The Sommelier’s Touch — Redefining Tradition

In the wine-growing region surrounding the town of Cognac, white grapes ripen on hillslopes warmed by the summer sun. Only the finest grapes are fermented and then slowly double distilled to create eaux de vie – a brandy spirit with the complexity and depth of a fine wine unique to the craft of Cognac.

Guided by EXSTO’s Master Blender Géraud Vallantin-Dulac, EXSTO sommelier and aroma connoisseur Julie Dupouy chose to work with 15 small producers from the Cognac region, selecting only eight of the best eaux de vie, all of which have spent decades aging in rare, French oak barrels.

These eaux de vie were produced in the top three terroirs of the Cognac region: Grande-Champagne and Petite-Champagne, revered for their ultra-fine, floral characters, and Borderies, the smallest of the six crus, famed for producing rare, smooth and voluptuous eaux de vie with a delicate violet aroma.

Together with Géraud, Julie has created a vital, complex blend which expresses the nuances of each eaux-de vie while synergising their distinctive qualities.

The result? A modern, elegant Cognac with a sensual, lively spirit.
