|NEW YORK, Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — CAMUS (pronunciation: “Kah-moo”), the largest independent, family-owned Cognac house and 5th largest worldwide, is proud to announce their latest work of art, Family Legacy. Appropriately named, Family Legacy stands as a tribute to the combined experience of five generations of the CAMUS Family. It is a rich and sumptuous blend of five crus, married step by step in eight stages to create the exquisite offering. Available nationwide beginning in October, Family Legacy is priced at $1299 and comes housed in an exceptional decanter and contemporary gift box.
Family Legacy is a feast for the senses and embodies what five generations of the CAMUS Family like to call: “the Finer Things in Life.” Five crus, each from Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Bon Bois, Fin Bois and the famous Borderies, are blended perfectly in eight consecutive steps to bring Family Legacy to life. The expression adheres to the ancestral rules of perfect blending – a legacy of past expertise recorded in the cellar master’s “cahier de coupe” for posterity since the 19th century. Aged in French oak barrels, each step takes approximately three months to ensure a perfect and subtle integration of all aromas. These five crus are blended from the youngest to the oldest to ensure the most homogeneous and delicate possible match. To reach its peak, Family Legacy must attain the perfect strength of 40.8% vol.
