Review: Camus Borderies VSOP Cognac
Camus Borderies VSOP Cognac is a Limited Edition cognac crafted in 2014 by Cellar Master Patrick Leger. Camus can trace its history back to 1863 when Jean-Baptiste Camus organized a consortium of cognac producers under the name La Grande Marque. For five generations the Camus family has worked with boundless passion and patience to craft remarkable cognac. The wine used to create Camus Borderies VSOP comes from a blend of white grapes, primarily Ugni Blanc Grapes, predominantly grown on the Camus family’s own Borderies vineyards. Borderies cru is the smallest of the six winegrowing regions of Cognac. The Camus family is the largest land owner in the Borderies appellation, where le Plessis, their family home lies. To achieve a delicate balance between scientific precision and artistic flair the master distiller crafted a subtle blend of wines, some with and some without lees. The eaux-de-vie is aged for a minimum of 4 years in Limousin oak barrels prior to blending. The aroma is apple, cinnamon, vanilla, caramel, and peach with a subtle oak backing. The juicy fruit entry has spiced apple, grape, and orange flavor. Vanilla arrives and continues through the semi dry, silky smooth, peach, grape, and lightly oaked and spiced finish. Camus Borderies VSOP Cognac is a very tasty full fruit flavored cognac.
