.. An unique eau-de-vie
In our region of Charente, vines grow in clay-limestone soils favouring the production of grapes that are well suited to ageing. This led to the creation of geographical boundaries of six “crus”, or production districts, within the controlled appellation area of Cognac, which was established in 1909.

Carte des Crus de Cognac
Respect for the land
High Environmental Value & Agrobiological Approach
The Estate’s vineyards are cultivated with a constant concern for the respect of the land and that of the natural ecosystem and water resources. This was put into effect by implementing sustainable agricultural practices starting in the early 2000s. Then Patrick made the choice of committing his viticultural holdings to an HVE farming approach (“Haute Valeur Environmentale” or High Environmental Value) following the adoption of the Grenelle Environment Roundtable. His efforts and his dedication to protect the environment were rewarded by a HVE Level 3 certification for the estate in January 2018.

Cognacs & Pineaux
Grande & Petite Champagne
The Drouet estate is located 12 kms south of the town of Cognac. Its 40 hectares are spread across the first two most prestigious “premier crus”: 70% in Grande Champagne, and 30% in Petite Champagne, the second “premier cru” of the appellation.

The Drouet family proposes a range of purist Cognacs Grande Champagne, cognacs that are elegant and highlight this unique terroir. In 2017, another range was launched, one of Craft cognacs, highly original in character stemming from either “premier cru” or the second “deuxieme cru” vineyards, produced in small batches and numbered.
