A cognac only very seldom improves further until this venerable age. He is one of these rare cognacs. The unique refinement and complexity is comparable with large years of old wines.
Today, Cognac Ferrand is one of the very few cognac houses, which specializes in old cognacs from Grande champagne.
The grapes are vinified into a light, fruity and acidic wine at Ferrand. This wine, which remains unfiltered after fermentation in order to impart as much fruitiness as possible, is distilled on the lees - an old, uncommon method in Cognac today.
This process gives the cognac the subtle aromas of fruits and flowers that can be found in great wines but rarely in a cognac.
