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.
Our family history is rooted in the land and its vines, beginning with the acquisition of the Moisans estate.
To make characterful cognacs faithful to our family tradition, we believe that the terroir is important, the vineyard is essential, and the care given to our wines is absolutely crucial.
In the 1960s, the founder Roland Bru created the Distillerie des Moisans and bought his first vines.
He followed in the footsteps of his father-in-law, Georges Guimard who was from a large family in Angoulême.
Like Bru in his time, Guimard traveled the world after the First World War as a representative of the great cognac houses. Today, the company is overseen by the founder’s daughter Véronique Legaret and her son Roland, with Oliver Petit at their side.
For us, cognac is a family affair. We are proud to share our world, where the exceptional, beautiful, and unique come together to give rise to deep emotion, revelation, and discovery.
The estate encompasses 60 hectares, including 30 hectares in the Fins Bois sub-region. This region of AOC cognac is known for producing fine quality eau-de-vie used to create delicate and supple cognacs. Ugni blanc is the main grape variety. This late maturing grape is harvested at the end of the summer and produces an extremely delicate, dry, pale-yellow wine.
Our wines are double distilled in our large distillery with twelve copper stills. Distillation is a continuous, round-the-clock process. The two distilling processes take place one after the other. Only the fragrant heart of the second distillation (called "la bonne chauffe) is used to make cognac. All parts of the stills that are in contact with the liquid are made of copper, acting as a catalyst in the development of cognac.
Our aging cellars are semi-underground or built into the side of a hill. Inside are more than 1,300 casks containing 350 liters of our precious eau-de-vie, as well as around fifty Limousin oak barrels of 350 to 520 hectoliters each.
Our Cellar Master Christophe Gauville plays with different methods of distillation and maturation, blending several eaux-de-vie to create well-balanced compositions that become the identity, signature, and crown jewels of the Cognac MOISANS brand.
Cognac is known around the world and contributes to the renown of France's flagship products. Our brands play a role of ambassador and increase the reputation of the industry.
