Cognac is one of the eaux-de-vie of Charente wines with a controlled designation of origin (AOC) and resulting from a strict traditional distillation method which is double heating in a Charentais still. The winegrowers make this eau-de-vie of wine which comes mainly from the Ugni-Blanc grape must but it is possible to find Colombard and Folle Blanche. However this is not to be confused with Armagnac which has been distilled in stills. Time must act. This long moment allows the Eau-de-Vie to pass from a clear color to a beautiful amber color. The brandies that deserve it will spend several years in these barrels. They will start with new barrels and finish with red barrels.
The share of Angels is compulsory for the aging of Eaux-de-Vie in barrels in the cellars. It allows you to obtain, depending on the humidity of the cellar, different tasting notes. The Part of the Angels is the loss that allows the gain because what evaporates gives what remains an exceptional quality.
This is why we find in cognacs fruit aromas with more finesse. Among all the terroirs, it is a spirit specific to its vineyard with a strong aromatic diversity. You should also know that cognac occurs in several vintages like Grande champagne, Fine champagne, petite champagne, (more info here). Some older vintage cognacs or old stocks even have their own decanter and are entirely intended for tasting.
