Cognac worthy of its cigar.
Dobbe distillery is located in the heart of the Cognac region, in Salignac-sur-Charente to be precise. It was established around 1787, when the family’s ancestors acquired a few acres of vines. Their passion for wine grew with time, and so did their Cognac producing skills. The distillery is still a family-owned operation and the tradition has been kept intact all these years – 7 generations in fact.
Their estate extends mainly over the Petite Champagne area, known for chalky soil, which is much more compact than the one from the Grande area, resulting in Cognac that is not too floral and slightly less subtle. Funny how this area is called Petite, when in fact, it spans over more acres than the Grande Champagne.
Dobbe Cognac Petite Champagne is made from Ugni Blanc grapes coming solely from the Petite Champagne cru and is aged for at least 10 years in traditional Limousin oak casks. Irregardless of the fact that it comes from the less appreciated Cognac cru this Eau de Vie bears all the right attributes that make a Cognac worthy of its cigar.
