Cognac Gautier Frères. ca. 1907.
"Although Gautier is one of France's oldest cognac distillers, there's nothing old-fashioned about this ebullient eyeful bringing forth her vineyard-fresh bounty. You'd think that she'd appear at least slightly burdened beneath the heft of these hardy bunches as she trips the vine fantastic; the knowledge that she's delivering a taste this enormous, however, keeps the spring in her step. This enterprise, which survives to this day, was established by Guy Gautier in 1697... Gautier's success was partly due to the fact that he sided with the insurrectionists in one of the religious wars that took place in his time; when they won, he was named governor of the Cognac province, and he in turn passed its name to the brandy he had produced" (Cappiello/Rennert, p. 103).
