Try to get to some of the lesser known houses. We made the most fantastic discovery some years ago at Maison Guerbé in Juillac-le-coq - beautiful Cognac Grand Champagne and a warm welcome from Jean Guerbé himself. We just happened on it by chance, driving down a beautiful country road. I believe his son now runs the domaine. Well worth the detour - only a short (designated driver) ride from Cognac centre ville!

We did that once with some friends and became Cognac fans. I had never even thought of buying the stuff before.

It was a fabulous way to spend Thanksgiving!

David
Thanks for the recommendation.
I'll keep the name and we'll visit the next time we go.
We always taste at the smaller producers and found one called Thorin that was fantastic.

Betty
I'm not a huge lover of Cognac but my husband is. It is a beautiful area to visit.

We are never full
You wouldn't have been jealous of our long drive home in heavy, unpredicted snow! :)
