Growth area & soil: Bois Ordinaires
Coming from the extreme west side of the Cognac region, the Mauxion Selection Bois Ordinaires Lot 89 Cognac was distilled in 1989 in a small copper pot still and aged since then in the producer's temperate cellar in Echillais, located right next to Rochefort city - previously known to be the main departure point for the trade of Cognac and salt to northern Europe. Moreover, this westerly area was the center of the production of Cognac before phylloxera ravaged the region. At that time, the Cognac was shipped by boat from Rochefort harbour and La Rochelle.
This Bois Ordinaire Lot 89 Cognac is considered as one of the oldest still available due the fact that this appellation is mainly used for the production of Pineau des Charentes and young Cognac - and not for kicking out mature well aged Cognacs. It comes from the colombard varietal which gives to this Cognac a unique and subtle taste.
Singular in smell and taste, it promises to deliver a unique and unparalleled tasting experience. One of the Cognac region's rarest finds.
About Mauxion Selection Cognac
The origin of the Mauxion family dates back to 1575 when Pierre Mauxion was born in the village of Houlette. Today the estate is still home to the Mauxion family after thirteen generations. Antoine Mauxion was the first of the family to produce eaux-de-vie, back in 1743, and since then ten generations have followed in his footsteps. Today the house of Mauxion Selection continues to embrace original traditions with regards to caring for the vineyard and producing high class, quality eaux-de-vie.
Uniquely, Mauxion Selection offers a range of single cru expressions, available a range of sizes. All of the Cognac produced by Mauxion Selection originate from the prestigious terroirs of Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois. To preserve the flavor of their eaux-de-vie, Mauxion Selection Cognac is bottled at cask strength without any blending or reduction; allowing the eaux-de-vie to develop with exceptional complexity and depth. Whilst the attentive selection process may mean that quantity is limited, it ensures a Cognac of unrivalled quality, every time.
