“I spent my childhood in the Charente vineyards with my grandparents, who tended the vines at a small property in the Fins Bois. When the Augier House got in touch, straight away I felt a strong affinity for their approach and ambition: to create characterful cognacs that closely reflect the region’s grapes and soils. I tailor the way we distil to the terroirs and grapes we work with, looking to retain the character of the resulting eaux-de-vie.”
“Native from the Cognac region, I feel a great satisfaction in creating everyday Cognacs as noble as those of the Augier range, the oldest of the Cognac houses. Moreover, I am very proud to be one of the main guarantors of the quality and the typicality of these products, through numerous tastings, the composition of the blends or the qualitative monitoring of the Eaux-de-vie stocks. I am passionate about this wonderful profession where diversity makes all its richness and complexity. ”
“I was born in Cognac. My father’s a farmer, and so were my grandfather and great-grandfather. I was lucky enough to grow up on a family smallholding, which I took over and recently expanded together with my brother. We’re careful about the environment and have started farming sustainably. We supply the Augier House with wine for the Sauvage blend, a powerful, distinctive cognac that closely mirrors the Petite Champagne terroir where we have our property. We also contribute to discussions on the Augier House’s future. It’s a fascinating project that enables us to work differently.”
“I was won over by the Augier House’s dedication to rediscovering Cognac’s neglected soils and grapes. Now I supply Augier with wine from Folle Blanche grapes, a rare, historic variety that accounts for less than 1% of plantings in the appellation. The variety yields beautifully expressive, aromatic cognacs like Augier’s Le Singulier.”
