In France, a Cognac Tasting Tour at the Source

In France, a Cognac Tasting Tour at the Source | The Cognac and its vineyards | Scoop.it
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.

How could I contradict her!

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.

Visiting a Cognac Trading House

Visiting a Cognac Trading House | The Cognac and its vineyards | Scoop.it

Perhaps I should start by defining what a trading house generally means. These companies in the main buy in distilled grape juice (Eau de Vie) and then age, blend and market the final product ...

 

Jean-Luc Montembault's insight:

Here is a very nice presentation of the work of a trading house in the Cognac country
Very nice because:
- Cognac Delamain works in the spirit and form of the traders of former times
- The explanation given by Mark, the visitor of the day, is both a fair and good summary
- Photos of Mark, professional photographer, are splendid.

This article on the visit I made with Mark makes it perfectly the atmosphere of the discrete world of the cognac.

Wow. So much has happened in the past twenty-four hours that I'm not sure I'll be able to go in...
Jean-Luc Montembault's insight:

Our neighbors, traditional cognac distillers, make the front page. It's nice to see them presenting a different philosophy to produce cognac.
