Coming from 4 generations of winemaker and distiller, Fanny Fougerat and her fiancé first began bottling on the family estate in November 2013. Working on 30H in Borderies (the smallest cru of the appellation) and fins Bois, all of the vineyards grow Ugni Blanc. The Fanny Fougerat cognacs are never blended; they express their own distinctive terroir and character. From vineyard to distillation, and during the ageing, she is looking for freshness, fineness and precision. These cognacs are refined and pleasant, fashioned without additives. At the end of the afternoon, or with a food pairing, in cocktails or after dinner, each suits a specific tasting moment.
