A trip to southwest France is a lively tutorial in savoring the spirit — and the landscape.
Jean-Luc Montembault's insight:

Christine Montembault's curator insight, November 17, 2017 11:28 AM
The distillation season began in the land of cognac, an ideal time to meet artisanal distillers and taste new eaux-de-vie.   

Live an exceptional moment, an out of time break of luxury and relaxation.

 I will be happy to help you organize your cognac tasting tour.
