Covering fifty acres of land in the heart of Grande Champagne, Jean Fillioux Cognac is an independent, family run estate that has been producing eaux-de-vie of high quality through four generations. Proud of their traditional methods, the current owner, Pascal J. Fillioux, ensures that not one bottle leaves the estate without being controlled by him from start to finish.
Tasting notes: A velvety nose with notes of vanilla and honey. Very complex and unctuous palate with jammy aromas, prune, orange, then notes of cinnamon and black chocolate. Very long finish with notes of liquorice and spices coming through, toasted coffee
Tasting review by The Last Drop:
Nose: A waft of old roses, charged with a touch of citrus
Palate: You will find great complication. First, rich old preserved fruits. Then, a burst of flowers. Finally, the bite of the ancient eau-de-vie – the ‘fire’ that belongs only to Cognac
