"Dobbé VS has an amber hue and a striking note of red currants on the nose. That fruitiness continues to a bright a lively palate, bringing to mind ripe cherries and marzipan candy, and fading into almond and vanilla on the finish. Light-bodied and easy to enjoy, consider this a reminder that cognac can be fun."
