About d’Ussé Cognac VSOP
D’Ussé VSOP is made from a blend of eaux-de-vie from the four of the Cognac crus: the Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, and Fins Bois. The youngest of the eaux-de-vie in the blend is at least four years old. Naturally aged in the Château de Cognac cellars.
This VSOP is a bold flavored, full-bodied, aromatic blend with a lot of complexity. It features woody and spicy cinnamon tones from its aging in dry cellars, followed by a smooth round finish, which is due largely in part to the humid aging conditions. This is a balanced blend of eaux-de-vie from numerous cellars of the chateau, which come together to form a truly harmonious Cognac. D’Ussé VSOP is bottled in an elegant vile, emblazoned with a medieval, regal golden double cross.

Because the French take it very seriously, there are numerous rules cognac makers have to follow not to fall “short” into the brandy category.
The white wine from the specific grapes (Ugni blanc) has to be doubly distilled in a copper pot still before being aged for at least two years in oak casks from which the wood can only come from two specific forests in France (Limousin or Tronçais).
Depending on the age, there are three types of cognac, the youngest V.S. (Very Special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and the X.O. (Extra Old)
