Winegrowers and distillers for more than 150 years – this could very well be a Boutinet family motto. Their vineyards cover 27 hectares of the Cognac-producing area known as Fins Bois, which is renowned for its ability to produce young eaux-de-vie of very high quality. For generations vines have been planted on the best land of the property, with its deep and light soil. The result was well-balanced wines that reflect the care, knowledge and tradition of the winery Bernard Boutinet and his son, Pierre nurtured and sustained.
Although the vineyards have been at le Brissonneau for nearly two hundred years, and the art of distilling has been passed down through four generations, it was only twenty years ago that Bernard Boutinet added a new dimension by producing Cognac and Pineau des Charentes under his own name. For both labels, he chose the image of a carriage to brand the bottle. This choice seemingly echoes the Charentes region – mysterious and secret behind the high walls of the estates, the pride in its rich history – so his labels are plain, discreet, but elegant.
