Ferrand 10 Generations Grande Champagne Cognac
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.
Fresh flavors and aromas, a decadent Cognac.

How to serve the 10 Generations Cognac
Serve with cocktails or for sipping.
A pleasant cognac
This cognac must breathe for a long time. Then aromas of pear and winter spices unfold, later, in the almost empty glass, you clearly notice the note from the oak barrel.
The taste is characterised by orange and other fruits. A pleasant finish.
Explosion of Flavor
Nose - Intense fruit
Taste - This is a 46% Alc/vol cognac , First taste is an explosion of fruity flavorings, slight warming in the beginning ,finish closes with intense fruit flavor. I thought it to be only for special guest.
I'm not an expert, but it has a sweet taste and I add it to recipes.
But I'm really grateful for precious help of experts of Cognac-expert and the quickest delivery!
Pretty smooth and sweet
The nose isn't that great but this cognac is very smooth, very sweet on the palate. The bottle design and packaging is amazing! Be aware it's only half a litre and not 0.7 or 0.75 litre. So it's not as cheap as you may think.. Solid product by Ferrand!
