Cognac from Uruguay?

RicRios | Jun 26, 200707:12 PM     10

Just came across this peculiar statement in the Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cognac_(...

"The region of Cognac, divided up into six growth areas, or crus (singular cru), covers the department of Charente-Maritime, a large part of the Charente and a few areas in Deux-Sèvres and the Dordogne. [...] The only other place where Cognac can be made is in Uruguay. After World War II, France paid its debts to ANCAP of Uruguay with Ugni Blanc, know-how for making Cognac, and the right to use the denomination."

Anybody knows a -good- Uruguayan Cognac ???
