DEAU VSOP Cognac
This Deau Very Superior Old Pale cognac is a harmonious blend of eaux-de-vie from the best cognac vintages of Distillerie Des Moisans. It ages for five long years in our cellars to reach optimum maturity.
Gourmet aromas of crème brule, summer fruit and dried apricot. On the palate it is rich and smooth with sweet and fruity notes like orange blossom, evolving towards oaky and spicy, drawing on walnut and nutmeg. The flattering aromas of the finish express lingering notes of dried fruit, spices, and pink peppercorns. Lovely orange-amber color.
The origins of Deau Cognac began over 300 years ago, when a young entrepreneur, Louis Deau, became a master of the cognac trade, producing exquisite cognacs in the Cognac region. The tradition of Deau Cognac is carried on today by Distillerie Des Moisans, which was founded by Roland Bru in 1962 and has been owned by the Bru Legaret family for three generations. The estate has remained independent from the large cognac houses and is currently run by the founder’s daughter, Veronique Bru Legaret who today presides over the destiny of the DEAU Cognac House. An expert in the art market, she recognizes the nobility of the brand, and its symbolic Griffin, that she has known since childhood. Three centuries after Louis Deau's first creations, she has bought back the old eaux-de-vie and preserved this treasure trove in Les Moisans.
The Moisans estate is passionate about their terroir and vineyards and gives great care to creating the wines that will become Deau Cognac. It is thanks to the land and the vines that the family history carries on. The estate is located in the Petit Champagne region of Cognac, an area renowned for its fine brandies. The main grape variety is Ugni Blanc, which yields lively, fresh wines which are ideal for making cognac. Located in a small hamlet in Sireuil (between Cognac and Angoulême), the estate includes the distillery, the aging cellars, a bottling building, and the offices – something rare enough in Cognac to be emphasized! This proximity of all the processes allows the Moisans estate to always keep careful control over the quality and customer service.
The distillery is a splendid cathedral-like building with twelve Charentais stills that continuously distill from October through March of the following year. The slow heating process of the still combined with double distillation produces eaux-de-vie of unrivalled quality. Double distillation allows the distillery to keep only the aromatic “hearts” of the eaux-de-vie, guaranteeing the high quality of the Cognac. The cellar master of Distillerie Des Moisans personally supervises the meticulous work of distillation. Through his talent and expertise, he gives Deau Cognacs the personality and characteristics that are dear to the Bru Legaret family.
The aging cellars are located on the banks of the Charentes River, in niches of limestone concentration, imparting the ideal humidity for slow and harmonious maturation.
