Although a relatively new brand of cognac, the history of the vineyards and buildings that make up Thierry Bonnin Cognac can be traced back through the centuries. With a land area that’s been gradually increasing in size over the years, Thierry Bonnin not only create their own wines, cognacs and pineau, but also supply eaux-de-vie to some of the biggest names in cognac – such as Hennessy and Courvoisier. The property is known as Le Maine Michaud, and is ably run by Thierry and Jacqueline Bonnin, with the help of Guyot Poussart. Both Thierry and his wife come from farming families. They use the centuries of traditions and experience that has been passed down through the generations to create a cognac brand and legacy that they can be proud to leave for their children to inherit.
