Description

Jean Fillioux Vintage 1953 Millésime Refurbished Cognac

The Jean Fillioux Vintage 1953 Millésime Refurbished Cognac is one of life's treasures.  This limited edition, private collection Cognac is one of the (many) success stories from the house of Jean Fillioux. As the name suggests, it’s a single harvest vintage from the year 1953, made with eaux-de-vie sourced exclusively from the Premier Cru. The 1953 vintage is highly regarded; the grapes that year produced particularly ripe concentrated wines with exceptional balance and harmony.

Founded in 1880 by Honoré Fillioux, the House of Filioux is now run by his great-grandson Pascal. The famous Domaine de La Pouyade - their 63-acre family vineyards - lie in the ‘golden triangle’ of Grande Champagne, between the Angeac-Champagne, Juillac-le-Coq and Verrières communes. For five generations the family have been tending to the soil here, growing Ugni Blanc grapes which produce wines that are low in alcohol and tannins, but high in acidity - the perfect combination for distilling flavorful eaux-de-vie. The micro terroir of the golden triangle has for a long time been regarded to produce the finest parcels of Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie, but only with the aid of extended aging to reach their full potential. This is how Jean Fillioux Réserve Familiale Cognac typifies the very best Cognac has to offer: exceptional terroir combined with good age. It doesn’t get better than that. 

Fillioux Cognac is famous for being an intimate, small-scale family production - and indeed, Pascal Fillioux oversees everything from the soil and the grapevines to the distillation and bottling. Carrying on skills that have been passed down from generation to generation, his estate belongs to a select group of family-owned Cognac producers that have maintained an appreciation for quality and centuries-old traditions. Thanks to Pascal’s dedication and unwavering loyalty, the House of Fillioux continue to create true masterpieces of Cognac to this day.
