Le Cognac du Jean
The Pasquet “L’esprit de famille” Jean is a Grande Champagne Cognac blend of 1969 and 1977 eaux-de-vie from Jean Blais, who was a fellow vintner and distiller, as well as neighbor of the Pasquet estate. The producers therefore hold this Cognac close to their heart.
The bottling brings the two families together, and is a fine tribute to their friend and neighbor. The tale does not end there. Both families also come from outside of Eraville, and Jean took Jean-Luc under his wing, to share his ancestral secrets.
Since then, Jean-Luc went on to assist Clairette in the cellars, and as a result blended these two vintages with her. This is a Cognac with plenty of character, from the Ugni Blanc grapes to the eaux-de-vie - and is a fantastic tribute to the man who crafted it.
The Pasquet Jean arrives in a slim, classic bottle with a ruby red seal. The baby blue labeling denotes the artisanal craft of this house. It is created in tandem with the Pasquet Bernadette Cognac which was also made as a tribute to a close family friend.

About Pasquet Cognac
The all-organic house of Cognac Pasquet perfectly strikes the balance between the warmth of family tradition, and innovative savoir-faire. In order to revive a plot of vines during the 1990s, the Pasquet family reached deep into their ancestral history for its organic farming methods. It was here that they found a beautiful equilibrium in the ecosystem of their vines, and in their Cognacs themselves. Awarded ‘Agriculture Biologique status’ in 1998, they haven’t looked back since; as they continue to craft small-batch Cognacs. With ranges such as ‘L’Organic’ and ‘Esprit de la Famille’, the Pasquet family ensures that every step of their Cognac production respects the environment. And the resulting Cognacs are something very special indeed…
