Growth area & soil: Petite Champagne
Secrets of the Past: Michel Bureau Le Secret Cognac
Sourced from Petite Champagne, Michel Bureau Le Secret Cognac was distilled in a small Charentais still by Alphonse Bobin over 60 years ago and matured in 300-liter red barrels. This forms part of a range from Michel Bureau Cognac which features age-old eaux-de-vie bottled after being handed down from generation to generation. The full name of this release, ‘Le Secret des Dames-Jeanne d'Alphonse’, references the secrets held by Cognac distillers of the past and the mystery of knowledge handed down.
The history of the House of Michel Bureau dates back to 1893, when a man by the name of Victor Albert founded a vineyard near Guimps, a small village in the Petite Champagne growing region. By 1914, Victor had acquired an alembic still and started making his own eaux-de-vie. Today, Ghislaine and Jean-Luc Bureau run the company with their son Olivier. Within this small, independent family structure, they do everything from A to Z, with particular attention paid to the aging of their Cognacs. The farm is in the process of obtaining an HVE (High Environmental Value) certification and also produces wildflower honey which can be ordered directly from the producer.
