CAMUS announces release of the 2015 edition of its Borderies range

By Wendy Morley

Each year, CAMUS releases a limited-edition Borderies selection

CAMUS, which has a long history with Borderies, the smallest and rarest cru in the Cognac AOC. Every year, a new batch of this VSOP is released in numbered bottles. The 2015 Edition unveils this year fresh and tasty notes of vanilla pods and orange peel, within a hint of sweet and floral spice.   

For over 150 years, CAMUS has nurtured a bond with the Borderies region of Cognac. Throughout five generations the family has gradually acquired plots of land in this region until now the House of CAMUS one of the largest landowners in the Borderies cru, with over 180 hectares of Ugni Blanc, Colombard and Folle Blanche vineyards. Today CAMUS is the only major House to propose a complete Borderies range of eaux-de-vie, produced almost entirely from their own vineyards.

The House premiered its first ever 100% Borderies XO Cognac in the year 2000, to great success, and each year a new limited edition is released in numbered bottles. 

Tradition has it that the name Borderies used to refer to old farms in the Charente with square courtyards surrounded by drystone walls. The Borderies Appellation is the smallest of the six Cognac growth areas, representing 5% of the total Cognac AOC and accounting for its rareness.  Land in the area is divided up into numerous properties, each one jealously guarded. Guided by the vision of Jean-Paul CAMUS - meticulous and passionate winemaker who right from the start saw all the potential of this terroir – and thanks to successive acquisitions, the House of CAMUS has become one of the largest landowners in the Borderies cru.
