The Dudognon family has produced Cognac in the small town of Lignieres Sonneville since 1776. This region is the heart of the famed Grande Champagne of Cognac, where the soil is largely composed of Campanian chalk and spirits from this premier cru are especially renowned for their tremendous length. While many cognacs are laden with permitted additives (sugar, boisé, caramel), the only additive used in Dudognon Cognac is water. Because of this, their color is fairly light and their sweetness comes only from naturally concentrated fruit. The length of this organic Cognac--some of the finest from the Grand Champagne--is counted in minutes.
