What makes Paul Masson Grande Amber VSOP Brandy different from other VSOP products? For one, the blend. It is simply the highest quality VSOP available. Paul Masson Grande Amber VSOP Brandy is a superior aged brandy exquisitely blended with French cognac. It's aged a minimum of five years in oak--longer than required for cognac. All of this produces a VSOP with rich flavor, fine aroma, and extra-smooth taste.
