Cellars and still more cellars; the technical visits can be tiring; few towns have seen their name become as well-known as that of Cognac. Its great Houses (Hennessy, Rémy Martin, Martell) are known everywhere. However the town knows how to keep up the suspense since it also hosts the International Festival of the Detective Film!
