The Very First Cognac House
Le Singulier is a highly aromatic, expressive cognac due to the gentle exuberance of a rare grape – the Folle Blanche.
A single growth: Fine Champagne. Well-known in the Cognac region, producing rich, complex eaux-de-vie. A single distillation method: Wine fine lees: natural. A balance of aromatic expressiveness and finesse.
This cognac is the product of fine eaux-de-vie from the Fine 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.

About the Producer
Founded in 1643, Augier is the very first cognac house. Being a wine merchant before settling his own house, founder Philippe Augier was knowledgeable about wine. Starting from Fine Champagne and Balzac grapes, House Augier progressively expanded its reach to new terroirs and grapes over centuries. The house remained a small boutique cognac house over time, they only produced limited volumes of high-quality products and kept experimenting new ways of making, such as pale cognacs in the 18th century. Augier prohibits any additives to preserve the character and purity of their spirits, no added caramel and no chill-filter.
