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.
