Cognac exportations hit a new record for the last campaign, with an increase of 8,2 % in volume and 5,4 % in value. The selected reference period is from August 1st to July 31st of the following year.
After a year of hard work, hoping that the weather conditions would be nice enough till the cognac harvest time, the single most important decision of the winegrower is to choose the right day to begin harvest. It looks like a very subtle balance betweeen professionnal skills and intuition, and requires a fair amount of experience. Needless to say that it’s a nerve-wracking period, especially when the weather has played unkind tricks like this year in cognac vineyards.
