DEAU Cognac: a family affair. The story began in 1685 during the reign of King Louis XIV, when Louis Deau became a winegrower in Charente and discovered the mythical alchemy of distillation.

DEAU Cognac

DEAU Cognac, a unique collection. New inspiration in the very select universe of exceptional cognacs. Presented in a decanter with a resolutely modern design that encapsulates the best tasting methods. Our cognacs represent excellence, expertise, and creativity.

THE GRIFFON is the symbolic guardian of nature's treasures. Half-eagle, half-lion, this fantastic creature was first mentioned more than 5000 years ago. Today, the griffon is the noble protector of the family's vineyard and the golden elixir in our cellars.

The estate

The estate is located in the Fins Bois sub-region. This region of AOC cognac is known for the fine quality of its eau-de-vie. The dominant grape variety, Ugni blanc, creates a vibrant and fresh wine that is perfect for producing cognac. The home of DEAU Cognac, Les Moisans is a lovely hamlet crossed by a narrow winding lane. The estate includes the aging cellars, the twelve-still distillery, the offices, and the beautifully restored Manor House for welcoming visitors and cognac aficionados.

La Vie en Or is gilded with the purest of gold leaf, hand laid by Arthus Bertrand, one of Paris finest jewelers, in keeping with the age-old tradition of award-winning guildsmen.

The treasure of our company, L.V.O. is a blend of very old Grande Champagne cognacs aged in the cool stillness of our underground cellar embedded in limestone.
