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.
Tasting review by Raymond Ragnaud:
Color: deep amber
Nose: floral expressions with various plant aromas
Palate: tender, almost 'fleshy', with strong tones of spicy grape, plum, and mirabelle plum.
Finish: daffodil, cherries, and ginger.
Eye: Deep, reddish amber.
Nose: Complex nose, with notes of saffron, nuts, leather are traversed with a fresh mint and berry aroma.
Palate: A long finish in the mouth, maintained by the “rancio” alongside notes of vanilla and Madeira wine.
