Established in 1643 by a wine merchant, Augier is the oldest, of the cognac houses.
Its history is that of a pioneering House that, has brought to light the wealth of the Cognac region’s terroirs and grapes, at a time when the region was discovering the potential of its eaux-de-vie. Keen to safeguard this heritage, we have rededicated Maison Augier to its original calling.
Augier - Cognac Portfolio
A cognac displaying a maritime influence and mineral character. The body has a straightforward purity overlaying an appealing minerality. A floral, spiced bouquet bears traces of mild tobacco.
This cognac is the product of fine eaux-de-vie from the Bois Ordinaires growth on the Island of Oléron. The blend has a lemon-yellow shade. At first, the nose displays maritime influences enhanced by subtle notes of mature citrus fruit, such as ripe lemon. On swirling, mineral and marine notes can be detected.
The attack is brisk and direct with aromas of pink-grapefruit peel. A clearly defined mid palate is followed by a highly floral finish reminiscent of lemon-tree flowers. The final impression is of delicate spices and a hint of mild tobacco.
This is a cognac with citrus notes that comes from the terroirs of the Bois Ordinaires on the Island of Oléron.
This cognac is the product of fine eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne growth and the highly distinctive Folle Blanche grape.
The blend has an attractive copper-yellow shade. The nose is, at first, subtle and precise. On swirling, fruit notes of pear, bush peach and apricot become apparent. After a brisk, direct attack typical of a spirit free from additives, the body is rounded and subtle on the palate. Intense fruit flavours are balanced by the understated wood aromas in the finish.
This is a characterful cognac made from the forgotten Folle Blanche grape, which accounts for less than 1% of the appellation’s current plantings.
This cognac is the result of blending fine eaux-de-vie from the Petite Champagne growth. It has an attractive golden shade. The nose is at first powerful, a consequence of the spirit being distilled with its lees, and well structured. The attack is brisk and direct on the palate and the body displays complexity with fruit notes of candied apricot.
The cognac comes from eaux-de-vie with intense aromas; the long, lightly-spiced finish has vanilla, cinnamon and clove notes.
This distinctive, structured and powerful cognac owes its character to the high proportion of fine wine lees included during distillation.
