We discovered that the origin of the Mauxion family brings us back to 1575 when Pierre Mauxion was bon in a village called “ Houlette” where the family still lives.
This represents 13 generations of Mauxion.
Back in 1743 Antoine MAUXION was the first of the family to produce on its own vineyard an Eaux de vie which comes from the Cognac region. At that time he 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 these step create a nectar “EAUX de VIE” which after slowly ageind for many years in French oak barrel will give birth to the Cognac.
MAUXION Selection offers you the opportunity 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”.

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.
