Pierre Ferrand Grande Champagne Cognac 10 Generations
A fitting tribute to each generation and savoir-faire of this Cognac house, the Pierre Ferrand 10 Generations Cognac is a premium blend from the Premier Cru, the Grande Champagne. Arriving in an intricate traditional decanter illustrated with their family tree, it is a wonderful collector’s edition. Each of the ten generations of Cognac masters have added a unique twist to the knowledge of the vine and distillation; transposing their own character and graft into the precious nectar.
Created using Ugni Blanc grapes grown in the Grande Champagne, its finesse comes as no surprise. The optimal maritime climate combined with chalky soil and limestone means that the light, floral nature of eaux-de-vie is highly desirable in a Cognac.
Distilled slowly on the lees, the eaux-de-vie are aged in French oak casks, with 20% of the spirit in Sauternes barrels. Mademoiselle Henriette was the last direct descendant of such precious lineage, and she was indeed the guardian of its heritage. She is the inspiration for this fine 10 Generations blend.
