Rich and luxurious, this 12-year-old “Tres Vielle” Cognac offers deep toffee and hazelnut flavors, before tapering off to a cocoa and espresso-inflected finish. It’s a well-structured brandy that puts you in mind of a leather club chair—you just want to close your eyes and sink into it.
Crafted from 100% "Folle Blanche", a pre-phylloxera grape variety, Jean Grosperrin "La Folle Blanche" Grande Champagne Cognac greets with lively aromas of fruit, citrus, honey and butter on the nose. The medium bodied palate offers a soft texture with notes of baked apple, vanilla, caramel and cinnamon which lead to a long, balanced finish.
$780.001840 is an addition to the Pierre Ferrand cognac range that has a bit of history. Based on the 3 star cognacs much favoured by the pioneering bartenders of the 19th century this has been designed to work perfectly in classic cocktails. It's also a bit punchier than the others in the range, bottled at 45% for a more concentrated flavour that should sing out in a mixed drink.
Pierre Ferrand Selection des Anges is an average of 30 years old. A deep mahogany, this exceptional cognac displays concentrated aromas of vanilla, mocha, black tea, walnut and violet. The full-bodied palate brings yet more complexity with candied citrus, saffron, ginger, honey, clove, licorice and cedar.
