Distillery Jacques Denis


Monday 10 December 2012

Ths is in Saint Preuil, in the vineyards of Grande Champagne, that Stéphane Denis opened us the doors of the family distillery.

Family wine estates
The Denis manage two wine estates, one in the Grande Champagne vineyards in the village of Saint Preuil, the other in the Petite Champagne vineyards. Part of the wine production is then distilled then delivered as eaux-de-vie to major trading houses. Another part is distilled then stored for the elaboration of cognacs and pineaux des Charentes that are marketed directly by the family.

The distillery has two stills. The particularity of this distillery is to have a single wine pre-heater placed between the two boilers. The cooling tanks are located along the opposite wall. We can pass between the boiler and the cooling tank of each still.

Production
The family Denis elaborates pineaux des Charentes and cognacs of Grande and Petite Champagne. In the cellars and the family paradise are sleeping centenary cognacs.

Where to buy Jacques Denis products
They are marketed at the Cognathèque shop, place Jean Monnet in Cognac.

Distillation

The thermometer at the top of the pot is used to control the temperature in the bioler. The contents of the pot has to evaporate slowly, the flavours are naturally selected in the still-head in the shape of an onion before being swept away by the vapour into the swan-neck then into the coil. The wines should never boil, otherwise the entire contents of the pot could go directly to the cooling coil causing the loss of all the distillate and even the destruction of the boiler by implosion!! Hence, the distiller has to carefully monitor and regulate the temperature throughout the heating process.
