The two most prestigious crus join forces.

The story of Godet Cognacs is really, really long. We’ll try not to bore you too much wih every detail possible as you can imagine a thing or two has happened in the 4 centuries (add or take a couple of decades) since the story started in 1588. It was then that a Dutch merchant Bonaventure Godet founded a salt and Wine business in the harbour of La Rochelle on the western coast of France. Godet was one of the first traders of the “Dutch burnt wine” — the name under which Cognac was known back in the day. Over the years, the craft and taste have been refined, but Godet Freres Cognac remains 100% family-owned today when it is run by the 15th generation of Godet family

Godet XO Fine Champagne Cognac is a blend of two of the most revered crus: Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne. It tells the story of the Atlantic Ocean and the harbor of La Rochelle, expressing the terroir with deep, floral, and complex aromas and flavors of jasmine, prune, honey, and fine Russian leather. It’s ranked Fine Champagne AOC, which stands for Appellation d'Origine Controlée. Elegant sippers like this should be savored neat, but we promise not to tell anyone if you make a fine ass cocktail...

Character Dogson
Cognac, named after the town of Cognac in France, is a variety of brandy (distilled wine). It is only produced in the wine-growing region surrounding this town. Cognac must be made from specified grapes, be twice distilled in copper pot stills, and be aged at least two years in French oak barrels. Most Cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement.
There are three primary grades of Cognac recognized by law: V.S., V.S.O.P., and X.O, but we also know Napoléon, XXO, and Hors d'âge.
There are three different qualities of Cognac recognized by law: V.S. (very special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and X.O. (Extra Old).
Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavor usually found in extra-aged fortified wines (Port, Sherry, Madeira, Marsala …) and fruit-based Spirits, namely Cognacs, Calvados, and Armagnac. It appears in Cognac after roughly 10 years of maturing in oak casks, becoming more intense over the years.
Believe it or not, the French aren’t all that fond of Cognac. In fact, they export nearly 90% of their production.
There are six different wine-growing areas (crus) authorized to produce Cognac - in descending order of prestige: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, and Bois Ordinaires.
