A trip to southwest France is a lively tutorial in savoring the spirit — and the landscape.
Jean-Luc Montembault's insight:
The NY Times reporter reminds here there is no better way to discover the cognac than to come to the source and to be accompanied by a guide who will open hidden doors of distilleries and cooperages for a successful experience in the Cognac vineyard.

Jean-Luc Montembault's insight:
There are several ways to find a great cognac. 

One is to have next door a wine shop or a bar specializing in spirits. 

The very best one way is touring the vineyard of Cognac, South-West of France.. 

Next to the major brands there are 200 craft producers willing to let you discover their estate with its traditional distillery. 

There you meet the owner and, with him or her, you taste family's products that have been aging for decades. 

 Amazing experience for cognac aficionados !
