XO Single Cask Cognac from the Bon Bois terroir
Aged for a minimum of 10 years, the Domaine du Chene Single Cask Cognac descends from one barrel alone, taking inspiration from whisky production. Single casks of Cognac are left untouched and later bottled in limited quantities. Bottled at 43% ABV, this is a rare and innovative Cognac that puts its trust in the power of nature and the imparting of wood tannins into the cask for that final taste and aroma sensation.
Presentation of the Bottle
The amber finish on the bottle is very inviting, with a rich mahogany overtone and impressive golden/amber hue. The special Jean Doussoux Decanter is the perfect gift to friends, family or yourself! As elegant in presentation, as the Cognac is in taste, this is one to savor.
How to serve
The only way to serve a single cask is neat. Leave to breathe for a few minutes and enjoy the flavors develop by themselves.
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".
