Located 70 miles north of the Bordeaux region, between the Atlantic coast and the Massif Central, the region of Cognac is influenced by both oceanic and continental climates. The region was delimited by law in 1909, with its six subdivisions defined in 1938: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois and Bois Ordinaires. The finest crus of the region are the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne, known for their chalky soil — home to Cognac Lhéraud.
Cognac Lhéraud’s vines are planted to Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Colombard; the last two varieties were grown more prevalently in the past, but became susceptible to different vine diseases and, over time, were replaced by Ugni Blanc. Today, Cognac Lhéraud is one of the few distilleries that produces cognacs using a blend of all three varieties.
