This amber Cognac with sparkling hints of gold captivates with its velvety, complex aromas of tangerine, violet and oak fading into labdanum (Mediterranean flower) notes reminiscent of haute couture perfume. Rich and generous on the palate, the enticing hints of creme brulee expand to reveal a long, complex bouquet of dried fruit notes and a lingering, balanced finish.

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. Family Legacy is the latest addition to the CAMUS family. The most remarkable feature of this Cognac is the way its creators methodically, patiently and subtly adhered to the ancestral rules of perfect blending, a legacy of five generations of accumulated expertise, recorded for posterity in notebooks since the 19th century. 8 consecutive blends are required to produce Family Legacy and thus attain the perfect degree of 40.8% vol.
Other text
Cellar notebooks, the true gems of the cognac houses, hold the memories of generations of cellar masters. They contain year after year of advice, and of course some distillation secrets. For example, since time immemorial CAMUS has followed the recommendations of Edmond and Gaston CAMUS which suggest aging in fine-grained, pale-colored barrels to attain the required degree of perfection. It is this patiently accumulated expertise which finally gave life to Family Legacy.

Deeply attached to their Cognac land, the five generations of CAMUS family have succeeded in faithfully preserving the brandís original values. This process of handing down from father to son now ensures the continuity and development of a unique expertise, with the cornerstones remaining the soil, the vine and the grape. As well as a love and respect for the fruit of the land, the CAMUS culture is based on innovation and the quest for exceptional aromatic qualities Ė for above and beyond their role as businessmen the CAMUSís see themselves as winegrowers, explorers and passionate lovers of taste. The fact that the CAMUS family home le Plessis lies at the heart of the highly sought-after Borderies cru is proof of this special attachment to the Cognac region. The CAMUS family is today the largest landowner in the Cognac Borderies appellation. This specific character is down to the vision of Jean-Paul CAMUS, who identified the taste potential of the regionís different terroirs at a very early stage. Guided more by his own intuition than by passing trends, he chose to develop the generally overlooked Cognac cru of Borderies and allow its flavors to shine across the world.
