TASTING NOTES- A deep mahogany color. The nose opens on scents of jasmine tea, honeysuckle and walnut, followed by oak, vanilla, chocolate and a hint of curry. The bouquet expands on notes of candied fruit, saffron spices, ginger and honey mingled with nutmeg and cedar. Pierre Ferrand Sélection des Anges offers concentrated flavor leading into a very long finish.
PRODUCTION NOTES- As Cognac matures in oak barrels, slow evaporation occurs, refining the quality and concentrating the finest flavors and aromas. For centuries, the alcohol that evaporates during the aging process has been known as the mythical “Angels’ Share.” What remains in the barrel is a small quantity of Cognac after many years of maturation and evaporation. Our ancestors called it the “Angel’s Selection” and we call it “Sélection des Anges.”
