Cognac named after the town of Cognac in France, is a variety of brandy. It is produced in the wine-growing region surrounding the town from which it takes its name, in the French Departments of Charente and Charente-Maritime. For a distilled brandy to bear the name Cognac, an Appellation d'origine contrôlée, its production methods must meet certain legal requirements. In particular, it must be made from specified grapes of which Ugni Blanc, known locally as Saint-Emilion, is the one most widely used at the present time. In addition, the brandy must be twice distilled in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels from Limousin or Tronçais. Cognac matures in the same way as whiskies and wine when aged in barrels, and most cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement. Just a little extra information cognac VS means Very Special; cognac VSOP means Very Special Old Pale; cognac XO means Extra Old.

Cognac has a smoothness and character of its own, often with an uncanny fresh grape sweetness. A common misconception is that all French brandy is Cognac. In fact, Cognac comes from the region of the same name in France, about 100 miles north of Bordeaux on the Atlantic coast. Cognac is made from wine that is fermented from whole grapes skins — seeds and all — and then double distilled in pot stills. It is aged in new oak casks for one year, and then transferred to used oak casks for more aging to prevent the Cognac from taking on too much tannin from the virgin oak (tannin imparts that dry, puckery feeling in your mouth). Labels on Cognac bottles use special abbreviations that are designed to denote the quality of the spirit inside: V = Very S = Special O = Old P = Pale F = Fine X = Extra C = Cognac E = Especial

The final blend determines the label designation. V.S. Has Cognacs that are aged at least two years. V.S.O.P Cannot have Cognacs that are aged less than four years. X.O. All the Cognacs in a blend are aged more than ten years.

A label designation of Fine Champagne means that more than 50-percent of the grapes used to make the Cognac came from the Grande Champagne region. If all the grapes come from either of the top-two producing regions (Grande or Petite Champagne), the label can carry the specific region designation.
