Olivier Six, EMW Fine Wines, COO

We are thrilled to begin our distribution partnership with Cognac Godet. Godet is an artisan producer, 100% family owned for over 432 years, with a unique product line that includes classic cognac and also single grape variety and single terroir cognacs, a rare legacy of cognac, that fits perfectly within our portfolio of world class estates from around the world. This is one of the most important and historical independent estates in Cognac. At the same time China is one of the world's most important markets for Cognac. We look forward to building the market in China together.”

Jean Edouard Godet, 15th generation of Cognac Godet – Owner

"For 15 generations our family has been elaborating cognac in La Rochelle by the sea where our business began so many years ago. In this unique location our cognacs are distilled, aged and blended using the experience and knowledge passed down from father to son over generations.  In this seaside location we handcraft a beautiful expression of cognac following the traditions of our family since 1588.

Today we are proud to announce our new cooperation with EMW, a company with a great family spirit. We both share the same objective, to deliver authenticity and great quality to the curious consumers who care about the products they consume. China is a remarkable market for cognac with many connoisseurs and many opportunities for new consumers to discover this beautiful expression of grape, history and place."

Cognac Godet – Since the Cognac Exists

With a history dating back to 1588, the House of Godet ranks amongst the oldest Cognac houses. The Godet family has been based in the seaside town and former trading hub La Rochelle for over 400 years. Since the very beginning of Cognac production, they have played an important role in perfecting this culture. Cognac Godet has been in the hands of the same family for an astonishing 15 generations, who have placed tradition and excellence at the heart of their business. Godet is also one of the few Cognac producers who focus on cultivating and using the Folle Blanche grape variety, the original Cognac grape.

Exported around the world across a network of 60 national distributors, the House of Godet aims to express Cognac’s multiple terroirs and emotions through a portfolio of varied, traditional and modern cognacs. Limited production, long maturation, hand-crafted and on demand bottling of tailor made cuvées are some of Godet’s deep beliefs.

Edouard Duval, EMW Fine Wines CEO & Owner of Champagne Edouard DUVAL

 

“It is with great pleasure to announce that a small allocation of my newly crafted Champagne will be available to our network of Champagne lovers. The Domaine Sainte Eulalie was acquired by my family in the 1950s and since I took over the estate in 2000, I put all my passion to craft exceptional Champagne that I’m happy to share with our clientele in Greater China.”

Domaine Sainte Eulalie and Champagne Edouard DUVAL – one of the only historical Domaine still standing in Champagne

 

Established in the Côte des Bar region, Champagne Edouard DUVAL is crafted from the best selected grapes solely coming from its own estate – the Domaine Sainte Eulalie. This ancient Priory was founded almost a thousand years ago, in 1095, by the monks of Cluny Abbey. It holds a unique position in Champagne as one of the only historical estates still in existence with 28 hectares of contiguous vineyards producing Champagne. All the grapes are estate grown using sustainable farming methods and certified “Viticulture durable en Champagne” (VDC).

 

Champagne Edouard DUVAL is produced with very little intervention, long cellar aging, and low dosage to best express the unique terroir and to fulfill the guiding vision, “To perpetuate a wine cultivation respectful of Cluny Abbey’s heritage in each of our champagnes.”
