COGNAC WINE TOUR FULL DAY

DESCRIPTION:

Cognac named after the town of Cognac in France, is a variety of brandy. It is produced in the wine-growing region surrounding the town from which it takes its name. The region authorised to produce cognac is divided into six zones, including five crus. The six zones are: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bon Bois and finally Bois Ordinaire. A blend of Grande and Petite Champagne Cognacs, with at least half coming from Grande Champagne, is known as Fine Champagne. The wine is very dry, acidic, and thin, "virtually undrinkable", but excellent for distillation and aging. It may be made only from a strict list of grape varieties, if it is to carry the name of one of the crus then it must be at least 90% Ugni Blanc (known in Italy as Trebbiano), Folle Blanche and Colombard, although 10% of the grapes used can be Folignan, Jurançon blanc, Meslier St-François (also called Blanc Ramé), Sélect, Montils or Sémillon. Today depart from Bordeaux and head towards the Cognac region, one of the most famous Brandy producing areas in the world. Upon arrival, enjoy the visit and tasting in one of the most famous Cognac 'houses' to learn all there is to know about the making of this unique beverage. Then, enjoy some free time in the town of Cognac for lunch. In the afternoon, we will take you to another famous Coganc 'house' so that you may be able to compare the different techniques and tastes.
