De Luze VSOP

23 February 2011 2 Comments

One of the best tasting VSOP Cognacs reviewed so far, and above on that, it’s one of the cheapest! But the best thing is the fact it uses Fine Champagne Cognacs.

I already liked the De Luze Alfred and VS very well, the price / quality ratio was great as well! Especially since De Luze is a brand that targets the younger Cognac drinkers.

The history of Cognac De Luze begins in 1820 with Baron Alfred De Luze and his five sons in Bordeaux.

De Luze was purchased in 2006 by the Boinaud Family of Angeac Champagne. Wine-growers exploiting an Estate of 410 ha of Grande Champagne vines, owners of Cognac’s biggest private distillery, 41 pot-stills, and tracing their history back to 1640 at Le Bois d’Angeac (hence their family name Boinaud, or Bois-naud, man from the forest), the Boinaud Family is one of the oldest and most respected Cognac producing families of the Appellation.

The tasting notes of this, De Luze VSOP Cognac are:

The color: amber-gold.
The fragrance: very fruity including plubs with the finesse of a Fine Champagne Cognac. Also slightly rose scent and a slightly smoky flavor.
The taste: full, and some spicy oak, also very fruity, with mainly the taste of apricots, cherries and pears. Slightly more watery than the Alfred de Luze.
The origin: Grande Champagne (minimum 50%) and Petite Champagne.
The age: 4 to 11 years old. The oldest blend is from the Boinaud Estate Harvest of 1989.
The price: 22 euros.
The price / quality ratio: 7.5. Great Fine Champagne Cognac that get it right for a nice price.
