Jean-Luc Pasquet

Located in Eraville, on the border between Grande and Petite Champagne, the house of Cognac Jean-Luc Pasquet traces its origins back to 1730.

The domain was passed down from generation to generation until Jean-Luc Pasquet inherited the property in 1970. It was only in 1977 that Jean-Luc Pasquet began bottling its production.

The 14-hectare vineyard today is farmed organically - certified since 1998 - and planted with grape varieties from the Cognac region. This vineyard also has a few vines of Folle Blanche, the king grape of the Cognac region before the phylloxera crisis at the end of the 19th century. At the time, this very fragile grape gave rise to eaux-de-vie of incomparable finesse and richness, both olfactory and gustatory.

The house raises several qualities of Cognacs of different ages under labels specific to each quality. To ensure the continuity of its range of Cognacs over 20 years old at a time when its stock of old Cognacs is running out, Maison Pasquet goes out to meet the "bouilleurs de crus" (distillers) who keep hidden treasures in the privacy of their cellars. It selects a single cask and finishes working it to bring it to its ideal tasting level. Each bottle bears the producer's first name and is produced in a limited, numbered series.

Description Jean-Luc Pasquet L'Organic Folle Blanche L.XI.

This is a Cognac exclusively of 100% folle blanche grape variety, from Grande Champagne, classified Premier Cru de Cognac, placed right at the top of the qualitative hierarchy of the 6 terroirs of Cognac.

The folle blanche grape variety currently represents less than 1% of the vineyard of the "Cognac" appellation whereas it was in the past, the most used grape variety, but has been replaced due to Phylloxera: an aphid imported from the United States that has destroyed in a few years a very large part of the French vineyard.

The youngest brandies are at least 10 years old and have benefited from a long aging in the cellar of the house Jean-Luc Pasquet, ideal conditions to age the brandies in oak barrels and red barrels and thus reach an exceptional maturity and quality.

La robe is amber.

The nose highlights winter woody aromas such as sandalwood, oak wood or orange zest accompanied by spicy autumnal notes such as apricot Secs, dried fig or muscat grape.

The palate is silky, very nice sensations of truffle, nutmeg and soft leather aromas, to finish with a nice length of undergrowth.

Bottles will be kept upright, stored in a cellar away from light and noise with an optimal hygrometric degree of about 70%.

Serve in a "tulip" glass, a traditional glass for drinking its Cognac.

Wine and food pairings: enjoy after dinner, neat or as a long drink with a citrus Schweppes.
