A mellow and perfectly balanced VS Cognac

The roots of Prince de Didionne Cognac date back to 1847 when Jules Gautret founded the original Cognac trade house in the city of Jonzac in the Haute Saintonge region. A century later, the house was acquired by the Coopérative des Viticulteurs Charentais and later changed its name to UniCognac SA. Today, it’s a subsidiary of the first cooperative group of the Cognac region, Ocealia, and since 2007, the premium Cognac is bottled at a state-of-the-art facility in Saint Germain de Lusignan

The Cognac House enjoys a symbiosis with about 500 Charentais winegrowers who provide it with the best wines, made mainly from grapes from the Petite Champagne, Fins Bois, and Bons Bois terroirs. This way, the costs of production and marketing are lowered for the winegrowers and UniCognac has a steady supply (Their stock of fine XO brandies is the largest in the Cognac region). The high-end Cognacs are finally distilled in UniCognac’s swan-neck Charentais pot stills before being blended by the maître de chai.

Prince de Didonne VS Cognac is crafted from Ugni Blanc grapes from a combination of the Fins Bois and Bons Bois terroirs. After it’s double distilled in traditional swan neck stills, it’s aged in oak casks from the Limousin and Troncais forests. The maître de chai selects Cognacs that are a minimum of three years old. The result is mellow and perfectly balanced with flavors of honeysuckle, jasmine, sweet baking spices, caramel, and vanilla. Its harmonious palate won this gorgeous sipper Gold and 90 points at the 2021 Bartender Spirits Awards.

Character Dogson
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.
The wine used for Cognac is very dry, acidic, and thin but excellent for distillation and aging.
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.
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.
The French believe it or not, aren’t actually all that fond of Cognac. They export almost 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.
