A fantastic Cognac from De Luze. The company was first established as an importer of Cognac and wine into New York. They later began to purchase land in Cognac to ensure a steady supply of good quality spirit, and now owns over 430 hectares of vineyards in the region. This smartly packaged bottle contains only spirit distilled from grape from the Petit Champagne cru, and as this is a VSOP, this spirit is at least four years old, yet some of this Cognac is 12 years old, making for a tremendous balance of flavour. This is a wonderful example of VSOP Cognac, with excellent poise between the fruity spirit and the oaky cask. Burst notes of almond, citrus peel and woodspice ensure that this is a flavoursome option, ideal for after dinner drinking. This Cognac has picked up a string of awards in recent years, winning Gold at the 2013 Agricultural Show of Paris, Gold at the International Vinalies Wine Competition of 2012, and Silver at the 2011 World Selection of Spirits.
