NEW YORK, Sept. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CAMUS (pronunciation:  "Kah-moo"), the last independent, family-owned Cognac house and 5th largest worldwide, is proud to announce the release of an outstanding and unequalled range of Certified Single Vintage Cognacs.

The Pionneau 1969 Vintage is a very special expression from the House of Pionneau - which CAMUS took over in the late 1960s.

CAMUS has a worldwide reputation as the "ORFEVRE du Cognac" (Cognac Craftsman) and could only propose to real connoisseurs the most technically authentic and natural certified vintages. All of the Certified Single Vintage Cognacs are handcrafted and bottled straight from cask in limited and numbered series. The absence of additives and chill-filtering allows the expressions to maintain their natural character and aromas. Ranging in price from $280 - $1,250, the Certified Single Vintage Cognacs reinforce CAMUS' unceasing quest for perfection, while maintaining the high quality and distinct flavor profile the House is known for.

While each vintage presents a unique tasting experience, many qualities remain consistent. Each of CAMUS' Certified Single Vintage Cognacs offers: beautiful color ranging from a light yellow straw hue to a bold amber color with glints of gold, captivating aromas that are exceptionally concentrated and intense, and a taste profile that is diverse, remarkably smooth, and long- lasting.

CAMUS President, Cyril Camus, explains the inspiration for the launch: "Thanks to the exceptional experience of five generations producing superb Cognacs, CAMUS releases only the most carefully and rigorously selected eaux-de-vie. We are pleased to share these hidden treasures of the Cognac region with our consumers."
