Dupuy, brand owned by Bache-Gabrielsen, formerly a cognac firm in Cognac
(Not to be confused with Guy Dupuy, cognac producer in Ambleville)
- 1852 Auguste Dupuy estiblishes the company
- 1895 His nephew Edmond Dupuy succeeds Auguste.
- 1905 The firm is bought by two Norwegians, Peter Rustad and Bache-Gabrielsen. After the decease of Rustad, the Bache-Gabrielsen family acquired the exclusive rights.
The name Dupuy has been preserved as a brand name.
To make Dupuy cognac the Bache-Gabrielsen company buys young cognacs from other producers and distilleries, about 30% is Grande champagne, 20% Petite champagne, 40% Fins bois and 10% Bons bois. They also use some cognac made of Colombard grapes. The aging of the cognacs is done at their own warehouses and of course they also make the blends themselves.
Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen is the present managing director, assisted by Philippe Bergier.
Dupuy comes in a ‘Classics’ line and a ‘Tentations’ line, but the difference between the two is not explained. All cognac are blends except for the Hors d’Age.
The Classics range: VS, VSOP, Napoléon, XO and Hors d’Age (Grande champagne). There is also a milléssime 1971 that is part of the Classics line.
Tentations (blends): VS, VSOP, XO.
