History of Pasquet Cognac

You have to look back to the early 1970s to discover the roots of Pasquet Cognac. Husband and wife, Jean Luc and Marie Francoise worked their Grande Champagne vineyards in the manner that all Cognac farmers had done for many centuries. But, after 22 years, when their carefully tended vines began to show signs of poor health, they decided to take what in 1994 was a truly radical step. And that was to turn their production technique over to one that was totally organic.

Four short years later, they were rewarded by being presented with the coveted 'Agricultural Biologique' status, meaning they could market their Cognacs as organic. Five years later, and the first such Cognac came to market; the L'Organic VS Terroir.

Pasquet Cognac Today

As the world became more and more aware of the importance of organic, so the range of Jean Luc Pasquet's Cognacs increased. Two years after their first organic Cognac launch, the Organic VSOP followed. Today, just the same as in the mid 1990s, no synthentic chemicals, pesticides, or fertilizers are used in any stage of the growth and production process.

Originally most of their seven hectares of premier cru vineyards were planted with Ugni Blanc grapes. But some years back the decision was taken to grow some Folle Blanche which, although more complex to grow successfully, adds a depth to the eaux-de-vie the house can produce.

News, Products, and Anecdotes

Today the range of organic Cognac produced by Pasquet numbers three. There's a VS, VSOP, and XO. However, true to their unique and innovative style, they've taken the decision to not to name them in the traditional manner. Instead they follow the style more well-known for whisky, whereby they are stated by the age of the blend. So 04, 07, and 10 describes the age of the blend. This is a rarity in the world of Cognac, and a clever 21st century marketing ploy.

In addition to their organic Cognac, Jean Luc Pasquet have a small range of much older Cognacs–each steeped in tradition and with a wonderful family related back story. The house remains a family run affair, with much of the publicity and brand awareness being promoted by Jean Pasquet's enterprising wife, Amy.
