Camus Vintage 1972 Pionneau Cognac Millesime
Luminous orangey hue with delicate, intense golden tints. Extremely fine in the first nose of dried fruits, the aromas are harmoniously complex __ between floral and fruity – developing towards candied fruit with an underlying oakiness, spiced with ginger and nutmeg hints. Well balanced and constantly offering new discoveries with flavors of cedar wood, vanilla and caramelized orange, leading into a very rounded finish.
The latest batch bearing the Pionneau by CAMUS stamp perfectly expresses the pure, shimmering light reflected by the chalky soils of Petite Champagne. Distilled in Boutiers St Trojan and aged in casks nos. 289163 and 289164, this 1972 vintage Petite Champagne Cognac was selected in January 2013 by our Cellar Master, Patrick Leger. At 43.8% vol., it combines elegance and balance in an intense concentration of aromas, partly thanks to 41 years ageing alternately in dry cellars and damp cellars. The golden tints of this cognac conceal a magnificent, delicate balance between the rancio of the Petite Champagne cru and subtle, exotic spices.
