Ferrand Selection des Anges Grande Champagne Cognac
The Maison Ferrand has made a name for itself thanks to its exclusive use of Premier Cru terroir eaux-de-vie, the chalky soil of Grande Champagne is particularly famous for producing some of the highest quality Cognacs the region has to offer.
Of course, when they talk about Angels in the spirits world, this is a reference to the ancient term "the Angels share", the spirit taken during the long maturation process as it slowly evaporates over time. As the Angels take their share, flavors are refined and intensified, creating a sublime sensory experience with a higher concentration of aromas the longer the it ages.
This particular selection by Maison Ferrand has an average age of 30 years, meaning the Angels have had their fair share and what's left is a true treat for the senses that will please the palate of even the most discerning Cognac connoisseur. Aromas of baking spice and spring flowers meet fresh baked fruit pastries and orange zest. On the palate, sweet raisin, honey, vanilla, and apricot are met by jasmine and rose petals, like a dream frolic in spring meadows. The finish goes on and on with nutty elements, deep dark oak, and black tea. Bottled at 40% abv.
