XO Cognac D'Ussé
American artist Jay Z is not only a rapper and husband of Beyonce. He is also a well-informed businessman whose investments are diversified. For the past five years, one of these activities has been the production of a wine emblem of the French terroir, Cognac.
Associated with the Bacardi Martini group, he owns 50% of D'Ussé, a Cognac produced by the Otard House.
Michel Casavecchia, Maître de Chais, meticulously hand-selects the rarest eaux-de-vie — some of which have rested for years in the cellars of the Chateau de Cognac — to craft the unique blend of D’USSÉ XO Cognac.
Aged a minimum of ten years, the eaux-de-vie rest in French oak barrels to ensure the utmost complexity and depth in flavor.
D’USSÉ XO Cognac delivers rich notes of ripe blackberry and apricot, layered with hints of dark chocolate and walnut, culminating in an exceptionally balanced finish.
D’USSÉ XO is best enjoyed neat but can also be the delicious key ingredient in many premium cocktails.
