About
Le Château de Cognac a la particularité d’être un Monument Historique : ancienne résidence royale, lieu de naissance de François 1er, elle est aujourd’hui la Maison des Cognacs BARON OTARD et D’USSÉ. Véritable témoignage de l’Histoire de France, le Château constitue un lieu de visite incontournable. Parcourez les vestiges du Passé, du Moyen Age à aujourd’hui. Découvrez les conditions naturelles de vieillissement si particulières du Château, et dégustez les différents cognacs au cœur des chais secs et des chais humides (voutes basses). Accompagné de votre ambassadeur, sur les pas du Maître de Chai, explorez les salles renaissances, mais aussi les appartements du Roi habituellement fermés au public, tout en dégustant* 3 qualités de Cognacs : les VSOP, XO Gold et EXTRA BARON OTARD qui seront directement extraits sous vos yeux ! *Réservée aux personnes majeures uniquement.

    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    The Château of Cognac has the distinction of being a Historic Monument: a former royal residence, the birthplace of François I, and it is now the home of BARON OTARD and D’USSÉ Cognacs. A true testimony to the history of France, the Château is a must-see. Explore the vestiges of the past, from the Middle Ages to the present day. Discover the Château’s unique natural ageing conditions and taste the different cognacs in the dry and wet cellars (low vaults). Different qualities of VSOP, XO and EXTRA BARON OTARD cognacs will be extracted directly before your eyes*! Accompanied by your ambassador, follow in the footsteps of the Cellar Master and explore the renaissance rooms and the King’s apartments, which are usually closed to the public.
