D'Usse VSOP Cognac

SKU 03504


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.

Wine EnthusiastIntended for cocktail use, this VSOP has a deliberately brisk profile and powerful flavors: toffee, hazelnut, cocoa, oak and a dry, rather tannic finish that pulls up abruptly. Although this makes for rather rough sipping, when mixed with sweeteners and juices, that brusque profile becomes an asset for balancing out those ingredients.
