Cognac Wall Map

To know and love the wine spirit (eau-de-vie) brandy is to know and love Cognac! Centered on the town of Cognac, north of the Bordeaux wine region, lies the heartland and appellation of origin of Cognac. Starting as a white wine, Cognac’s grapes are cultivated across a terroir that sustains six distinct “cru” cultivation areas. The most important cultivation area – Cognac Grande Champagne – is centered in the hills south of the Charente River. This map depicts the overarching Cognac appellation of origin, the six “cru” cultivation areas, Cognac’s principal varieties, and definitions for Cognac’s ageing categories (e.g. VS, VSOP, XO, XXO).
