Giboin, bouilleur de cru in Cherves de Cognac (borderies and fins bois)
François Giboin descends form a family that is in to wine-growing and cognac producing since 1830. In 1850 the family Lambert owned 10 hectares. This was one of the few vineyards that did not suffer from the phylloxera crisis at the end of the 19th century. It so happenes that the phylloxera louse did not florish on the somewhat more moist soils in this region. François Giboin is now sixth generation and is in possession of 24 hectares now, part borderies and part fins bois. But Giboin is best known for his borderies cognacs.
They distil without the lees for their young cognacs. For the older qualities they do use the lees.
