What people are saying about Poitou-Charentes
Excellent education on the world of Cognac!
This was a great overview on everything about Cognac, taught by a knowledgeable connoisseur and college educator. It covered every aspect of the making of Cognac from weather and soils, grape varieties, wine making, distillation, aging, and blending. I learned a LOT in just one day. Our guide (Jean Luc) explained every aspect of the process and patiently answered our questions. We toured the general area as well as the town itself with stops at Remi Martin and a small craft distiller. It was both fun and informative. Oh, and lunch was great too! If you are interested in Cognac, I highly recommend this.
A fantastic few hours and we all learnt so much. Very well explained by Jean-Luc and his lovely wife Christine greeted us at the start and made us feel right at home. We would definitely recommend the Master Class Tasting, even if like us you know little about Cognac. We will be looking in the future to the Cognac Tasting Tour.
Excellent masterclass, thoroughly enjoyed learning the history behind the production of Cognac from Jean-Luc who was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his subject. I have never been a Cognac drinker but now I am converted! Would highly recommend this course.
