Among the very best of the small "grower-producers" of Cognac, is Pascal Fillioux proprietor of the small firm, Jean Fillioux. Pascal is the fourth generation of Fillioux to carry the tradition since the firms founding in 1880. Pascal’s vineyards lie in the very heart of the Grande Champagne district. Pascal personally oversees, (if not performs) every aspect of production: harvest, fermentation, distillation, aging, blending and bottling. Pascal is rather self-effacing and modest and he will be the first to tell you that though he has years of experience making Cognac, he still learns everyday and a lifetime is simply not enough.
