A unique Grande Champagne Cognac. The color is a deeper, brilliant, golden yellow. Pierre Ferrand Reserve has a lovely vanilla bouquet, with overtones of dried roses and apricot jam. It also has hints of walnuts, cinnamon, and liquorice. It is full-bodied and rich on the palate, with an excellent balance that can persist for 3 - 4 minutes.
Aromas point to honey, vanilla, Sherry and nectarines. It warms as it goes down, with plenty of spice and dried fruit, and evolves on the palate from light (honey) to dark (dried orange peel, caramel, clove) in an intriguing way. Sip and ponder, perhaps with a few squares of dark chocolate.
