MAUXION SELECTION

Cognac, a family heritage for 13 generations ...

ORIGINS


We discovered that the origin of the Mauxion family brings us back in 1575 when Pierre Mauxion was bon in this village called “ Houlette” where the family is still living. This represents 13 generation of Mauxion.

Back in 1743 Antoine MAUXION was the first of the family to produce on its own vineyard an Eaux de vie which come from the Cognac region. At that time he already had to pay a tax of “75 Livres” as a wine distiller.

During 10 Generations we perpetuated the same tradition of growing the vineyard (respecting the seasons from the pruning to the harvest), vinifying the wine, in order to distill it in the copper pot still. All this steps will create a nectar “EAUX de VIE” which after slowly aged many years in French oak barrel will give birth to the Cognac.

MAUXION Selection offers you to discover some cognac treasures coming from single cru (From Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois) in cask strength and without any blend. After a long maturation these cognacs acquired the noblest aromas for your own pleasure. Discover and experience a privileged moment while tasting these unique cognac witness of the last century and keep at home a piece of this “Paradise”.

Thus, in taste, aroma, freshness and smoothness on the palate, Cognac Mauxion represents the unique Cognac embodiment of the four legislated Crus of Cognac production in France in their fineness

Originality

THE FINESS OF THE FOUR LEGISTED CRUS

Cognac Mauxion Selection is a unique blend of historic and exquisite Cognac from four of the 6 legally designated and protected Cognac defined areas called Appellations in France since 1909: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, and Fins Bois.

Each district was set aside as legislated grapes growers and Cognac wine producers.
Their selection was based on their unique soil qualities, temperature, aroma and ideal tastes of their Cognac.

Grande & Petite Champagne

In the case of Grande and Petite Champagne the soils characteristically do not lack water as the sub-soil acts as a giant sponge through which water rises slowly as the dryness of the summer increases.
Grande Champagne maintains its uniqueness in producing the best of Cognac arriving at full maturity after long ageing (up to 80 years ageing) in protected and selective oak casks. Petite Champagne maintains its fine cognac production with exceptional quality.

Borderies & Fins Bois

In addition, the clay and flint stone qualities of the soil because of the decomposition of limestone in the Borderies have naturally produced high quality Cognacs famous for its smoothness and lovely aroma of violet.

Similarly, the Fins Bois Appellation, have historically produced tasteful smooth Cognac with the distinct aroma of freshly pressed grapes.
