The best Cognac Brandies by Bestwine • Online

Cognac Brandy is a spirit protected by an AOC (controlled designation of origin), and obtained by the distillation of white wine. Cognac Brandy is exclusively produced in France in a precisely delimited region around Cognac, part of Charente, most of Charente Maritime and some parts of Dordogne and the Deux-Sèvres. Cognac Brandy must respect specific rules and regulations in its production to obtain the denomination “Cognac”. For this reason, the skills needed to elaborate Cognac Brandy have been included in the inventory of the French intangible cultural heritage since 2020.

Cognac Brandy can be categorised into different vintages according to the locality of the variety of grapes:

  • Cognac Grande Champagne: 1st class Cognac Brandy where the most refined spirits originate.
  • Cognac Petite Champagne: extremely delicate spirit
  • Cognac Fine Champagne : a mixture of Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne
  • Cognac Borderies: spirits with a more rapid maturation than Grande and Petite Champagne
  • Cognac Fins Bois: larger area of production which is characterised by fruitier spirits.
  • Cognac Bons Bois: spirits which have a taste linked to their zone of production.
  • Cognac Bois ordinaires ou à terroir : rapid maturation with oceanic influences.

Cognac Brandy can be declined in several denominations according to its maturation:

  • Cognac Extra Old or Cognac XO: Cognac Brandy which has been aged for 10 years at the very least in an oak cask.
  • Cognac Very Superior Old Pale or Cognac VSOP: Cognac Brandy which has been aged for at least 5 years in an oak cask.
  • Cognac Very Special or Cognac VS: Cognac Brandy which has been aged for at least 2 years in an oak cask.

Cognac Brandy is an alcohol linked to a certain soil, and whose classification of vintages is established by law, according to the type of soil and climate of each sector. These controlled designations of origin were settled in 1860 by the geologist Henri Coquard, then officialised by decree on 1st May 1909.

Cognac Brandy comes from white grape juice which is fermented for 5 to 7 days. This alcoholic liquid is distilled twice in pot stills then aged in an oak cask for at least 2 years to become precious Cognac brandy. Cognac Brandy is also used to make other liqueurs, notably Grand Marnier which is a mixture of a distillate of bitter oranges and Cognac brandy.
