Our History

Baron de Beauchesne is the elder son of an old french family whose origins go back to the times of Royal Cavalrymen, Knights, Lords, Counts, Viscounts and Barons, the times of the Capetian dynasty and Bouchard III, Lord of Montmorency (991-1040).

In 1793, during the French revolution, the ancestor of the Baron of Beauchesne, great lover of Cognac “eau-de-vie” selected his best spirits and offered them to Napoleon Bonaparte and his military staff during hunting with hounds.

At that moment, a genuine world-renowned passion was born between the Emperor and this beverage.

In 1976, upon discovering several bottles in an old cellar, Baron of Beauchesne decided to restart the production of this exceptional Cognac.

The journey starts…

A new capital
of international renown

Harvested in the highest quality vineyards, transported by boats to the countries of Northern Europe, the wines of Poitou, Charente and the Angoulême region have been, since the 13th century, the delight of the English, the Dutch and the Scandinavians.

Since the 17th century, these wines have been transformed into brandy, then improved in oak barrels to eventually become cognac. Thus began the story of the city of Cognac which became the world famous capital of this beverage.

What you should know

Let‘s go behind the scenes.
Before introducing our exceptional products,
let us take you to the places where the noble substance is born.

Geographic Location

One region, 6 terroirs each with different soil characteristics.

La Grande-Champagne

13.766 ha of vineyards

Located in the heart of the cognac area, the Grande-Champagne is the most prestigious terroir of cognac. It is located on a particular soil, the Campanian, where many fossils can be found.

Nowhere else in the world are eaux-de-vie produced as complex and unique and with such longevity as those born on the ridge south of Segonzac, the “capital of Grande-Champagne”.

The climatic conditions in Grande-Champagne are the most favorable, sheltered from the vicissitudes of an oceanic climate in the West and continental in the East.

La Grande Champagne eau-de-vie is distinguished by its predominantly floral aroma, reminiscent of vine flowers, dried vine shoots or dried lime blossom. Its bouquet is remarkable. After reduction, the aromas develop and a fruity smell replaces the floral smell.
