Since 1630, in the heart of the vineyards of Cognac, 10 generations of Ferrands 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.

A tribute to 10 generations of the Ferrand family behind the Cognac house, this VSOP is aged in French oak, with 20% in Sauternes casks. It shows a faint butterscotch scent and a languorous honeyed effect across the palate. Each sip opens citrusy and bright, with a drying midpalate that leads to finish a with a surprising meaty, umami-like note, all wrapped in subtle honeycomb.
