Bertrand, Domaine des Brissons de Laage, bouilleur de cru in Réaux (Petite Champagne)
(not to be confused with Bertrand in Chevanceaux, bons bois)
The Bertrand family is tilling their lands as a winegrower already since 1731. They own about 75 hectares in the petite champagne area, which they planted almost completely with the ugni blanc variety (just a little bit of colombard at the side). For many years they have produced their cognacs with the ‘Domaine des Brissons de Laage’ label, but for some years now they are using their own family name: Bertrand. So do not confuse the with the other Bertrand in Chevanceaux (Bertrand Vignobles) who produces fins bois and bons bois cognacs.
The Bertrand cognacs are known for their very dark colour, obtained by very long ageing.
Gamma: VS, VSOP, Napoléon, XO and Vieille Réserve.
