Cognac from France

Found 1304
French cognac should be described only with superlatives — the most refined, the most noble, of the highest quality. Only the result of the distillation of white French wine can be called French cognac. The Decree of 1909 clearly defines the territory on which cognac can be made. It is the neighborhood of the city of Cognac in the Charente department.

Cognac from France is made only from certain grape varieties, the main of which is Ugni Blanc. Alcohols should be made from the raw material of six regions: Grand Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois and Bois Ordinaries. These regions differ greatly in soil types and climatic conditions, so cognacs from different terroirs have individual characteristics.

In the Cognac neighborhood, there are many old cognac houses. Jean-Paul Camus, the owner of one of the best houses, said: "It’s easy to produce beautiful cognac. All you need is great-grandfather, grandfather and father, who devoted their entire lives to it.” Most cognac houses have existed for a few centuries already, for instance Hennessy since 1765. Our catalog presents the best time-proven French cognacs: Courvoisier, L'Heureux, Remy Martin and others. On the page of each manufacturer, you can learn about the history and characteristics of the house.
