Cognac XO Deau
The reference of the Moisans Estate. A beautifully balanced Cognac.
The success of this XO Cognac is in its blend of eaux-de-vie from Petite Champagne and Fins Bois. The youngest of these eaux-de-vie have been waiting in red casks for at least 10 years.
The carafe, designed by Véronique Legaret, is also unique. Its asymmetrical lines give it its energy and elegance, communicating the values of the Moisans Distillery : Rarity and Elegance.
Harmonious, rich and generous, the brother of Great Deau Very Superior Old Pale his say with his many years of aging in oak barrels.
The tasting opens with an mahogany-amber light, reminding the red cask in which the XO has aged, but also the roof of the workshop Distillery's built by Roland Bru.
The nose gives us a glimpse of a beautiful aromatic richness, a floral and fruity universe, with notes of violet, jasmine, lychee and plums.
On the palate, the balance and the power of this Cognac seems perfectly mastered. First appear notes of nuts, cocoa beans and coffee. Then, in a second time, come more masculine and musky notes, including leather and cigar box.
This magnificent Deau XO is one of the highlights of the Moisans Distillery.
Rich and balanced, it is pleasant to taste nature at room temperature (18 degrees) or with an ice cube.
