CAMUS COGNAC ÎLE DE RÉ FINE ISLAND (40%)
Fresh, marine notes, for a perfect expression of the authentic style and qualities of Île de Ré Cognacs.
CAMUS has always drawn upon all of the Charente region’s diverse terroirs, with the aim of revealing the richness and flavors these different areas have to offer. In this constant quest, the discovery of the vineyards of the Île de Ré was a genuine revelation. Île de Ré is found off the west coast of France in the Charente-Maritime department.
Situated in the Bois à Terroirs cru, the island is the most westerly region of the Cognac appellation. With its fresh, marine notes, CAMUS Île de Ré Fine Island is a perfect expression of the authentic style and qualities of its area of provenance. The grapes have naturally higher iodine content than those harvested on the mainland. In addition, the island’s mild climate helps to bestow a truly individual character on the eaux-de-vie it produces.
