What is Cognac?
Cognac is a unique type of brandy born from passion and blending of specific region white wine. It is the most complex spirit to make, and it takes a long time to produce. To be classified as Cognac, the distiller must follow strict manufacturing standards, under regulations mandated by French laws, regulating the quality of every style of cognac. The slightest deviation from these regulations and standards turns it into ordinary brandy. Every cognac style must be;
- Made from the white wine grapes cultivated in the Cognac region of France. It earns its name from these regions.
- Distilled twice using copper pot stills.
- Aged for a minimum of two years in French oak barrels, Limousin or Tronçais. Most cognacs spend a considerably long period in the wood than the minimum legal requirement.
Styles and Classifications
The quality of a cognac depends mostly on the aging duration. Once distillation is complete, maturation takes place in Limousin or Tronçais oak barrels for at least two years. The ages are calculated for the youngest component used in the blend. The Eaux de vies blended in this spirit can come from a wide range of ages. With no age labels, Eaux de vies rest in the barrel for as long as it takes to fully realize the potential of the Eaux de vie and achieve the desired result. This aging can be confusing, and different cognac styles are categorized based on the minimum age of the Eaux de vies in the blend. The legally defined categories include:
- VS (very superior) – the bottle is labeled with three stars for the youngest cognac and is aged for at least two years.
- VSOP (very superior old pale) - aged for a minimum of 4 years
- Napoleon – previously an unofficial classification, was added from 2018 April to indicate the blend aged for at least six years.
- XO (extra old) – previously labeled for the blend aged for at least six years. This was changed in April 2018, and now it represents blend age for at least ten years.
These categories are subject to update to adapt the current standards of the existing products and include new premium categories. Adding a new official category allows the brands to put more products on shelves, offering consumers additional choices. The France appellation board closely monitors the specifications for classifying these categories. Other cognac style names denoting superior quality are invented by the specific houses to widen the choice horizon. These names include Reserve, Extra, Vintage, Cordon Blue, and Paradis.
Cognac displays a myriad of flavors and aromas. It usually has a fruit-forward profile with vibrant, stone fruit flavors of juicy pears, dried apricots, and earthy. The aromas are enticing and provocative, inviting you in with luscious fruit scents. It reveals complex aromas of bright citrus, dried peach, raisins, vanilla, nutmeg, mushrooms, and chocolate. Most younger expressions often tend to be vibrant and fruity, expressing notes of fresh grapes and oak spice.

Whether young or old, this is truly a special spirit and balanced with perfect harmony that makes it unique, nothing like it.
