Creating CAMUS XO Elegance requires years of meticulous work. The process starts with the careful selection of different styles of hugely rich eaux-de-vie from all six of the Cognac crus (Borderies, Petite Champagne, Bons Bois, Grande Champagne, Fins Bois, Bois à Terroirs). The presence of the Borderies cru among these eaux-de-vie gives the Cognac a rounder flavor and greater aromatic length. Long aging in cool, damp cellars ensures that each barrel gains a perfect level of maturity. A meticulous blending process finally reveals the Cognac’s personality in all its glory: a myriad of complex, harmonious aromas.

Tasting notes: Bright amber appearance. A wide spectrum of flavours develop on the palate, where fresh and candied fruit notes (apricot, citrus fruit) intermingle with touches of honey, chocolate, almond and hazelnut. Subtle hints of oak and vanilla emerge in the lingering aromatic finish.
Serving: Best enjoyed in a tulip glass, either straight or mixed with a dash of mineral water. A serving temperature of 17-20°C is recommended to fully appreciate XO Elegance.
Eaux-de-vie aging, conducted under the watchful eye of the cellar master, requires a great deal of patience and attention to detail. The same applies to the conditions in which these eaux-de-vie are aged, enabling complex tertiary aromas to develop over the years.
CAMUS XO Elegance enjoys a special aging process in cellars where the initially high moisture level is gradually decreased, a technique which has an impact on the mature cognac’s style and roundness.
