The Chateau de Plassac, located in the Cognac region, has been owned by the Dampierre family for the last 250 years spanning eight generations. It is a beautiful domain of 200 hectares surrounded by a 4.5 km long ancient wall dedicated to the production of one of the most exclusive Cognacs in the world.
The beautiful Chateau de Plassac is the jewel of the Cognac region. Its architect, Victor Louis, who also designed the plans for the Palais Royal in Paris and the great theatre in Bordeaux, considered Plassac to be one of the most beautiful 18th century property in the area.
