“DU GALT MER SUI”
“I am the Lord of the Forest”


Is this Cognac, or the beginning of the Hobbit? Because we're pretty sure this sounds like something Lord Elrond said to Frodo right before he slays some orcs. Nevertheless, these are the words from one of the most longstanding Cognac houses in the world. Their story began in 1644 when a man named Charles Gautier married Jacquette Brochet, a Winemaker's daughter.

After a founding charter signed by King Louis XV In 1755, a royal warrant was granted to the Maison Gautier Cognac. The Maison Gautier Cellars were built in a unique location; a former watermill in Aigre on the Osme river, nicknamed the "Little Venice" of Charente. Et voilà, Maison Gautier was officially born. The heirs of Maison Gautier succeeded each other for over 10 generations, building the family business.

The Gautier's really are quite fond of the forest, actually owning a few of them. They became quite popular for crafted casks using wood from the Tronçais Forest, famed for its quality oaks.

They choose the trees for the barrels carefully, and meticulously toast the wood perfection. Gautier VSOP gets its beauty rest in these beautiful barrels. And being housed in the 18th century former watermill on a river, the proximity to the water gives the cellars a natural humidity, this giving the Cognac a most distinguished taste.

Corner
Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavour normally found only in extra-aged fortified wines (Port, Sherry, Madeira, Marsala …) and fruit-based spirits: Cognacs, Calvados, and Armagnac. It appears in Cognac after roughly 10 years of ageing in oak casks, becoming more intense over the years.
