The elaboration of Cognac
The production of cognac goes through several stages: the harvest of the grapes, the vinification of the white wines obtained after a few weeks, the distillation from mid-November to the end of March at the latest, the aging of 5 to 20 years or even much more thanks to the quality of the production of the traditional cooperages, for, finally, the greatest pleasure of the gastronomes.
