D’USSÉ® VSOP Cognac
Cognac /40% ABV / France
- Tasting Notes
- Honey, Nutty, Smooth, Spicy
Naturally aged at least four and a half years in the cellars of France's Château de Cognac, D’USSÉ™ VSOP Cognac emerges as a bold, full-bodied blend that arouses the palate. On the nose, it reveals a powerful bouquet, rich in woody notes that are layered with touches of cinnamon and floral notes. Distinctively and unexpectedly smooth, with each taste, you savor hints of spices, almond and cinnamon. Subtle accents of honey and dried fruits are the finale.View all products by D'usseCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING
D'usse VSOP Cognac is a new product from an old house. For over 200 years, master distillers have blended eau de vie at the Chateaur de Cognac on the Charente River.
This property is unique because of its two distinct cellars. One cellar maintains a constant 59 degrees and 90 percent humidity. The other is further from the water and drier. The humid cellar brings out the floral and airy nature of the spirit. The dry cellar draws out woody, spicy flavors.
After spending four and a half years between the two cellars, the result is complex and medium-bodied cognac. D'usse VSOP Cognac is not an overpowering giant, but it is not gentle and delicate, either.
The color is a rich, coppery amber. Waft a snifter of it under your nose. You'll detect fresh cut wood, blossoms, apricot and caramel. Take a sip and you'll taste almonds, honey, dried apricots and a touch of cinnamon. The finish is long and constantly developing, with the staying power of a great XO.
Certainly, it needs nothing more than a glass, but if you're feeling exotic, try The Code. Shake an ounce and a half of D'usse with an ounce of amaretto, another of pineapple juice and a dash of bitters. Strain it over the rocks with a lime wedge.
