Tasting review

Eye: Antique gold.

Nose: Fresh white grapes and apples complemented by a breeze of elderflower in bloom.

Palate: Presenting more oak than the nose, as well as a hint of Riesling. Slightly rustic, almost oxidised, but carrying a great elegance.

Description

Godet Pineau Vieux XO: For the Perfect Aperitif Hour

Pineau des Charentes is one of Cognac's specialities and the Godet Pineau Vieux XO is an outstanding example of the quality of this fortified wine style. The wine, which is consumed by locals both as an aperitif and after dinner, is made by mixing lightly fermented grape must with Cognac eaux-de-vie. This blend is then placed in oak barrels and often matured for several years; the assignation ‘vieux’ indicates a maturation period of over five years. 

The result is an intense concentration of sun-ripened fruits combined with the richness of the Cognac terroir, creating a wonderfully fruity, sweet and soft liqueur.

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.

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.
