Eye: Deep and rich amber at first glance, developing into a slightly golden finish once poured and left out in the open to aerate. The rich amber shades come from the Limousin Oak barrels used in the aging process.

Nose: On the first nose, strong dark chocolate and wood notes come through. The deep and rich nose of the bottle is contrasted by zesty orange and citrus notes, combining well with the smoky flavors of the wood.

Palate: Pleasant, fresh and aromatic on the mouth. The wood smoke from the notes transfers over into the taste yet mixed with sweetened cinnamon and vanilla flavors coming through. Spiced fruits and zesty orange themes are also included, giving the Cognac and rich and warm finish.

Description

A Jean Doussoux VSOP Réserve Cognac from the Bons Bois

A Cognac that oozes elegance and class from the first sip to the last - Domaine du Chene Jean Doussoux VSOP Réserve Cognac. Originating from the Bon Bois Region, the world-renowned Jean Doussoux Distillery created the Cognac using only grapes of the Ugni Blanc variety, giving it its fruity, direct taste.

The distillery’s use of Limousin oak barrels during the process also adds immeasurably to the Cognac, developing a deep amber color and spicy notes in the aftertaste.

To be called VSOP, the wine must be aged for a minimum of 4 years, yet this reserve has been sitting in casks for the past 14-18 years, allowing plenty of time to develop flavor, aroma and color.

The Bons Bois cru is certainly earthier than the other parts of the Cognac region, and covers approximately 16,000 hectares. The sandy and earthy soil is typical for its coastal locations, which have eroded from the Massif Central. The vines are often mixed with other crops, such as chestnuts and forests of pine trees.

How to enjoy

To be drunk on its own in its purest form or enjoyed with chocolate desserts or ripe fruits.

About Domaine du Chêne

Located at the heart of the Romanesque Saintonge province is Domaine du Chêne, which has remained a family estate for several generations since Jean-Baptiste Doussoux bought his first still in 1865.

The vineyard now covers 80 hectares growing several different grapes, including rare and old varieties like the Folle Blanche, among other classic varieties such as the Ugni Blanc.

The vineyards themselves are over 80 years old and today produce a range of bespoke products including their "Domaine du Chêne" range and Cognac "Jean Doussoux".
