An Extra Cognac of Fine Champagne eaux-de-vie
The Deau Black Cognac is a wonderfully elegant Cognac of an Extra quality, made purely from eaux-de-vie from the finest crus of the region, the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne. It’s so named after the color of the glasses used by the Cellar Master when selecting eau-de-vie during blind tasting sessions. They are colored this way so there is no preconception of age down to the color of the liquid within.
The youngest eaux-de-vie in the blend has been aged for at least 7 years.
Part of the unique aging process for Deau Black is that the young eaux-de-vie is first stored in new oak barrels before being moved to old barrels that exude less tannins and guarantee smokey, woody notes.
Presentation of the Deau Black decanter
Aesthetically, DEAU Black is a masterpiece: An asymmetrical bottle typical of the house of DEAU, perfectly complemented by a silver stopper and key–perhaps a symbol to unlock the flavors lovingly cradled within the decanter. The decanter comes in a luxurious purple and black gift box, making it a unique gift.

Deau Black Decanter Cognac
The colour of this cognac is a bit lighter than that of the XO - only the bottle is black. Distinct and complex nose on overripe fruits, honey and oranges. Good intensity on the palate, stewed fruits, liquorice. The finish is medium to long - not so sweet and more character than the XO.
