One for the connoisseurs.

Delpech Fougerat Cognacs have been crafted in the heart of the Petite Champagne since 1777. Today, Delpech Fougerat preserves the rich tradition of the distillery and its vineyard. Distilling blends of all ages with lees in traditional stills that are unique to the Charente region, some of the Cognacs in their cellars actually date back to the beginning of the 1800s. Their vineyards extend for 100 hectares around the terroirs of Petite Champagne and Fins Bois.

Crafted from Ugni-Blanc grapes mostly from the Fins Bois area, Delpech Fougerat XO Cognac is a bright, fruity, and balanced Cognac that’s appreciated by true connoisseurs. The Wines are distilled twice and the finest eaux-de-vie are blended together to perfection and aged for at least a decade in Limousin oak. The elegant palate is complex with spicy pepper and vanilla, supported by coffee and leather. In 2021, this XO Cognac was awarded the Silver Spirits Selection by Concours Mondial de Bruxelles. Savor this one neat and lose the ice.

Laws concerning Cognac-making are strict as hell. Only three types of grapes may be used, and they can only be harvested in October; Cognac must be aged for at least two years in barrels made from French oak - and get this, from one of two specific forests! Then, the stills must be of a particular French shape (no, not the baguette shape); and we guess La Marseillaise has to be sung during the entire process.
Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavor usually found in extra-aged fortified wines (Port, Sherry, Madeira, Marsala …) and fruit-based Spirits, namely Cognacs, Calvados, and Armagnac. It appears in Cognac after roughly 10 years of maturing in oak casks, becoming more intense over the years.
Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
There are six different wine-growing areas (crus) authorized to produce Cognac - in descending order of prestige: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, and Bois Ordinaires.
Believe it or not, the French aren’t all that fond of Cognac. In fact, they export nearly 90% of their production.
The wine used for Cognac is very dry, acidic, and thin but excellent for distillation and aging.
