Tasting review

Eye: Light amber color. 

Nose: Floral notes of jasmine, medlar flowers. Fruity notes of figs, prunes, creme brulee and candied orange. Spice of oak and toasted brioche. 

Palate: Generous and oaky, mellow refined and elegant. A long rich finish like a good Grande Champagne should be. 

Description

A Fine Champagne Extra Old Cognac

Behold, a stunning example of a Fine Champagne Cognac from the Boinaud Estate. The De Luze XO Cognac is a testament to their Cognac house, and features as a part of a collection of Cognacs that underwent a major redesign in 2011. As an Extra Old Cognac, it is around 20 years in age, and the oldest eaux-de-vie comes from the harvest of 1980 from the family estate. This sublime Cognac was designed to encapsulate the spirit of the De Luze maison, and does everything that a good Fine Champagne Cognac should; the roundness on the palate, followed by the exceptionally long finish that never fails to impress. The Extra Old De Luze has caught the attention of many spirit critics worldwide, and for that reason is a multi-award winner. With a floral character that is bold and intense, you are sure to enjoy this Cognac from the largest family run estate in the Premier Cru, the Grande Champagne.

The De Luze Cognac house has undergone some serious modernization in recent years. They are now headed by young and dynamic Cognac producers such as Remi Boinaud, who represents the 24th generation of Cognac makers. Dating back over 200 years, they are a testament to the art of Cognac production in the Grande Champagne region. Take a closer look at their Cognac house here, or take a look at the time that we went on a tour around the Boinaud estate.

How to enjoy the XO Cognac from De Luze

The De Luze XO is best on ice. The De Luze Cognac decanter is a beauty in itself, and sets the tone for the fine nectar within. A voluptuous decanter, it comes in a 70cl glass carafe with a stylishly engraved crest on the lid.

Impressed

I don’t know what’s going on, but I liked this more than I like Rémy XO and Hennessy XO. The finish is incredibly long! Excellent Cognac!

Fine Champagne at its best

I asked for a Fine Champagne recommendation and I ordered this Deluze XO, i don't regret it. I will order another one for sure.. if you love full bodied cognac that is comparable to remy xo (because it is also fine champagne) go for deluze!

one word: wow

What an awesome bottle. Simply love the packaging.. the cognac is rich, mature, very round. Easily keeps up with Remy or Hennessy equivalent.

This is great value for money, one of my favorite Fine Champagne XOs

So this is a classic in my pov: fantastic XO for a very solid price I must say. The nose is very rich, the palate and the aftertaste unique and very balanced. Great work by Boinaud.
I learned they have solved the problem with the stopper they used to have. The design and packaging really is great, fantastic decanter, very valuable. I can totally recommend!

Martell xo is my choice. De Luze has too much of an overwhelming burn that over power the floral/fruit notes in De Luze xo. On the other hand Martell xo is smooth very little burn witch lets you enjoy the oak,fruits,caramelish,notes in full. best xo I've had so far. Martell xo & Martell cordon bleu two thumbs way up. Best money you will ever spend.

In my opinion the best cognac you can buy within it's (and twice it's) price-range. To get to the next level you have to spend at least twice as much to buy for example Hennesey XO refer to prices in Norway

Tom 2013-01-18

I received my bottle in the mail (I ordered at Cognac-Expert.com) - a very nice Cognac to be sure - but - I still prefer the Hine XO. I will be ordering a bottle as soon as you have it online but in the mean-time I shall continue to enjoy the De Luze. Thank you for the recommendation.

Franck 2013-01-17

I think this is one of the best XO Cognacs out there. The taste is fantastic, deep, round and dark fruits on the nose. The finish is complex - no artifical additives! The bottle is a perfect design, and last but not least, the price is really competitive. Fantastic XO. Why pay more if I can get it better with this De Luze cognac.
