Putting Fins Bois in the Spotlight: Godet Single Cru 15 years old Cognac

This fantastic Godet Fins Bois Single Cru 15 years old Cognac has a very gentle nose with a more vibrant palate. The aromas on the nose are subtle and fade gently, whereas the smooth and velvety texture on the palate is enhanced by a long finish that increases in intensity to a true Cognac crescendo of flavor. 

What makes Godet stand out on the Cognac market is their La Rochelle location, the particularly salty and humid environment works magic on the eaux-de-vie during the aging process, and this particular 100% Fins Bois selection has been maturing over the course of 15 years in the estate's most ancient cellars. Thanks to this climate and the choice to celebrate and showcase one single cru, the 100% Fins Bois 15 years old truly makes for a unique and stand-out sensory exploration of Cognac at its best.

The Fins Bois cru rarely makes the headlines, and for an esteemed estate like Godet to showcase it is not only a bold choice, but instantly renders it rare and collectible.

An embodiment of Cognac at its most humble beginnings, this Single Cru takes the raw and pure agricultural spirit of one region's soils and transforms it into a refined blend, simplifying Cognac's complexity by highlighting "the best bits" of one particular terroir.

Eaux-de-vie from the Fins Bois tend to be rounder and more supple than their Bons Bois or Bois Ordinaires buddies. Fins Bois produce tends to age faster and traditionally offers a bouquet of freshly pressed grapes.

Godet's Single Cru 15 years old Selection is a celebration of the three lesser-known growing regions: Bois Ordinaire, Bon Bois and Fin Bois. These three terroirs, although not as famous as their Fine Champagne neighbors, each boast their own unique qualities and have well-defined flavor profiles that please the palates of Cognac connoisseurs across the world, despite not holding the "premier cru" title.

Ran by the 15th generation of a Cognac dynasty; Jean Edouard, Maxime and Cyril Godet have taken the heritage, history and craftsmanship of their ancestors before them and ran with it, elevating the estate by creating a legendary and luxurious brand with 500 years of savoir-faire under their belt.

How to Enjoy:

When it comes to "Single Cru" Cognacs, we always recommend enjoying them neat (as this is a rather light Cognac, you could add a few ice cubes in the summer to render it even more refreshing). For those more discerning drinkers, try and test other Single Cru selections alongside your Fins Bois blend, in order to compare and contrast the character of each individual Cognac. 

As the bouquet on this Cognac is very subtle, we'd advise against pairing it with a dessert, cheese course or a cigar. It would, however, follow nicely from a light and refreshing dessert, for example lemon sorbet or fresh fruit salad.

Presentation of the Bottle:

A timeless yet traditional bottle design is a Godet signature, and each Single Grape bottle exemplifies this with its stunning presentation. Elegant detailing on the label and the wax seal stopper not only reinforce the superior quality of this rare find, but equally act as a subtle reminder of the tradition and heritage of the estate with its 500 year history.

As always, the Godet Coat of Arms is present, which was bestowed upon the family by King Louis XIV, the three glasses featured not only symbolize the fact they are kings of their craft, that Cognac is in their blood, but equally that the family have had a huge influence on Cognac's popularity both in the past and the present, and are innovators for the future.

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.
