Discover Cognac Bertrand
The history of Cognac Bertrand dates back to 1731 and the Bertrand family has been runing the estate for generations. The vineyard is spread out on an area of 82 hectares throughout the region Cognac.
Winemaking at Cognac Bertrand
The terroir of Cognac Bertrand, with abundant limestone, regulates water, and protects the vines from drought. They mostly grow Ugni Blanc, the traditonal grape variety for Cognac, along with Colombard, Merlot and Cabernet. The high limestone content ensures a limited production from the vines but of superior quality. After the alcoholic fermentation, the white wine is distilled twice in a copper still to make a brandy. They perform a two-stage process to obtain a brandy at 70% alcohol with rich aromas and a fine palate. The Cognac is then matured in oak barrels and kept in the cellar for many years before release. At Cognac Bertand, the winemakers only use traditional methods of production.
