Since 1630, in the heart of the vineyards of Cognac, 10 generations of Ferrand's have passed down an abiding knowledge of the vine and of distillation. This Premier Cru de Cognac is a tribute to these men of character, for whom a great cognac was above all the fruit of patient work on a great terroir.
Living in the venerable mansion of her ancestors, Mademoiselle Henriette, the last direct descendant of this prestigious lineage, was, during her lifetime, the guardian of this precious memory. She chose to entrust it to us, and she is the inspiration for this superb blend. We named it “10 Générations.”
Grande Champagne Cognac, 10 Générations is only made with Ugni-Blanc grapes. Distilled slowly on fine lees, it is aged in French oak with 20% in Sauternes casks. With freshness, it is an opulent Cognac.
Nose: Honey, apricot, coconut, caramel, fruit cake and raisins. Then develops into nose of rose, orange blossom, nutmeg and ginger.
Palate: Expect notes of dried fruits such as baked pear, muscat grape and pineapple soaked in Sauternes, gently toasted nuts, wildflowers and spring blossom. Finish is long and fresh with minty notes, then fresh tobacco.
