Vineyards

Organic farming is pretty unique for a cognac house.
 
Our vineyards are farmed organically, with certification by Ecocert in France.  The inspiration for farming this way was simple: we have a deep respect for the environment and organic grapes produce the purest expressions, of the varietals, and land, on which they are farmed.  We also engage in biodynamic practices to enrich the soil and protect the vines.  Our vineyards are in the Grande Champagne Cru of Cognac, the prestigious growing area. The soil is shallow clay-limestone, over limestone and chalk.  Part of the vineyard was planted by our ancestors.  (We are certified USDA Organic).

The Land

The soil is alive with the mystery of history.
Growing grapes is hard work.  We respect the land and nature by cultivating organically, after all we have a responsibility to the future generation that will inherit the land.  Organic soil contains carbon-based material that is living or was once living. Soil contains many, many different things that have been deposited over time. Organic soil also benefits the environment.

Wine Grapes

Our terroir is suitable not only for white grapes!  We lovingly cultivate red grapes, just like our close neighbours in the Bordeaux wine region!  We grow red grapes; Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc for pineau rouge and our elegant wines.
We grow white grape varieties; Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche, Colombard and Montils, for cognac and pineau. 
Lastly, we cultivate Chardonnay, that famous grape originating from the Burgundy wine region of France, for our white wine.
