Camus VS Cognac is part of the core range of cognacs from the largest family-owned cognac house. All cognacs from the house include at least some eaux-de-vie from the Borderies region. The VS is part of its collection of intensely aromatic cognacs. The wines are distilled on the lees and a technique called "Instensity" is used in the distillation process where the "heads" that present the best aromatic qualities are selected rather than being redistilled and set aside. The eaux-de-vie is matured in small, lightly toasted fine grain French oak. Aged a minimum of 2 years.

Tasting Notes

"Fragrant with ripe fruits - apples, pears and crushed grapes -underneath a layer of vanilla, caramel and ground walnuts. A light and carefully oaked brandy giving off scents of jasmine, black pepper and roasted fruit, this expression is delicately light, not too sweet nor manipulated to appeal to the mass market. Over all an outstanding VS Cognac. "
