Reviews of purchase Pierre de Segonzac, XO Reserve Grande Champagne, in tube, 0.7 L
Cognac is a dark copper color.
The round, mellow taste of cognac has both refinement and saturation. In its palette harmoniously blend notes of plum, tree, figs, raisins, liquorice, tobacco and dry straw. A long, elegant aftertaste ends with the nuances of fried walnut and vanilla.
A delicate aroma of cognac opens with shades of honey, almonds, dried bananas, orange peel, mandarin, black tea, which acquire volume and expressiveness thanks to the framing of the tones of wood and flowers.
Cognac is served as a digestive, well combined with cigars, as well as exquisite desserts with nuts and caramel.
Cognac Pierre de Segonzac, XO Reserve Grande Champagne is far from similar drinks of its class. Its round, seductive taste is the result of a long aging, during which the cognac did not lose its passion, but acquired maturity and nobility. Distillation of cognac is carried out exclusively from own wines from grapes of grade Uni Blanc which guarantee presence in a bouquet of bright fruit tones. In the process of aging cognac absorbs tannin substances from limousine oak wood. The average age of alcohols included in its blend is about 15 years.
The management of the Cognac House Pierre de Segonzac has always been the responsibility of the real hereditary masters "bouilleur de cru", which means using only the harvest from their own vineyards. The beginning of the history of the House was laid in 1702 by Jacques Ferrand, who broke a vineyard in the chalky soils of the Grand Champagne region. He defined the traditions of quality, which the next generations of the dynasty always adhered to and corresponded to. Since 1930, his descendant Pierre Ferrand started to restore the family business under a new name - "Pierre de Segonzac." In the cellars of the House are still stored spirits, distilled by his father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Serving buyers and selling deals with his youngest son Christian, and work in the vineyards - his grandson Pablo. To stay on the crest of a wave in a highly competitive environment, Pierre de Segonzac's house creates only prestigious and exceptionally old cognacs. 10 years is the minimum period of aging, which is allowed to be used in the blending of its elite drinks.
