Dupuy VS Tentation Cognac: Springtime Florals and Fruit
The knowledge and experience of generations of Cognac makers have resulted in the creation of the sophisticated Tentation line. Dupuy VS Tentation Cognac has been crafted from 100% Ugni Blanc grapes and aged in French Limousin oak barrels. This blend features eaux-de-vie from the Fins Bois, Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne growing areas, with an average age of 3 years but the oldest ones approaching 10 years - well above the legal minimum age for a VS Cognac. The rich vanilla notes and bright fruitiness of this blend make it ideal for all kinds of uses: on the rocks, in cocktails and in cooking.
Auguste Dupuy created Cognac Dupuy in 1852, succeeded by his son Edmond on his death in 1895. Only ten years later, two Norwegians - Peter Rustad and Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen - took over the house but decided to keep the name. At the same time, they created their own Cognac brand for the Scandinavian market, which is better known as Bache-Gabrielsen Cognac.
Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen’s great-grandson Hervé runs the company today and is responsible for putting Dupuy Cognac back on the map. Cellar Master Jean-Philippe Bergier lends his skill and innovation to the mix, and together they consistently produce eaux-de-vie in the traditional manner of the previous centuries with a focus on quality and design. The Bache-Gabrielsen family are sole owners of the company, conveniently housed in a stunning mansion in the heart of Cognac. While keeping an eye on tradition, as an economist, Hervé also knows the importance of staying relevant in an ever-changing world, bringing a modern look to his products and reaching out to new markets around the world.
