The super-blends encapsulate the best of our vineyard, terroirs and family expertise.
They can rest for ages, sometimes even centuries, snuggled up in oak in the weaving aisles of our cellars, deliberately forgotten from generation to generation. They come to life once bottled, reaching their upmost maturity and are then found on the tables of those who, mad, powerful or passionate only seek the unique, the authentic, the best.
1588. King Henri IV rewards Bonaventure Godet for the quality of his ‘brand-wijn’, placing this new Maison under the protection of the French Crown. Bonaventure is the first Godet to start our adventure, the Dutchman who burnt the white wine from La Rochelle to create ‘brand-wijn’, the ancestor of cognac. Today his creation still inspires our 15th generation cellar-master Jean- Edouard Godet.
Renaissance is a loving conversation with the angels. The skilful blending of over a dozen vintages of 1er Cru Grande Champagne dating from 1848 to 1940, it is the magical result of a legacy of fifteen generations of Godets.
Though having rested for such a long time, Renaissance still hits the nose as passionate and full of life, a first vertigo which then slowly reveals fine notes of fresh jasmine, almond, prickly pear and leatherwood honey.
Renaissance gives birth to the "Cognacs d'Or" of our Maison. This very limited edition comes from the rarest of casks and contains our dearest eaux-de-vie.
