Description

Godet Extra Hors d'Age Cognac

Godet Extra Cognac 70cl: A Story of Resilience 

Experience the ultimate expression of the Godet House’s recovery after 1945 with Extra Hors d’âge – a living legacy of Godet's ancestors. This exceptional cognac is the result of aging their eaux-de-vie in oak casks for 20 to 70 years, and a tribute to Jacques and Jean, their grandfather and great-grandfather who rebuilt the cellars and vineyards destroyed during the Occupation, by the ocean. 80 years and two generations later, their amazing resilience lives on in every sip of Extra Hors d’âge.

This is the inspiration behind Godet Extra Cognac, an "Hors d'Age" blend using eaux-de-vie harvested during this post-war period of rebirth. Like a phoenix from the ashes, Godet managed to maintain its position as a quality Cognac producer, appreciated by Cognac connoisseurs for over 500 years.

This particular Extra Cognac is not only superb to sip, with its sensual bouquet of dried flowers and a hint of spice but equally a masterpiece to look at. Its extraordinary stand proudly frames this work of art, an exciting feast for the senses. 

Presentation of the Bottle:

The decanter of Extra Hors d’âge is easily recognizable with a stopper and presentation box. The bottleneck is delicately wrapped with a gold thread that adds an extra touch of elegance to the presentation. Each decanter is hand-decorated with care, reflecting the passion and dedication that goes into creating this extraordinary cognac.

The unique shell-like stopper is an elegant reminder of the La Rochelle location of Godet's estate, and the extraordinary element added by the Atlantic climate and humid sea environment. 

How to Enjoy:

This Extra aged Cognac is ideally drunk neat as it is "Hors d'Age", enjoy it in a traditional snifter or tulip glass with family or friends. To enjoy the Cognac's aromas further, hand warm your glass before taking that very first sublime sip.

For those Cognac connoisseurs who appreciate fine Extra Cognacs like this, this very rare find should be sipped slowly, savoring every single aroma and flavor that develops on to palate and nose.
