The 200-year-old Chateau de Cognac (one of France’s oldest Cognac chateaux) has blended up a new Cognac called D’ussé ($45). D’ussé is a V.S.O.P. grade Cognac, or “Very Superior Old Pale,” in which its youngest brandy is aged for at least four and a half years. On the nose, it reveals a powerful bouquet, rich in woody notes that are layered with touches of cinnamon and floral notes. Distinctively and unexpectedly smooth, with each taste, you savor hints of spices, almond and cinnamon. Subtle accents of honey and dried fruits are the finale. The symbol on the bottle is called the Cross of Lorraine. Throughout French history, those who march boldly forward carry the Cross of Lorraine. It is France’s fabled emblem of courage, honor and perseverance. Today, D’ussé uses the symbol on their bottles to signify that they are marching forward to create a new legacy. D’ussé was already been launched in New York this past summer and will continue to launch in select cities across the United States beginning in October.
