Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
Pierre Ferrand 1975 Collection Privé Cognac is an award-winning vintage eaux-de-vie that has its roots in the year 1975 and comes from the best terroir of the Cognac region; Grande Champagne. The year 1975 was one that showed four distinct seasons. A remarkably mild winter led to a pleasantly cool spring followed by a hot and sunny summer that gave the grapes the necessary maturity to produce this aromatic and well-balanced Cognac.
Long maturation, mostly in humid cellars, has enhanced the richness of this unique vintage. Meanwhile, the nose reveals an elegant, perfectly balanced vintage eau-de-vie with initial hints of fruit that gradually evolve towards rancio notes. On the palate, notes of exotic wood move towards spice flavors and retain a great deal of freshness.
The 1975 Collection Privé is very representative of this vintage year and epitomises a great rich and beautifully bold eaux-de-vie that is sure to be enjoyed by not only Cognac connoisseurs but those who are new to the brand and the world of Cognac too.
The house of Pierre Ferrand is located in the heart of the golden triangle of Grande Champagne Premier Cru de Cognac, in Segonzac. Therefore, preserving and expanding upon the savoir-faire inherited from ten successive generations is now well and truly embedded within the brands values. Meanwhile, the brand is driven to continue tradition meanwhile keeping the family’s prestigious reputation alive.
