Lecat distillery is situated on a family estate in Saint Fraigne, a commune in Charente in southwestern France.

Jean Luc Lassoudière came back to Saint Fraigne to rebuild the family farm and give birth to a new vineyard since the phylloxera crisis of the 1870s destroyed a large part of vines in the Cognac region.

A hundred years later, the farm started producing a sufficient amount of quality Wine that allowed them to supply it to major Cognac houses.

They own approximately 25 Ha of vines, of which 20 are used for producing Cognac. The remaining grapes are used in the production of Pineau, grape juice, and red Wine.

Their Cognac vineyards are mainly planted with Ugni Blanc (90%), while the rest is populated with a mixture of Colombard and Folle Blanche. 

As soon as the grapes are ready, usually early in October, the harvest begins, followed by a distillation period of 5 months, between November and March.

Distillation takes place in their 40 years old traditional Charentais Alembic (copper still). Aging is done exclusively in French oak barrels with a capacity of 270 to 450 liters.

The Lecat range boasts an incredible award-winning line-up of subtly nuanced Cognacs.

What does Lecat taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Lecat Cognac. It's based on all Lecat drinks in our large database and gives you a chance to taste Lecat before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
