A rare Cognac blend that was aged for 30 years.

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 Terre Cognac is a rare Cognac blend that was aged for 30 years in oak. It’s inspired by the 6 crus of Cognac: Grande Champagne, Bons Bois, Fins Bois, Petite Champagne, Bois Ordinaires, and Borderies. This luxurious bottling brilliantly reflects the terroir and the soul of Godet vineyard. Notice the rich golden mahogany color that is only a prelude into the aromas of black pepper, cinnamon, and violet and a complex and powerful palate with prune, honey, and Russian leather. Luxury par excellence. Silver at both San Francisco and London International Spirits Competition.

Believe it or not, the French aren’t all that fond of Cognac. In fact, they export nearly 90% of their production.
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.
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.
Laws concerning Cognac-making are strict as hell. Only three types of grapes may be used, and they can only be harvested in October; Cognac must be aged for at least two years in barrels made from French oak - and get this, from one of two specific forests! Then, the stills must be of a particular French shape (no, not the baguette shape); and we guess La Marseillaise has to be sung during the entire process.
Cognac is a form of distilled Brandy. For a spirit to be labeled Cognac, it must be made from specified grapes, of which Ugni Blanc is the one most widely used. It must be twice distilled in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels from Limousin or Tronçais.
Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
