Masterfully crafted in the cellars of the Chateau de Cognac – a home with a 200-year legacy of creating some of the world’s finest Cognacs –D’usse VSOP is a unique blend of meticulously hand-selected Eaux-de-vie aged 4 years or more, while XO is aged ten years or more.
D’USSE VSOP on the nose reveals a powerful bouquet, rich in woody notes that are layered with touches of cinnamon and floral notes while D’USSE XO is an uncompromising Cognac that delivers complex flavour notes of ripe blackberry and apricot, layered with hints of dark chocolate and walnut, culminating in an exceptionally balanced finish.
D’USSE Cognac bottle design is inspired by the liquid it contains; both classic and modern, and bearing the Cross of Lorraine – a symbol of honour, courage and perseverance used by the French resistance during World War II – a statement wherever it rests.
D’USSE cognac is the creation of a passionate artist and visionary, Maitre de Chai Michel Casavecchia, whose two decades of experience as curator at the Chateau de Cognac saw him create the D’USSE VSOP and D’USSE XO.
D’USSE Cognac is a partnership between Shawn ‘JAY-Z’ Carter and Bacardi where Carter leads the global strategy for the brand, with a clear vision to set a new standard for cognac around the globe. Cognac remains a key asset behind the bar, and D’USSE cognac remains the perfect blend to continue reinvigorating the category.
