Region Info/ Origin
The region authorised to produce cognac is divided into six zones, including fivecrus broadly covering the department of Charente-Maritime, a large part of the department of Charente and a few areas in Deux-Sèvres and the Dordogne. The six zones are: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois,Bon Bois and finally Bois Ordinaire. A blend of Grande and Petite Champagne Cognacs, with at least half coming from Grande Champagne, is known as Fine Champagne. Cognac-producing regions should not be confused with the northeastern region of Champagne, a wine region that producessparkling wine by that name, although they do share a common etymology – both being derivations of a French term for chalky soil.
