The Dudognon family, located in the Grande Champagne town of Lignieres-Sonneville, has produced Cognac since 1776. Their spirits are made from 100% old-vine Ugni Blanc grown on deep, chalky soils. With only 10 hectares of vines, the Dudognons convert all of their grapes into wine before distilling it themselves during the early winter months. Fresh green apple and pear on the nose with touches of vanilla and baking spices. Packed texture in the mouth, honey and caramel, light nutmeg and allspice, then a hint of dark chocolate on the finish. No caramel color, no sugar, & no boise added. Bottled at 44%, makes a superb cocktail base, but is plenty tasty all on its own. You won't find a better value in the world of Cognac.
