Jean Fillioux, a semi artisan producer of cognacs from the very special Golden Triangle of the Grande Champagne region, itself the very best origin for cognacs, is listed in the 10 top trending brands by Drinks International.

It should not be regarded as a magnificent achievement since the rest of the group is mostly the usual suspects, the well known very “commercial “ brands. However, it is proof that small artisan producers are being noticed for their superior quality, by even,  the large mass of non-connoisseurs more attuned to the Big Houses of Cognac.

To celebrate, Jean Fillioux has reserved for Cerbaco a barrel of their 1992 vintage just bottled as a Special Cerbaco Label. Vintage cognacs are as rare as hen’s teeth, even more so from the best part of Grand Champagne, and 1992, freshly bottled, perfectly proves the superiority and individuality of artisan production.

Harvested and distilled in 1992, this Cognac was matured in a French recent loose grain oak cask, in a cool damp cellar.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Fresh and floral on the nose with citrus fruit, syrupy apples and refined orchid tones.

Palate: Round and complex palate with beeswax, ripe plum, candied orange and chocolate.

Finish: Long and lively finish with persistent aromas of baked pastry, light spices, and cherry.


Founded in 1880 by Honoré Fillioux, the company is now run by his great-grandson Pascal J. Fillioux. The vineyards lie in the heart of the Grande Champagne in the 'golden triangle': Verrières, Angeac-Champagne and Juillac-le-Coq. It is well known, this area yields the most delicate and finest Cognacs, and requires long oak barrel ageing to achieve maturity: the ageing is the key. Nothing will be done without Pascal's full control, from wines to labels and from soil to the bottle. It's a one-man-show. The men in the Fillioux dynasty have each borne a great love to their region and their soil. They have, from generation to generation, been blessed with an exceptional 'nose': that one, unique, talent that sets apart those who love greatness and those who are actually able to create it. 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.
