Pierre Ferrand, world renowned for its fine 100% Grande Champagne cognacs, is introducing a special cognac to complement a superior smoke : Pierre Ferrand Cigar Blend, Reserve Havana. “We wanted a cognac that is in balance with a structured cigar. This cognac works well because of the inherent structure of Grande Champagne cognacs”, explains Ferrand’s Jean-Dominique Andreu, an avid cigar smoker himself. For six years, they have been the sole cognac suppliers to the prestigious Club des Parlermentaires Amateurs de Havane, which counts among its members France’s top politicians.
Pierre Ferrand Ancestrale Grande Champagne cognac is unique, not only because of its age, but because of its structure, which has allowed it to age in oak for so many decades and still improve. Most cognac would be totally out of balance after such long wood aging. But on the contrary, Ancestrale displays an incredible richness of aromas. Burnished gold in color, this rare cognac is comparable to a very old wine in its subtlety and complexity. Having a very delicate nose, it balances prune and chocolate aromas in a perfectly aged, pure eau de vie.
