A Grande Champagne Cognac from Pierre Ferrand, honouring the ten generations of Ferrand family members behind the great Cognac house. This expression has been crafted exclusively using eaux-de-vie made of Ugni-Blanc grapes, and 20% of the spirit was matured in casks that previously held deliciously sweet Sauternes wine.
Eye: Golden honey.
Nose: Honey, apricot, coconut, caramel, fruit cake and raisins. Then develops into nose of rose, orange blossom, nutmeg and ginger.
Palate: Expect notes of dried fruits such as baked pear, muscat grape and pineapple soaked in Sauternes, gently toasted nuts, wildflowers and spring blossom. Finish is long and fresh with minty notes, then fresh tobacco.
