A 60-year old-Grande Champagne Cognac in a 50cl bottle

The Jean Fillioux N°1 Cognac is an exceptional 60-year-old Grande Champagne delight. Only produced in very small volumes, around 30 to a hundred bottles each year maximum, it's fresh and fruity, and showcases the very best of why this growth region is rightly determined to be the 'premier cru'. Whilst it offers a powerful tasting experience, it does so in a rounded, smooth, and ultimately satisfying manner. Sleeping in the cellars of Juillac-le-Coq for over half a century, it is a beauty to behold.

Maxime Merlet, Export and Marketing Manager of the Jean Fillioux estate says that “in France most of the time, these bottles are sold by word of mouth - there’s not enough for everyone.”

It is from this chalky soil that the finest and purest eaux-de-vie can be extracted. The Grande Champagne is known as the ‘Premier Cru’ and is characterized by rolling hills and sun-soaked vines. There is no place quite like it for producing very fine Cognacs, and its soil has millions of years of fossilization and an optimum maritime climate to thank for its high quality.

Pascal and Christophe, the Master Blenders of Jean Fillioux, use the Ugni Blanc grape which is the perfect grape for producing distillation wine. They are high acidity and low alcohol (between 9% and 10,5%) and contain very few tannins. The harvest takes place between the end of September and the beginning of October, producing a very delicate wine which is distilled in the Charentais pot-still through double distillation.

Throughout the generations, the ‘Maitre de Chai’ of the Fillioux family have all been blessed with an excellent “nose”. Their estate, La Pouyade, is located at the heart of the ‘Golden Triangle’ in the Grande Champagne. 

Jean Fillioux No.1 Cognac Awards and Accreditations

  • Elected “Favourite” by Terre de Vins magazine in 2001 who also described it as “a dense Cognac which surprises with panache”.
  • Elected « Eau-de-vie Number 1 Worldwide » by Terre de Vins Magazine in 2017
Presentation of the Jean Fillioux Hors d'Age No.1 Cognac

Produced in a 50cl size bottle, the presentation is wonderfully traditional. The bottle is designed to show off the wonderful color of the liquid within and perfectly complemented by the old style label.

Serving Suggestions

A Cognac to be enjoyed in the traditional manner, perhaps sipped in the company of good friends or family, and with other connoisseurs who will also appreciate its delightful complexity. Definitely one for special occasions.
