Camus XO Bordaries is five generations of French romance distilled into a bottle — just in time for Valentine’s Day.

In 1863 Jean-Baptiste Camus founded a collective of producers that produced high quality Cognac under the name La Grande Marque. The business flourished and soon enough Jean-Baptiste bought out his partners to establish his own Cognac house, Camus La Grande Marque. The name gained fame, they even started supplying the court of the Russian Tsar Nicolas II.
 
Cherishing this 150 year-old tradition, the 5th generation of the family remains true to the heritage of providing different and intriguing Cognacs from all the Terroirs. This XO comes from the smallest cru, Borderies where the ancestral home of Camus family is. The limestone soil and ideal sun exposure of the Borderies terroir provides vines with ideal hydric balance.
 
Camus XO Borderies is aged in French oak barrels. The age of various Cognacs in the blend must be (by law) at least six years old, but in fact some of the Cognacs may be aged up to 30 years. A great XO that will bring a smile to the face of any Cognac aficionado.

Cognac is a form of distilled Brandy. For a spirit to be labeled Cognac, it must be made from specified grapes, of which Ugni Blanc is the one most widely used. It must be twice distilled in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels from Limousin or Tronçais.
There are six different wine-growing areas (crus) authorized to produce Cognac - in descending order of prestige: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, and Bois Ordinaires.
Cognac, named after the town of Cognac in France, is a variety of brandy (distilled wine). It is only produced in the wine-growing region surrounding this town. Cognac must be made from specified grapes, be twice distilled in copper pot stills, and be aged at least two years in French oak barrels. Most Cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement.
There are three different qualities of Cognac recognized by law: V.S. (very special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and X.O. (Extra Old).
Laws concerning Cognac-making are strict as hell. Only three types of grapes may be used, and they can only be harvested in October; Cognac must be aged for at least two years in barrels made from French oak - and get this, from one of two specific forests! Then, the stills must be of a particular French shape (no, not the baguette shape); and we guess La Marseillaise has to be sung during the entire process.
Believe it or not, the French aren’t all that fond of Cognac. In fact, they export nearly 90% of their production.
