The story of Paul Beau Cognac begins way back at the end of the 19th century. The Beau wine family business was started by Paul's father, Samuel Beau. He built the main buildings and developed the land than now boasts more than 100 hectares of prime Champagne vineyards. Upon his death, Beau passed the estate on to his son, and thereby hangs the tale – Paul has made this the renowned business it is today.
 
You see, Paul and his wife Denise modernized, innovated, and focused on the aging process and on maturing the eau-de-vie. Et voilà– a star was born. With the creation of the brand Paul Beau, Cognac came to the forefront of their business, and they never looked back. Why should they? They're at the top of their game for years, and their products are winning awards left and right. But even though they impress fans and critics alike, they remain unwavering in their beliefs. Quality is the best business plan, and Paul Beau epitomizes this concept.
 
Speaking of quality – the Paul Beau VSOP is not only an example of excellence but also value. This lovely Cognac is made up of largely Ugni Blanc and a tiny fraction of Colombard grapes, all grown within the majestic family vineyards and aged in new and seasoned French barrique. You'll be hard-pressed to find a better product at this price. As most VSOP level Cognacs are simple and drinkable, this little number will blow you away with its complexity and character. It definitely fails to act its age – and that's a good thing!

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.
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.
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.
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!
