DUDOGNON GRANDE CHAMPAGNE RESERVE COGNAC
The Dudognon family have grown grapes in the small town of Lignières-Sonneville since 1776. This region is the heart of the famed Grande Champagne of Cognac, whose soil is largely composed of Campanian chalk. Spirits from this premier cru are especially renowned for their tremendous length. After the Second World War, Raymond Dudognon raised the domaine's reputation to new levels with his close attention to detail and minimal intervention of his spirits.
Following Raymond's death, Claudine Dudognon took over along with her husband Gerald Buraud. The Dudognon-Burauds are staunch traditionalists who distill only the Ugni Blanc grown on their properties. Their two alambics distill roughly 450-200 hl a.p. per year (100 barrels). The eau de vie from their fine parcels is aged in their small, rustic chai. These cognacs originate from soils that are not treated with chemicals or nitrates. The decisions during distillation are done with the glass in hand rather than with scientific instruments. The wood for their barrels is air-dried for five years next to the chai.
While many cognacs are laden with permitted additives (sugar, boisé, caramel), the only additive used in Dudognon cognacs is water. Because of this, their color is fairly light, their sweetness comes from only naturally concentrated fruit, while their length, like the finest spirits from the Grand Champagne, is counted in minutes. Today, Claudine and Gerald continue to elevate Dudognon's cognacs to new heights, frequently winning prizes and gathering tremendous international press.
