Extra Elegance is an exceptional blend of eaux-de-vie primarily from the Borderies, Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne crus, all selected for their superb aging potential, richness and complementarity.
The Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie offer excellent length on the palate, those from Petite Champagne provide structure and the Borderies contribute a velvety texture and hints of sweet pastries. A long aging in cool, damp cellars allows Extra Elegance to reveal its full quality: exceptional roundness, intense flavors, great finesse and a remarkably complex finish.
This blend produces a Cognac which is as rich as it is sophisticated, and which will delight the most passionate and demanding of connoisseurs.
Extra Elegance is a true cascade of flavors: its complex, smooth texture has notes of dried violet, pastries, tobacco, leather and walnut, culminating in a pure velvet finish.
A true showcase for this exceptional Cognac, the Extra Elegance carafe was developed by Cyril CAMUS in order to create a sleek design that would showcase the cognac it protects.
The work undertaken by the whole team was recognized in 2007 with a Pentaward, a prestigious prize awarded to the most remarkable packaging designs. As well as the bottle shape, the modern materials chosen such as the brushed steel of the stopper and neck make this an absolutely timeless carafe.
Extra Elegance has clearly made a mark on Maison CAMUS and is a bold witness to our ‘living tradition’.
