Character Goatson
A fine, expertly-crafted Cognac far older than a VS should be and a super value.

Sometime in the late 1800s, Samuel Beau purchased an old, neglected vineyard in the Grand Champaign region of Cognac. When he passed away in 1914, the vineyard was inherited by his son Paul who worked the land with his wife Denise. She came from a family of Wine makers and together they planted more grapevines and expanded operations. They were one of the first local growers to begin bottling Cognac under their own name in 1977. Today, Maison Paul Beau produces a tidy range of fine Champaign Cognacs available around the world.

Like all Paul Beau Cognacs, Paul Beau VS is 100% Ugni Blanc and it is aged in a combination of virgin and refill limosin oak casks. Now… this is where things get very interesting. Normally, “VS” means that a Cognac has been aged a minimum of two years, and VSOP is aged a minimum of 4 years. But the Cognac in Paul Beau VS is a blend of their vintage spirits that have an average age of six years. Sure, there’s some two-year old juice in there. But this doesn’t TASTE like a two year old. And that makes it one of the best values out there.

Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
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.
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.
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.
The French believe it or not, aren’t actually all that fond of Cognac. They export almost 90% of their production.
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.
