A De Fussigny Cognac
In a traditionally conservative environment, A de Fussigny brought in the idea of modern luxury.
Our eaux de vie
We choose to focus on the two most prestigious growth areas, the Petite and Grande Champagne. This is to enhance the quality, fitnesse and complexity of our cognac.
We neatly distilled pursuant to the traidtional Charentaise method in small pot stills.
Furthremore, we distilled them a first time, giving a cloudy distillate called “brouillis”. Moreover, we distill the brouillis a second time. It will go through the exact same process. Subsequently, it is giving what is referred to as the “bonne chauffe”. And, we age the heart of this second distillate for at least two years in French oak barrels to be eligible for sale as a cognac.
The aging process
In addition, the location of A de Fussigny is right on the banks of the Charente River. Nevertheless, it provides our cellars with a favorable humidity level. After the distillation process, we transfer our eaux de vie into a French oak barrels and age it slowly for several years until they reach maturity.
Furthermore, our seasoned master blender perpetuates an ancestral expertise and savoir-faire. He secretly selects hundreds of eaux de vie and blends them to obtain a unique style and quality standard, specific to A de Fussigny, combining balance, finesse and complexity.
