About Dusse Alcohol
The bold, yet the remarkably smooth character of D’USSÉ Cognac was conceived by the senior-most cellar master working today,
Michel Casavecchia. One of the world’s greatest authorities on Cognac, he has been curating spirits for more than 20 years at the
prestigious Château de Cognac. This 200-year-old venue — one of the oldest Cognac houses in France — is where Casavecchia created D’USSÉ.
What is Cognac?
Cognac is a wine-based spirit solely produced in the Cognac area of France.
To be considered Cognac, it must be made from white grapes from one or more
of 6 approved growing regions. Cognac must go through a double distillation
process, and the liquid that results from the distillation is called eau-de-vie (translates to “water of life”).
Cognac must be aged at least 2 years in French Oak Casks and can be a minimum of 80 proof by volume.
According to the Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac (BNIC), the official quality grades of cognac are:
* V.S. (Very Special) or ✯✯✯ (three stars) designates a blend in which the youngest brandy has been aged for at least two years in a cask.
* V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale) or Reserve designates a blend in which the youngest brandy is aged for at least four years in a cask.
* Napoléon designates a blend in which the youngest brandy is aged for at least six years.
* XO (Extra Old) The minimum age of the youngest brandy used in an XO blend was increased to 10 years in April 2018; The Napoleon designation, previously unofficial, is used to specifically denote those blends with a minimum age of six years that do not meet the revised XO definition.
* XXO (Extra Extra Old) is a specific indication given to wine spirits that have been aged for at least 14 years
