to the richness and extreme subtlety of flavor found in its Cognacs, offering a complexity that appeals to all the senses. The demanding work undertaken by the cellar master to perpetuate this unique style is based on the blending of eaux-de-vie from different crus and of different ages, requiring a combination of technical virtuosity, inspiration and intuition. The cellar master’s quest for perfect harmony gives rise to a painstaking selection process, with the choices made according to the flavor desired for each creation: floral or fruity notes, how well the crus complement each other, barrel selection and achieving the perfect balance.
A bold and rich expression of Extra,Starting with a simple idea in mind – to create a BOLD and INTENSE expression of Extra – Cyril CAMUS asked the Cellar Master Patrick Léger to select the best barrels of Extra Cognac to follow a special ageing process
The chosen barrels are emptied of their precious Cognac and returned to the Master Cooper to be opened and toasted again, one by one, to boost their full aromatic potential. This re-toasting process is tailor-made, barrel by barrel
The Extra Cognac is then returned to these casks for a special finishing phase that has been named “Dark & Intense”. Gradually, the structure of the eaux-de-vie and the enhanced flavors of the cask merge together harmoniously
Rich and spicy, this Cognac emerges as a ″one-of-a-kind″ expression of Extra. A strong and emblematic design: golden screw cap and collar to symbolize flames and glossy black decanter, evocative of the intense character of this Extra. A beautiful gift box that displays and enhances its precious content to make an exquisite gift. The ultimate gift to oneself or to the most passionate and demanding of connoisseurs, enjoyed at any time.
