From generation to generation, from past to present, the Fillioux men have been blessed with an exceptional "nose"
At La Pouyade, the dynasty of Jean Fillioux has its roots. Five generations have accepted, year after year, the subtle duties dictated by tradition.
The House of Jean Fillioux belongs to a select group of traditional family estates who have successfully defended their upper quality niche over several decades by producing consistently authentic Cognacs that rest on century-old traditions, patience and love to become the masterpieces true connoisseurs appreciate.
Cask No.88 was bottled in February 2021 on which date Christophe J. Fillioux, the cellar master, made the following tasting notes:
This Grande Champagne Cognac was harvested and distilled a long time ago, it was matured in a cool damp cellar, in a loose grain, medium toasted new French oak cask.
The nose is full of fresh fruits like pear and sweet grapes, combined with almonds and orange blossom.
On the palate, it feels richer than one would expect from nosing, there are aromas of ripe plum, fruit cake, figs and a hint of cherry.
Refined finish with pepper, herbal tea, and light tobacco/leather notes.
