Pasquinet Cognac is a brand that represents strength and revival. It was established in 1945 by the children of Jean Ricard following a period of hardship. Jean Ricard was an entrepreneur who established himself in the Cognac region by investing in a small estate in Juillac Le Coq, the ‘Domaine Du Foucaudat,’ situated right in the heart of the Grande Champagne cru. Today, the Pasquinet Cognac vineyard comes in at 13,200 hectares, and the spirit of the brand is being faithfully upheld by Nicolas and Patrick. With international experience and endless creativity, they are a truly formidable force.
