La Maison Plantevigne-Dubosquet, located not far from Saintes in the heart of this deep Saintonge, a Roman city with limestone soils where the Romans planted their first vines in Gaulle at the very beginning of our era. It could have become the capital of cognac, but Saintes, with its arenas and its Arc de Triomphe from Roman times, had to fade in favor of its rival Cognac which later gave its name at the end of the 19th century to the most famous of the eaux-de-vie of France.
The Maison-Plantevigne-Dubosquet is now run by a 14th generation of this very old family from the Cognac region, whose roots, according to the French national archives, go back to 1640.
This House produces Cognacs Grande Champagne exclusively, classified Premier Cru and at the top of the qualitative hierarchy of Cognacs.
