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.
