History of Francois Voyer
The Chauchet-Voyer family have been cultivating their vineyards since the French Revolution in the villages of Verrières and Ambleville, both prime locations in the Grande Champagne region and home to many Cognac producers. At the end of the nineteenth century, Paul André was one of only a handful of winegrowers in the area distilling the fruits of his harvest himself rather than selling it. Today, thanks to him, the oldest vintage in Voyer's cellar is more than 70 years old.
Staying true to their region, François Voyer Cognac is made solely with grapes from the Grande Champagne. The family distills and bottles everything in-house in order to oversee every detail and uphold their traditional values in Cognac making. The expert knowledge of the family has been passed from father to son for five generations, since 1870.
Francois Voyer Today
Dedicated to maintaining a sustainable agriculture approach to protect biodiversity and public health, François Voyer was one of the first 20 domains to obtain the High Environmental Value (HEV) certification. This certification is only given by the Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac (BNIC) organisation following a thorough auditing procedure.
Today, the house of François Voyer works with many winegrowers from several communes in the Grande Champagne region. The house was passed on to its current Cellar Master, Pierre Vaudon, to carry on its legacy for years to come. In his hands, the company has been the recipient of numerous awards and accolades, including the coveted Gold Oak Leaf from the San Francisco World Spirit Competition
Although François Voyer Cognac can be found in over 30 countries around the world, it’s still one of France’s best-hidden treasures. Once you seek it out, you won’t regret it.
