Delpech Fougerat Cognac
Cognac Delpech Fougerat has two separate domains in the heart of the Petite Champagne. With a history that can be traced back to 1777, the cognac house produces blends of all ages, and have cognacs in their cellars that date back to the beginning of the 1800s. Using the Folle Blanche, Colombard and Ugni Blanc grapes, Delpech Fougerat, although relatively small in size, is enjoyed by consumers on all continents.
Led by the son of the Vinet-Delpech distillery, Jean-Baptiste, 'Les Brûleries Modernes' is a new collection of liquors to emerge almost 250 years after the family’s origins in the Cognac region.
So why “brûlerie”? The word in French means the “act of burning,” and in fact dates all the way back to the fifteenth century of Cognac production. It was at this time that the distillation process was referred to as “burning” the eaux-de-vie at the heart of Les Brûleries Modernes in traditional Charentais pot stills.

History of Cognac Delpech Fougerat
The estate of Font Gireau was owned by the family Laroche since 1777. Here, they tended the vines and created their eaux-de-vie that was sold to some of the most prestigious houses in the world of cognac. The vineyard remained under the control of the descents of the Laroche clan until 1949, when Pierre Fougerat took control.
Under his direction the vineyards prospered. He increased the size of the domain, improved the aging process along with production and was recognized within the industry. For three consecutive years the vineyards eaux-de-vie won first prize for the best produced in the Petite Champagne.
In 1976 Pierre’s son-in-law Jacques Delpech took the reins. He purchased a second estate - La Cigogne – consisting of seven hectares of vines and a walnut orchard. Jacques introduced the production of Pineau des Charentes to the house and continued to expand the production of cognac.
