This CAMUS 1988 Fins Bois boasts considerable elegance and restraint.
Despite difficult weather conditions with a late flowering period, mainly due to the wet winter with its incessant rain, the grapes reached sufficient ripeness and complexity resulting in a sensory Cognac, ideal for a moment of pure contemplation.
The magical moment of tasting calls on all the senses to savour its delicious aromas of spring herbs, fruits and flowers, wild honey, spices and precious wood.
With this Fins Bois Cognac, all the character provided by distillation exclusively in stills of 2,500 liters enhances the intense lemony and floral freshness of wines that have undergone batonnage (stirring of the lees).
Aromas of grape, blackcurrant and redcurrant mingle together in perfect harmony.
Caramel, honey and a few woody notes emerge, witha note of caramelized pear.
|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.
