After four years of maturing, a natural smoothness, with vanilla aromas and with notes of yellow-fruit flavours, begin to appear. These are the characteristics of a classic adolescent cognac.
In the 17th century, the Godet family began to drink their more mature cognacs out of a small traditional Dutch glass, one without a stem or a handle. They then began to use this glass to commercialise their cognac.
In time, drinking out of the Godet glass became a ritual, so much so that the expression to ‘boire un petit godet’ has been adopted in colloquial French to describe the act of sharing a cognac between friends.
Positioning : V.S.O.P Original shows the influence of the oak aging on cognac.
Aging: 10 years in oak casks
Blending : Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Fins Bois
Tasting Note : This cognac is characterized by very well integrated tannins combined with some elements of florality on the nose. All that tinge with hazelnuts and peach jam to create a mellow and suave cognac. A present but velvetty persistence in the mouth makes it a very pleasant and easy to drink. VSOP
