A new masterpiece for your collection: the Cuvée 4.186 ELECTRUM

At the heart of the House of CAMUS, Les Ateliers Camus is the birthplace of the rarest and most exclusive cognacs. The Cuvée 4.186, is the seventh of its generation, and combines excellence and rarity. In 15 years, only six editions of numbered crystal decanters have been produced, in very limited quantities.

Combining floral, gourmet, fruity and spicy cognacs, Julie Landreau our Cellar Master creates her recipes with meticulous care. Each drop is carefully measured and blended, so that the most expressive and exceptional cognacs are born; a sine qua non condition for the creation of our Cuvées.

To enhance this unique marriage, Cyril Camus wanted to highlight the long history of the terroir where the family business has grown since 1863, spanning the centuries and linking the past and the present.

The cultivation of vines in the Borderies dates back to Gallo-Roman times, when men and women, goods and electrum coins circulated on the Via Agrippa.

It is therefore quite natural that the goldsmiths of the Ateliers Camus, in collaboration with French artisans, have designed a box that opens along a line reproducing the route of the Via Agrippa, from Lyon to Saintes. Making the bold choice to mix several materials, here metal, a material that serves modernity, meeting crystaland stone, ancestral materials par excellence.

Discover a unique cuvée

This Cuvée, the seventh of its kind, is christened 4.186, a marriage of four powerful, complex yet elegant eaux-de- vies. The mysterious 186 in its name represents the sum of the years these cognacs have aged.

This year, as never before, we touch the empyrean where the gods dwell. Our Cuvée 4.186 is the rarest ever, produced as only 315 numbered decanters marked with the emblematic “Electrum”.

Electrum, like the alloy of gold and silver used by the Romans to mint their currency. Called green gold, when it is produced by human hands, the alloy is composed of 58.3% gold, 32.5% silver, 9% copper and 0.2% zinc. Using this composition as a guide, Julie Landreau, our Cellar Master, has created a unique composition whose proportions are similar to those of the precious alloy.

The magnificent amber color with golden reflections suggests the personality of this unique marriage, free from artificial enhancements.


The nose is complex and rich, revealing notes of walnut and dried fruits. Then come gourmet buttery notes accompanied by rancio for an exceptional journey of the nose.  

On the palate, the rounded encounter of this marriage of four cognacs gives way to notes of wood and spices, and offers us a remarkable length in the mouth to prolong this historical sensory journey.

A setting & a decanter

A timeless icon of the House of CAMUS, this BACCARATdecanter designed by the sculpteur Serge Manseau reveals its curves and angular edges. Adorned with a golden fret that is reminiscent of the glitter of electrum, it is enhanced by a crystal stopper engraved in fine gold with the topographical curves of the plots of land that surround the family estate of La Gîte. The case of the Cuvée 4.186 Electrum is embellished with a stone face engraved with a quotation from Virgil (70-19 BC).
