THE COGNACS ARE CRAFTED 100% FROM THE FIRST GROWTH OF THE COGNAC REGION : GRANDE CHAMPAGNE.

GRAPE VARIETY Mainly Ugni Blanc.

VINIFICATION Grapes are crushed and pressed (between September and October). Selected yeasts and daily fermentation control. Juices ferment without the addition of sulfur dioxyd. The wine is kept upon its lees (necessary for the development of the cognac bouquet). Distillation can start when the wine process is done to March 31st at the latest (AOC COGNAC rules).

DISTILLATION The wine is transformed into cognac by the time honoured process of double distillation, the Charente method of double heating in the traditionnal pot still.

MATURING In french oak barrels mainly from the Limousin forest.

TASTING To be enjoyed neat at 20°C to 25°C (70° to 80°F), start with the nose to discover all the power, finesse and subtely of the first Cognac growth, before taking a confortable sip to be rolled slowly around the palate before swallowing.

AGE OF OUR COGNACS Our cognacs are all crafted from a blend of lots of different years. For sure, our strategy is to age our Cognacs much longer than the minimum required by the regulation, especially for the eau-de-vie crafted from the Grande Champagne. Generally these cognacs require long ageing in casks to achieve full maturity. TASTING

“It takes decades to make a rare and exceptional cognac. One generation makes cognac for the next generation. Patience is decidedly a virtue!”
