PIERRE FERRAND 10 GENERATIONS COGNAC 1ER CRU
Since 1630, in the heart of the vineyards of Cognac, 10 generations of Ferrands have passed down an abiding knowledge of the vine and of distillation. This Premier Cru de Cognac is a tribute to these men of character, for whom a great cognac was above all the fruit of patient work on a great terroir.
Living in the venerable mansion of her ancestors, Mademoiselle Henriette, the last direct descendant of this prestigious lineage, was, during her lifetime, the guardian of this precious memory. She chose to entrust it to us, and she is the inspiration for this superb blend. We named it “10 Générations.”
Grande Champagne Cognac, 10 Générations is only made with Ugni-Blanc grapes. Distilled slowly on fine lees, it is aged in French oak with 20% in Sauternes casks. With freshness, it is an opulent Cognac.
“Interesting confectioner’s sugar notes evoking red licorice, sweet vanilla, and tobacco leaf. The sweet palate shows lemon oil, nutmeg, cinnamon, and other notes from the wood. It finishes nice and sweet, making this a good option for a sidecar.” 93 Points 2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge
