Exciting course in French / English about the cultivation area and the origin of cognac. Personal care in a beautiful area. Excellent specialist knowledge of the speaker. Entertaining explanations rounded off by a fine tasting at the end of the master's class. I can fully recommend the course at any time! Merci, Monsieur, nous avons vraiment apprecie vous connaissaneces et votre aimabilite!

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.
