Origin – France
For our French Brandies, harvests come from different regions of France: mainly Champagne, Cognac and South of France. Our French Brandies are made from white varietals such as Colombard, Ugni-Blanc or Chardonnay.
Elaboration – France
harvesting, pressing, then fermentation during 3 weeks. White wine with strong acidity and low alcohol (9% vol) is required to lead further a good distillation.
When boiling in a pot still, the alcoholic vapors, water and numerous aromatic compounds rise upward and are collected in a condenser where they become liquid again. The distillation process is carried out twice.
We lead the ageing process in the North-East of France at Petersbach village. Brandies are patiently aged in small oak barrels of 500 liters or in bigger oak tanks. During this process, there is a 2% loss of volume per year, due to evaporation. We call it « La part des anges » (« Angels’ share »…)
Like a Cognac, different Brandies from various casks are tasted and blended together by the oenologist and cellar master team, until the final result.
A beautiful golden amber colour.
Complex, warm, subtly woody flavours with a very smooth palate.
For an aperitif, to drink neat, on the rocks, or in your favourite cocktail.
