Collection Privée 1972 Cognac Pierre Ferrand
Vintage 1972 - Cognac Pierre Ferrand : The year 1972 was one that showed four distinct seasons...
The growing conditions in 1972 were ideal for making a cognac that could age for decades. With a unique combination of a very mild spring, a frost in May and one in September, it resulted in a very early blossoming. However, a very dry August with strong sunshine gave the grapes the acidity needed for a cognac of long maturation. This makes the 1972 vintage a very rare cognac. Held in old and humid cellars for all these years, this cognac today has reached its peak in maturity. It unveils aromas of candied fruits and apricots with a lush roundness and very long finish.
