Dreaming of the Roaring Twenties “Années Folles”, we created “Miss Chic”.
Miss Chic, it is this refined silhouette, dressed up by the most famous designers, emblem of an iconic fashion and embodying the modern and seductive woman.
Referring to the atmosphere of the cabarets back then, this cuvee perpetuates this festive and spontaneous impulse.

Cognac is an eau-de-vie (literally, «water of life») aged in oak casks for decades. Cognacs mature in 3 different cellars; firstly the young «Eaux-de-vie» remain in young barrels and are then transferred into wooden barrels so as to complete their ageing in a cellar with a higher humidity level and in fine oak barrels rendering elegance and finesse. XO are between 20 and 40 years old, VSOP between 10 to 15 years and VS between 5 – 10 years.

The word ‘Charentais’ gathers the ‘terroirs’ of both French departments Charente and Charente-Maritime.
The ‘terroir’, meaning “all the natural factors (climate, soil, subsoil, rainfall) and human factors (know-how and agricultural traditions) of both viticulture and wine-making”, is surrounded by the Charente River and the Atlantic Ocean.
The vineyard is an integral of the Charentes, its rows of vines highlight the landscape’s curves. The IGP Charentais offer huge diversity thanks to these varied types of landscapes and their soils.
Wine production in the Charentes region is much older than the production of Cognac that has made the region famous.
