Quintard frères, bouilleurs de Cru in Chadenac (petite champagne)

Fourth generation of cognac farmers. Bastien Quintard joined the company in 2001 and his brother Thomas a few years later. They own 30 hectares of vineyards, most of which are planted with Ugni blanc. Since the takeover by the brothers, an alembic has been added and they distill themselves. Previously, distillation was outsourced. Most of the proceeds still go to the big cognac houses, but some is also saved for their own cognacs (and pineau).

The name Du Frolet is the name of their parents (Frolet; then they just put ‘du’ in front of it to make it a brand name.’

Range (petite champagne): VS, VSOP, XO.
