Godet Renaissance Grande Champagne Cognac

Godet Cognac

Godet Renaissance is a Grande Champagne cognac, blended with 15 eaux-de-vie which originate from the harvest between 1900 and 1950. The cognac comes in a crystal decanter with golden painting. The story behind this bottle: On July 13th 1588, Henry de Navarre, king of France to be, set foot in the coastal city of La Rochelle to prepare for his most important battle, the one to become Henry the 4th, King of France. Six months later, the king sends a letter to Bonaventure Godet thanking him personally for the quality of the cognac he was given when he was in La Rochelle. Godet's Renaissance Decanter, inspired by the one which was given to Henry the 4th in 1588, is a tribute to this moment.

Tasting Notes

Mesmerizing nose, exceptional tasting with old Russian leather, Alpine Honey and barbarian figs.

The house of Godet has been run by the family for 14 generations. It is a perfect example of a cognac house that deeply believes in the tradition of this spirit and its origins. At the same time, Godet manages to move with modern times, having recently created a cognac from a grape that is almost extinct in the cognac industry: Folle Blache. This cognac is called "Antarctica Godet" and was inspired by a 2-month sailing trip to the South Pole.
