New limited edition 

CAMUS Borderies VSOP...$48.99 / 750ml
With the majority of eaux-de-vie coming from the Domaines CAMUS, this Limited Edition VSOP is 100% single growth Borderies. Patrick LEGER, our Master Blender selected the most elegant eaux-de-vie exclusively from the Ugni Blanc grape, as it is known for its high aromatic potential and its finesse. These eaux-de-vie are distilled on the lees according to a procedure and a technique known only to CAMUS. A maximum of aroma is extracted during distillation by paying particular attention to the “coeur de chauffe”. Lastly, CAMUS VSOP BORDERIES LIMITED EDITION underwent a period of careful and closely-watched ageing in a dry cellar, then in progressively damper cellars, in order to preserve all the finesse and aromatic expression of the Borderies. 
Only 15 000 individually-numbered bottles


Fresh, lively, and smooth, CAMUS VS ELEGANCE reveals distinctive floral aromas and a fruity palate with a gentle vanilla finish. Perfect enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or as an excellent base for cocktails.
