Description

A Historic Vintage for a Historic Year: Godet Single Year Vintage 1968 Petite Champagne

Godet's range of Vintage Cognacs must be one of the largest in the entire region, with a collection spanning 1814 to the present day. Their Petite Champagne 1968 Millésime Cognac is a single year, single cru Cognac that recounts the history of this Cognac house and their adventures.

A Vintage Cognac is a showcase of a Cognac producer's ability to discern and select the finest eaux-de-vie from one harvest alone. This Cognac is over 50 years old, and has been selected from a harvest in one of the finest growth areas in the region - the Petite Champagne.

The Petite Champagne is renowned for chalky, limestone soil that drains easily, and an optimum maritime climate that is perfect for growing grapes. 

This Cognac captures the weather conditinos of that year, 1968, and has seen history unfold before its very eyes. Aged in French oak barrels in the Atlantic cellars of La Rochelle, the salty air gives it a certain quality. 

Usually, Cognac is blended by the Master Blender, but instead, it is a way of letting nature express itself fully. All the Master Blender does is safeguard the eaux-de-vie in oak barrels, nurturing it quietly and respectfully until it has reached full maturity.

Presentation of the bottle

Own a little piece of Godet's history, and gift this Vintage Cognac to somebody born in 1968. It was a particularly historic year in France, and could make a wonderful momentum. Each lot is unique and bottled on demand, so only limited numbers are available. 

Serving Suggestions

To experience the full capabilities of this one year, enjoy this Cognac neat, in a snifter glass, at room temperature. Let it sit for 10 minutes before you sniff and sip.

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.
