A few definitions of

the Part des Anges

Historical
It is in the 18th century that Segonzac’s parish priest realised the
lowering of the level of the brandy it its cask. As it was kept in a
cellar beneath the church, he attributed this phenomenon to the
deed of angels… which is at the origin of the name Part des Anges.

Scientific

Is called Part des Anges the evaporation from the aging of a brandy
in a cask resulting from an alchemy which determines the maturing
of the liquid within.

Technical

To express all of its qualities, brandy needs to age for many years in
oak casks. While aging, the cognac evaporates by about 2% of its
volume per year, which is equivalent to about twenty million bottles:
a heavy price which the producers happily pay to ensure that
elaborating rhymes with perfecting.

Poétique

The Part des Anges, as Jacno said, is “the part of the non negotiable
sacrifice that the distiller needs to let evaporate to obtain an
incomparable nectar.”

The secret ?
Expertise in each of the categories to search only for the exceptional.
Determined exploration of all regions.
Uncompromising selection.
For each product, whether rational or intuitive, human factors lead to

Part des Anges:


passion, the trusting nature of men
Part des Anges was created in 2006 out of Laurent Buob and Thierry
Richard’s passion for champagnes and spirits.
These two experts have a common interest for the human adventure
and the desire to understand the essence and the uniqueness of
products.

Their objective? To reveal exceptional products which make unfor-


gettable each moment of tasting.
Thanks to a solid experience within the universe of wines and spirits,
these two professionals now enjoy the close collaboration of an expert
committee which guarantees the whole of their selection for each
category of products.

Thus, each champagne, whisky or cognac selected by Part des Anges tends to be the most faithful translation of
its creator’s credo, of its know-how and of the thorough attention given to its vintage and its vineyard.

Part des Anges: a collection of styles


Because they have understood the stakes in revealing their creation to ensure its timelessness, the selected
producers have entrusted Part des Anges with the very best of their works.
By focusing on the three categories that they know best i.e. champagnes, whiskies and cognacs, the founders of
Part des Anges have created the collections “Exclusive Vintage”, “Closed Distilleries” and “Masters (S)election”.

“Closed Distilleries”: Scotland’s memory-bearers whiskies


About 80 distilleries have shut down or have been destroyed since the beginning of the 20th century,
out of which thirty of them were producing well-known whiskies.
Thierry and Laurent taste hundreds of casks and select those which best reveal the generosity and the
character most closely linked to the spirit of Part des Anges’ distillery.
So as to respect the spirit of each distillery and to recover their original aromas, these whiskies,
stemmed from single casks, are presented cask strength. Each cask contributes to only a few hundred
bottles.
With its “Closed Distillery” collection, Part des Anges is thus able to offer exceptional, unique and
generous whiskies : a mouthful of Scotland’s history.

“Exclusive Vintage“, the grand vintage wines from Champagne


With its “Exclusive Vintage” collection, Part des Anges allows for the discovery of the grand Champagne
wines which unusual characteristics are further enhanced as they are allowed to age.
These vintages are the exact reflection of its producer’s spirit, of its know-how both in the selection of
the best grapes and the complex art of wine-making.

“Masters (S)election”: aged eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne region


Part des Anges has selected a few cask strength eaux-de-vie from anonymous casks which make the
composition of the grand cognacs truly exceptional
These eaux-de-vie have been awarded First Prize at Segonzac, yearly supreme reward which only the
best amongst these independent producers can hope to win.
The Masters (S)election offers to the enthusiasts these prize-winning casks, exceptional eaux-de-vie,
carefully kept like a family treasure.

Part des Anges: a new reference for the enthusiasts


By only revealing champagnes, whiskies and cognacs which are the most accomplished works of their producers,
Part des Anges offers to the enthusiasts unique and rare emotions.
These unforgettable experiences set Part des Anges as a new reference within the world of champagnes and
spirits.

The result of their search was the uncovering a


few brut eaux-de-vie in anonymous casks which
make the composition of the grand cognacs truly
exceptional.

Anges has selected these eaux-de-vie’s casks. They
have all been awarded First Prize at Segonzac, the
most prestigious competition rewarding the best
