A Hors d’Age Grande Champagne beauty from Deau Cognac

Its name is an homage to Louis Deau, who settled in Cognac in the 17th century to first establish this long-standing Cognac heritage. This Hors d’Age is a very old 100% Grande Champagne Cognac with an endlessly unfolding aftertaste.
The Louis Memory is the masterpiece of the family collection, radiating its venerable tradition. Its name is an homage to Louis Deau, who settled in Cognac in the 17th century to first establish this long-standing Cognac heritage. This Hors d’Age is a very old 100% Grande Champagne Cognac with an endlessly unfolding aftertaste. It’s hard to believe, but the oldest eau-de-vie in this blend dates back to 1916. The old age explains the Cognac’s amber color and maroon-like glow.
Grande Champagne is revered for its ability to produce such exceptional eaux-de-vie that is light, floral and lengthy on the palate. The unique geological makeup of this small area is really quite astonishing. The fossilized remnants in the soil back to the Jurassic period, when the Atlantic Ocean covered a large area and sediments were deposited. Millions of years later, the soil is high in chalk content allowing vines to grow and flourish. Combined with an optimal maritime climate, it certainly deserves its status as the “Premier Cru”. It’s hard to believe, but the oldest eau-de-vie in this blend dates back to 1916. The old age explains the Cognac’s amber color and maroon-like glow.

How to enjoy
There is absolutely no other way of enjoying Deau Louis Memory than neat and at room temperature. By warming it with your hand, a beautiful bouquet will reveal itself. This is a Cognac you want to be enjoying by the fireplace, or after a beautiful dinner.
Deau Louis Memory is a blend of 100% Grande Champagne, and the oldest eau-de-vie in the blend dates back to 1916. The initial nose brings some sweet fruit notes. As it opens, some fig and cinnamon appear, along with some rancio, indicating some old eau-de-vie in the blend. Fruit, cinnamon and some spice are all well balanced on the palate in a lingering and long finish!! Very lovely indeed!!
Love the decanter
I personally like the Deau products, especially those ones with this special decanter. They are looking fantastic!
If you ask me Deau Black, Deau XO or Deau Louis Memory I would go for the Louis Memory. I personally like the taste most. But they all are good Cognacs.
