The Atlantic Ocean gives us a powerful feeling. It is a source of simple raw sensory pleasure, of inspiration, wonder and boundless energy, that only means something if shared. A deep breath, the strength of the wind, the scent of the sea spray, the shades of grey, blue and green. The energy of the light too, reflecting on the elegantly understated facades of La Rochelle, the White City, on the west coast. Looking out on the horizon, this last untamed expanse, you feel both vulnerable and strong.
The ocean is cruel, generous, fascinating and bountiful. You feel incredibly humble in the face of the unyielding ocean. Tasting a Godet cognac, is a moment of “wild amazement”, triggered by contemplating the exquisite beauty of nature; a strong powerful living force, constantly in motion. Like our eaux de vie.
