Founded in 1880 by Honoré Fillioux, the company is now run by his great-grandson Pascal J. Fillioux. The vineyards lie in the heart of the Grande Champagne in the 'golden triangle': Verrières, Angeac-Champagne and Juillac-le-Coq. It is well known, this area yields the most delicate and finest Cognacs, and requires long oak barrel ageing to achieve maturity: the ageing is the key. Nothing will be done without Pascal's full control, from wines to labels and from soil to the bottle. It's a one-man-show. The men in the Fillioux dynasty have each borne a great love to their region and their soil. They have, from generation to generation, been blessed with an exceptional 'nose': that one, unique, talent that sets apart those who love greatness and those who are actually able to create it. The House of Jean Fillioux belongs to a select group of traditional family estates who have successfully defended their upper-quality niche over several decades by producing consistently authentic Cognacs that rest on century-old traditions, patience and love to become the masterpieces true connoisseurs appreciate.
