Description

Le Cognac de Claude is first in the new Trésors de Famille range, which translates to Family Treasures, from the house of Pasquet. This fragrant eau-de-vie was bottled from a single 400-liter cask of Cognac which came from the Hilaire family’s Angeac-Champagne vineyards located in the Grande Champagne region.

As the name suggests, this Cognac is an ode to Claude and his wife Arlette who, although not named, was fundamental to its creation. Claude and Arlette have dedicated their lives to caring for their vineyards, family, and business as an impenetrable duo, and such was their devotion that they even planted the day after their own wedding.

A passion for hard work and viticulture runs deep through both Claude and Arlette’s veins. The vineyard from which this Cognac came belonged to Claude’s mother’s family and is today run by Claude and Arlette’s grandchildren. Arlette also comes from a line of vintners, and although she moved a few kilometers away to Claude’s family vineyard, her heart remained tied to one land.

The Hilaire’s Cognac has been distilled on the family property for as long as anyone can remember, and each member of the household contributes to the production where they are of most use. Although both Claude and Arlette distilled, it was Arlette who possessed a real flair for the wood-burning potstill and she has since taught her granddaughter Laura the art of distillery.

Today, most vintners sell almost all of their harvest, however Claude’s family has kept with tradition and instead store more than 75% of the eaux-de-vie that they craft. This stunning Grande Champagne vintage is the first in what will be a long line of exquisitely aged Cognacs to come out of the Hilaire estate.

Presentation of the bottle:

This eau-de-vie is presented in a classic cognacaise bottle featuring a vignette that appears to be handwritten. The red wax seal and light blue stamp also gives an authentic, yet understated impression to the bottle.

How to enjoy:

A single cask Cognac should be enjoyed in the classic manner, neat and at room temperature so as to appreciate all the unique nuances of the eau-de-vie.

About Pasquet Cognac

Certified organic Cognac house 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 to rediscover its organic farming methods. It was here that they found a beautiful equilibrium not only in the ecosystem of their vines, but also in the Cognacs themselves. Since being awarded ‘Agriculture Biologique’ status in 1998, they haven’t looked back, continuing to craft small-batch Cognacs that epitomize natural beauty and balance. With versatile ranges such as ‘L’Organic’ and ‘Esprit de la Famille,’ the Pasquet family ensures that every step of production respects the environment, resulting in a very special collection of Cognacs.
