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.

A deep amber color. On the nose, musky aroma, winey (vieux Sémillon), with a touch of acetic notes. On the palate, the first notes have a predominance of nutmeg and licorice. The finish is quite short.
Eye : Bright, straw yellow
Nose : Aromas of summer fruits, peach, fig, apricot, as well as hints of lime peel, and green tea.
Palate : Flavors of buttered honey, citrus fruits, and apricots. Finish is lengthy, fresh, and bright.
Eye: Rich amber
Nose: Spicy, somewhat sweet, hints of dark chocolate and cocoa
Palate: Balanced, harmonious, white flowers, fresh herbs. Explosive finish with vanilla and freshly baked bread
