Founded in 1863, Camus is the largest Cognac house to still be entirely family-owned. For five generations, the Camus family has worked with boundless passion and patience to craft remarkable Cognacs capable of inspiring rare, intense emotions. Today Cyril Camus is the guardian of this rich heritage, maintaining the ancestral commitment to excellence and affirming the distinctive style of Camus Cognacs.\nIn the 1970s Michel Camus conceived and created a new style of cognac for him and his friends and named it Camus Extra. A new standard for luxury cognac was born and up to this day, it still maintains a leader position in the Extra category.\nThe Camus Extra Elegance today is an exceptional blend of very rare eaux-de-vie mainly from vineyards of Borderies, Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne, all selected for their superb ageing potential and intense aromatic flavors. \nThe presence in the blend of the precious old Borderies Cognacs from the smallest growing area and dear to the heart of Camus, enhances the sophisticated, smooth aroma. \nAfter optimum ageing condition in cool, damp cellars, Camus Extra Elegance develops intense aromatic flavors with dominating dry fruits and a complex texture of sweet notes of dried violets, pastries, tobacco, leather and walnut, which culminate in a velvety final.
