Our vineyard in a few words

The oceanic and temperate climate with its mild winters and generous sunshine, is conducive to a happy maturation of the region’s white grape varieties

Evolution of the vineyard:
Nous sommes passés de 2 ha en 1960 à 24 ha en 2010
100% du vignoble est situé en GRANDE CHAMPAGNE dans un rayon de 5 km autour de l’exploitation
30% en coteaux et 70% en plaine

Regular renewal of the vineyard
Average age : 18 years old
Establishing the strains : Double Guyot
Size: manual
Planting density: 3000 plants/ha

24 hectares of vines:
23 hectares UGNI-BLANC
1 hectare of FOLLE BLANCHE

The grape variety of cognac:
Ugni-Blanc is a late ripening and very resistant, offers two main qualities :
- a high level of acidity which guarantees a good natural preservation.
- a low alcohol content which favours a better aromatic concentration during distillation.
