Cognac Jean Fillioux "N°1"
The N°1 is the Cognac that best embodies the word "Exception".
It has been resting in the cellars of Juillac-le-Coq for more than half a century in order to develop its formidable aromas. The production is strictly confidential: from 30 to a maximum of 100 bottles per year.
It is a Cognac of high lineage with intense notes of fruits (mandarin, mango, orange blossom), and an exceptional freshness. Turmeric, fresh orange, rosewood and apricot liqueur complete this sumptuous picture.
What the press says:
* In the top 10 world-class eaux de vie to celebrate 2018 - La Revue du Vin de France
* "A dense cognac that surprises with panache. Grand Art." Terre de Vins Magazine.
The “noblesse” of a cognac depends on its source and its age. The most prestigious source is the Grande Champagne 1er Cru of Cognac, and more precisely, the Golden Triangle. This is where the famed Domaine de La Pouyade is located, in Juillac Le Coq, and where the dynasty of Jean Fillioux has its roots since 1880, when Honore Fillioux founded the firm.
The Magician of aromas....
Each year in October, 5th generation owner Christophe Fillioux harvests the Ugni blanc grapes from his 63 acre vineyard, makes the wine and distills it in his classic alembic stills. After carefully selecting barrels from the cooperage, the young distillate is put to rest for 2 years absorbing maximum tannins and color. Then comes the secret: day after day, month after month, year after year, Christophe Fillioux and his father Pascal can be found in their cellars sniffing, breathing, tasting, making notes, re-tasting, blending, moving barrels, and listening to their cognacs growing older and older. It’s like a ballet in wood and darkness where only they can hear the music. And, the results are just sublime. An undeniable proof that Pascal Fillioux well deserves the reputation of “Magician of Aromas” that the region has given him.
