About Gourry De Chadeville Overproof Cognac
Gourry De Chadeville Overproof Cognac is produced by PM Spirits, aka “The Provider of Geeky Spirits.” PM was founded by Nicolas Palazzi, a man raised amongst the vineyards of Bordeaux France, mentored on the art of Cognac by a man known as “Mr. X." The avant-garde spirits producer has a diverse portfolio of extraordinarily unique and limited artisanal rums, brandies, whiskies, Armagnacs, Calvados, liqueurs, and eaux-de-vie, as well as a variety of specialty bitters and vermouths.
Gourry de Chadeville was founded in 1619. Situated in the capital of the Grande Champagne appellation, Segonzac, it is the oldest Cognac House in the region. Pierre Goursat Gourry’s family has been distilling Cognac since the early 17th Century. Taking over his family’s estate in 1996 Pierre is now the 15th generation distiller working this small (10ha) estate. PM Spirits has been selecting some of the best single casks from his cellar and bottling them full-strength.
This elegant Gourry de Chadeville Overproof is distilled exclusively from 100% Ugni Blanc grapes. The eaux-de-vie is double distilled in a copper pot-still on the lees, in minimal 25 hectoliter quantities before being matured for thirty months in seasoned Limousin oak and finished in foudre for six months (a total of three years). This artisanal gem is a rare addition to any collection.

Cognac is a type of brandy produced in the Cognac region of France.
Because the French take it very seriously, there are numerous rules cognac makers have to follow not to fall “short” into the brandy category.
The white wine from the specific grapes (Ugni blanc) has to be doubly distilled in a copper pot still before being aged for at least two years in oak casks from which the wood can only come from two specific forests in France (Limousin or Tronçais).
Depending on the age, there are three types of cognac, the youngest V.S. (Very Special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and the X.O. (Extra Old)
