Godet XO Fine Champagne

1 August 2010 One Comment

The Godet XO Fine Champagne is a 25 to 35 years aged cognac, made from grapes from the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne regions. Given the age and the quality of this Cognac it has a great value for money for about 60 dollars per bottle.

The appearance of the bottle, appeals to me, it looks great through its shape and metal ring!

The tasting notes of Godet XO Fine Champagne are:

The color: bright red-brown gold.
The fragrance: full and soft, smells like an combination of (Grande and Petite) Champagne Cognacs and a long matured Borderies by his flowery aromas of violets.
The taste: slightly sharp flavor, yet very sophisticated and packed with flavors of leather, wood, a hot pepper, toasted bread, honey and some fruit. Funny thing is that Cognac taste like an Whisky in the first second.
The after-taste: full and long in the mouth, after a few minutes, the taste of leather comes and stayes for a long time.
The origin: Grande and Petite Champagne.
The age: 25 to 35 years. Average of 30 years.
The price: 50-60 dollars
The price / quality ratio: a 8!

This Cognac has recieved in the past quite a number of awards for its quality:

* Golden Medal of Selection Mondial-2002 Brussels
* Golden Medal of Selection Mondial – Brussels 2000
* Golden Medal of Selection Mondial – Brussels 1997
* The International Wine and Spirit Comp Tion – Gold Winner 2000
