Godet Pineau Blanc: a French Speciality
Pineau des Charentes is one of Cognac's specialities: after trying Godet Pineau de Charentes Blanc, you’re sure to understand why. Godet Pineau Blanc blends two-thirds freshly pressed grapes with one-third young Cognac, all from the same estate, before aging in oak barrels. Pineau de Charentes Blanc is generally aged for around two years, resulting in an aperitif wine with delectable notes of peach, plum and toasted nuts, perfect for enjoying on long summer days.
Founded in 1782, the House of Godet ranges amongst the oldest Cognac houses. The Godet family has been based in the seaside town and former trading hub La Rochelle for 400 years and since the very beginnings of Cognac production, they have played an important role in perfecting this culture. Cognac Godet has been in the hands of the same family for an astonishing 15 generations, who have placed tradition and excellence at the heart of their business. Godet is also one of the few Cognac producers who focus on cultivating and using the Folle Blanche grape variety, the original Cognac grape.
The Godet family's expertise in wine-making results in outstanding wine and Pineau de Charentes as well as Cognac - an excellent standing for a family-run company. The business is headed by Godet president Jean-Jacques Godet, assisted by his three sons Jean Eduard, Maxime and Cyril.

How to Serve Godet Pineau Blanc
The House of Godet recommends serving this Pineau chilled, either as an aperitif or with cocktails. We say it’s the perfect accompaniment to light finger foods in the afternoon, or served with fruity desserts at an al fresco dinner.
About Godet Cognac
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.
