FRANCOIS VOYER VS “GRANDE CHAMPAGNE” COGNAC
Since the time of the French Revolution their vines have been cultivated in the sun-drenched vineyards of the old stone villages of Verrieres and Ambleville; two villages with an exceptional reputation for fine cognac in the Grande Champagne Cru, the Premier Cru of Cognac. In this fine ’terroir’ the Chauchet-Voyer family have harvested the grapes, distilled wine and aged the resulting eau de vie in oak barrels for 5 generations. At the end of the 19th century, Paul Andre was one of a very few vine growers who distilled his own wine production. As a result, they were bequeathed a Paradise cellar which holds, amongst other distinguished cognacs, one that is a gold medal winner in the 50 year old category of a unique competition held in Segonzac (the capital of the Grand Champagne Premier Cru)!
