Cognac De Luze XO 1 l
The De Luze XO Cognac captivates connoisseurs with its complex flavor, caused by the aging in oak barrels and the oldest Cognac in the blend being about 20 years old
Cognac is a special superior brandy originating from the city of Cognac in France from the adjoining vineyards in the region Charante or Charante-Maritime. The name Cognac has been protected since 1920, so the name "Cognac" cannot be a synonym for brandy - similar to brandy, tequila or champagne.
Overall the extra old De Luze XO Cognac presents a gentle and refreshing side. Both the smell and the taste are harmoniously balanced. Especially true Cognac connoisseurs can from the scent of the blended De Luze XO Cognac notes perceive aromas of wild herbs and dried fruit. Palate typical spicy Cognac flavors come to the fore which mingle with light floral and fresh and fruity notes.
Likewise orange peel and nuts mix with the different flavors that combine with sweet honey and soft vanilla. Come and enjoy the fruity impacts combined with flavors of decedent white marzipan. The oak notes of the maturity stage can be recovered in the taste. Although this score is one of the dominant notes it blends almost perfectly with the rest of the flavors. With its medium length but intense leaving the De Luze XO Cognac shows again before the flavor evaporates slowly from its strong side.
The award-winning De Luze Cognac house was founded by two brothers born in New York. They set off to France in the early 19th century and endeavored to produce a light and natural Cognac which they did quite successfully. France has for years been the Cognac country par excellence.
Not only national but also international awards honor the De Luze Cognacs. For this reason the family run company has kept the recipes and production processes secret because so many competitive distilleries secure promotion to the category of exclusive spirits. For the production of the double-distilled De Luze XO Cognac, Cognacs from all recognized French regions are used.
Cognacs from the Petite Champagne regions, Grande Champagne and Borde rice are used for the De Luze spirits. For the maturing phase of all the Cognacs of the prestigious house noble French oak barrels are used which contribute to their end products indescribable character, flavour and light amber color.
The silky and refined De Luze XO Cognac is ideal for the pure pleasure of a relaxed weekend and is especially perfect to drink over the colder months. The De Luze XO Cognac also makes a splendid gift for friends and acquaintances.
