In the mid 19th century, the phylloxera virus spread through the Cognac vineyards, killing the majority of the vines. Up until this destruction, the Folle Blanche grape dominated the majority of vines. Post-disaster, planting the Ugni Blanc grape offered a hardier solution and it is still the main grape grown today. An insight into the taste of the vines pre-disaster, the Folle Blanche 2002 is a rare and distinctive Cognac that is delightfully delicate.
