White liquor wine Vignobles Philbert, Pineau des Charentes "Vieux" is not a wine in the traditional sense of the word, since grape juice does not ferment during its production. This type of product belongs to a special category of alcoholic drinks - mistels. "Pinot de Charentes" is created in October-early November, during the collection of very ripe grapes varieties from which brandy is usually made - Uni Blanc and Colombard. The grape must is mixed with cognac in a ratio of 2: 1 and sent to oak barrels for long-term aging, which in some cases can exceed 10 years. This mistel ripened in oak barrels for 5 years.
Cognac philbert - atypical cognac House, familiar to perception. It is based on fearlessness, relentless progress and innovation. The founders are two young brothers, Pierre-Olivier and Xavier, who decided to challenge the traditions and undermine the cognac archetype from the inside, which has been kept unchanged for centuries. The decision to go against the mainstream did not appear immediately. In 2006, the brothers inherited vineyards and a family estate, and set about expanding vineyards. By 2012, the vineyard area tripled. Having provided the material side of the production process, the brothers, in search of a selling concept, turned to the ideological, that is, to marketing.
The main principle of the industry: distinguish yourself. The cognac market is filled with traditional brands, the prospect of becoming the next and boring brothers did not appeal. So Philbert appeared - a young, modern, dynamic, tearing template. The brothers were the first in the Cognac province to additionally age their cognacs in barrels of sherry or sauternes. They revised the design of the bottle: lightened and simplified the style, added fresh notes and eclecticism. A bottle of high-quality Filber cognac, made according to classical technology, can be found on the beach, skateboard, cinema, museum or even on the ski run. Established traditions, style, rules of presentation can be reviewed, only one thing remains uncompromising - quality.
