Deau Vintage 1999 Fins Bois Cognac: Chocolate Orange Delight
Rich and decadent, the Deau Vintage 1999 Fins Bois Cognac perfectly expresses the quality of this underrated terroir. The soil of the rather large Fins Bois growing area contains smaller patches of chalk that are less porous than that which is found in other crus, producing eaux-de-vie that are full-bodied, supple and fruity. With its notes of orange and caramel, this release is sure to charm from the first sip. Like all vintage Cognacs, this is made with eaux-de-vie from a single year. This limited edition Cognac has been matured and bottled with nothing added or taken away.
The Deau family history is rooted in the land and its vines, intertwined with the history of Cognac itself. Double distillation was invented in the 17th century, giving Cognac its unique and excellent qualities. The name of the winemaker Louis Deau appears in the archives during this same period, born in Saintonge in 1665. From generation to generation, the descendants of Louis Deau have cultivated the vines with passion, making the best wines used to create great eaux-de-vie.
As the House of Deau Cognac owns and operates its own vineyard, the family can control the quality from grape selection to vinification. Currently in the hands of the fourth generation, the company oversees the entire production process, from vine to bottle. Their rare and prestigious vintage Cognacs are aged for years - or generations - in Limousin oak barrels carefully chosen for their fine grain. These casks are allowed to rest in cellars near the Charente River, nourished by humid air that ensures a slow aging process, creating Cognacs with roundness and finesse.
Presentation of the Bottle
With such astounding attention to detail, you can’t help but fall in the love with the bottle. The handmade glass is full of minuscule air bubbles that refract the light and makes the Cognac shimmer, while the deep red wax and classic label perfectly embody the vintage character of Deau Cognac. A navy blue ribbon around the neck adds just another classic touch. The simple wooden presentation box makes this a perfect gift for anyone with a 1999 anniversary or birthday.
How to Enjoy Deau Vintage 1999 Fins Bois Cognac
This is a wonderful Cognac to bring out on a special occasion, served as a digestif at room temperature, or perhaps alongside a fine cigar.
About DEAU Cognac
With a history stretching all the way back to the 17th century, more than 300 years ago, the house of Deau is a true treasure among the artisanal producers of Cognac. Originally the brand grew and distilled all of its eaux-de-vie to be sold to other Cognac houses, however in more recent years, DEAU began producing under its own name. In honour of its family history and traditions, the brand is now making its mark on the Cognac industry with its own personal style and contemporary flair. All of DEAU’s Cognacs combine the mastership of aging and blending with luxurious and sophisticated design. This is the perfect gift for Cognac lovers, especially those with a soft spot for beautiful bottles.
