As the saying goes, all Cognac is brandy – but not all brandy is Cognac. Cognac is distilled wine, or brandy, and often referred to as eau de vie. Of course, in order to be called Cognac, the brandy must come from the Cognac region in France, and it must be made according to strictly-defined regulations. Located about a hundred miles north of Bordeaux, this twenty-mile region is called the “golden circle,” encompassing Cognac and the second distilling town of Jarnac.
Since 1680, generations of the Lhéraud family have lived in the same 10th-century house in the small village of Lasdoux in the heart of the Petite Champagne region. The family’s first cognac was made in 1802. Guy, Andrée and Laurent Lhéraud are heirs to the their precious eaux-de-vie, where aging is an art and maturity is to be treasured.
