The sweetest, little Cognac that packs quite a punch.
 
PM Spirits markets itself as a “Provider of Geeky Spirits.Founder Nicolas Palazzi was raised amongst his family’s vineyards if Bordeaux, France, and learned the ins and outs of artisanal Cognac under the tutelage of a man known only as “Mr. X.” After his successful start in Cognac, Nicolas has turned his attention to the “geeky” production of a wide range of strictly limited Rums, Brandies, Whiskies, Armagnacs, Calvados, Liqueurs, Eau de Vie, and a bunch specialty bitters and Vermouths. 
 
Founded in 1619, Gourry de Chadeville is the oldest Cognac House in the region — located in Segonzac, the capital of the Grande Champagne appellation. Bottled at cask strength, Gourry de Chadeville Overproof is produced exclusively for PM Spirits from 100% Ugni Blanc grapes. The wine is double distilled on the lees in a very small — 25 hectoliter — copper pot-still. It ages for a total of three years — thirty months in seasoned Limousin oak and six months in foudre. Last we checked, only 330 bottles made it into the United States last year. How Uncle Flaviar got his hands on it nobody knows. But if you are a Cognac fan, this highly-rated gem needs to be in your liquor cabinet. 

SmartAss Corner
The large wooden marrying vats in the Cognac region used for blending and final aging are called “foudre.” “Foudre” translates most of the time as “lightning,” but it is also used to indicated “chance” and “”discharge,” which is how the term likely came to Cognac production.

Believe it or not, the French aren’t all that fond of Cognac. In fact, they export nearly 90% of their production.
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).
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.
Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
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.
The wine used for Cognac is very dry, acidic, and thin but excellent for distillation and aging.
