Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
The Pierre Ferrand Reserve Cognac is a delightful XO Cognac made solely from eaux-de-vie from the premier cru of the region, Grande Champagne. This is an excellent Cognac that's deservedly been decorated with medals and accolades over the years. However, it has now been discontinued by the house (replaced by the Pierre Ferrand Reserve Double Cask), so bottles of this certainly won't be available to purchase at some point in the future.
Awards & Accolades:
2009 Chicage Beverage Testing Institute - 94 points - Gold Medal
Paul Pacult from The Spirits Journal - "One of the more multilayered finishes in the Cognac industry"
About Pierre Ferrand Cognac
The estate of Cognac Pierre Ferrand is located directly in the ‘golden triangle’ of the Grande Champagne region of Cognac and is owned and run by Alexandre Gabriel. Specializing in old and very old cognacs, Pierre Ferrand is only bottled and shipped to order. They have also developed some unique production techniques of their own that are used in the aging and distillation process and have introduced innovative ways of collaborating with smaller scale producers. Both the vineyards and company headquarters are located in the 18th century Château de Bonbonnet at Ars, just 10 kms from the town center of Cognac itself.
