KNOW-HOW

Claude Chatelier

THE STORY

The name Chatelier is a tribute to the most distant origins of Cognac. The first eaux-de-vie of Cognac were created on the west coast of its vineyards, and historically it was local monks who developed the art of distillation.
In 1166, in the heart of the island called the Île de Ré, one of the oldest Cistercian abbeys was founded. Its name: l’Abbaye des Chateliers. This unique place was, for a long time, the epicenter of distillation of wines from the region by these learned monks… and thus Alexandre Gabriel created Claude Chatelier Cognac in 1989.

THE COGNACS

Claude Chatelier Cognacis is made using grape wines from top-quality vineyards in the best Cognac Crus. It is distilled in small copper potstills of 25 hectoliters according to age-old, traditional in-house methods.
The cognac ages slowly in small French oak barrels in cool, damp cellars with beaten earth floors that promote its subtle transformation. The cellar master’s time-honored art of blending then imparts this cognac its superb balance.
