Camus VSOP ÈléganceVSOP Élégance is a fruity, rich, mild, sophisticated cognac. For this composition, Maison Camus selected fruity eaux de vie, partially distilled with the lees, including some from the Borderies in order to increase the sophistication of this cognac after ageing. The rich, mellow flavor and delicate woody notes are obtained after ageing in fine-grain oak casks with little tannin. This procedure preserves the original aromas of the eaux de vie and gives the cognac its harmonious balance.
Tasting notes: Floral jasmine aromas mingled with subtle, mellow notes of yellow fruit and a few paler touches of oak and vanilla.

"This smooth Cognac offers an array of rich, downright luxe aromas: caramel apples, floral honey, Sauternes, dried fruit. The flavors start with a flash of sweetness and alcohol bite, fading into a long, pretty finish of apple and maple sugar candy. Medium body, pleasantly tongue-coating feel. Try pairing with dark chocolate."
