Map of the cognac-growing area

In 1938 an official decree set out the six different growing areas or ‘crus‘ in which cognac could be made. This map shows the extent of those areas and their names. The Grande Champagne area, marked in a pinky-red on this map and based around Segonzac, is generally considered to be the most prestigious and to produce the finest cognacs.
