St Rob Cognac
A cognac house that saw a 're-birth' thanks to the passion of one René-Luc Chabasse, the brand of St Rob is well represented by it's trademark phoenix - a logo that symbolises the re-birth of an estate that fell due to the French Revolution and the disposession of the rights of the nobility and clergy.

The estate covers 60 hectares of vineyards in both the Borderies and Fins Bois terroir of the region. Led by René-Luc Chabasse, the cognac house has a long and troubled history that dates back to well before the French Revolution.
History of St Rob Cognac
Once a thriving and prosperous estate, the St Robert Convent fell into rack and ruin following the French Revolution in 1789. Before that, the estate consisted of an elegant farmhouse, chapel and fresh water spring that was said to have medicinal qualities.
Centuries later, a chance visit by René-Luc Chabasse led to the re-birth of the estate, and the vision and passion of one man to restore the house and surrounding vines to their former glory.
St Rob Cognac Today
After many years of back breaking work and effort, the estate of St Rob has been restored to its former glory. Today the house produces a small but high quality range of cognacs, ranging from a VSOP through to an EXTRA quality.
