Camus Cognac which we had earlier in the form of the Cuvee 2.105 limited edition decanter, will now be seen as the 4th face of the series of premium offerings with the Cuvee 3.140 cognac, unveiled 2012 TFWA Asia Pacific Show. The limited edition cognac of which only 950 pieces will ever be seen in the market, has been a specimen of the rarest varieties bought together by Cyril Camus for the best of connoisseurs out there. Bottled in a specially crafted Baccarat crystal decanter, the coveted beverage brings 65 years of experience within the space of one vessel, which incidentally is a the craftsmanship of noted French sculptor, Serge Mansau .
When describing the aesthetics of the package, the simplest way is sophistication. Each of the numbered 950 packages has been prepared with handcrafted wood presentation case, which has then been covered with muted cream colored Italian leather. The buckle for the handle and the belt have been covered with 24-carat yellow gold, something which been used to seal the carved Baccarat crystal decanter. Like beverage inside, the packaging by itself sends out a strong message to convey how elite and premium this is.
Talking of the cognac, it comprises of 3 separate vintages to create the perfectly smooth blend. The 3.140 contains the 65-year old Grande champagne which is known to be elegant with rounded finishing of tannin as well as a balanced after taste. Next is the 39-year old Petite champagne, which is rather soft, and light in texture. It pairs with the grande variety to let out flavorings of cedar, almonds, toast, and fruits. The last component of the 3.140 cognac, is the 36-year old Bons Bois that is also known to balance out the 2 other contrasts to a median after effect. A true collector’s item to behold!
