Ordonneau cognac

Borderies, France

It all began in 1915 when Samuel Ordonneau bought the Domaine de la Grolette. The property was a hunting reserve consisting of 28 acres of vines and the rest of land and forest. At the time, the forest took up more space than the vines.

In 1929 Jacques, son of Samuel, took over the property, developed it and planted vines. Today it is his grandsons who dynamically run the estate. They have made sure that production is more controlled in environmental terms and that distillation is modernised while still respecting their ancestral traditions.

Presently, the house of Ordonneau Cognac consists of an estate and vineyards located completely in the Borderies terroir of the region, in the village of Cherves Richemont. This small, family producer is housed in a typical Charantais estate known, with vineyards covering 27 hectares. They harvest around 3,000 hectolitres of wine on an annual basis, and every aspect of the production process takes place in and around the family estate.

Special attention is paid to aging with the regular renewal of casks and cuts from different years, in particular by using old stocks left by previous generations.
