Ferrand Selection Des Anges Grande Champagne 1er Cru du Cognac 750ml

SKU #690011 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 Something about this well-balanced liquid entrances, leading from sip to sip. Maybe it's the amber color, flecked with pretty orange and yellow highlights. Perhaps it's the complex aromas, which showcase sweet high notes reminiscent of dried fruit, toffee and Sauternes, or the warm, fruity flavor with a touch of almond extract. Whatever it is, pour a snifter and curl up by the fireplace.  (12/ 2010)

K&L Notes

A deeply-colored Cognac that entices with scents of vanilla, ginger, green tea, white flowers, walnuts and candied lemon zest that open on the palate with incredible balance and richness. Extremely long on the finish.

As a consummate brandy, cognac and armagnac lover, I wanted to purchase something very special for my 40ieth birthday-- a spirit with finesse, depth, and class, yet wouldn't require engaging in bank robbery or some other nefarious activity. After much research and deliberation, I settled upon purchasing the 30 year old Ferrand Selection Des Anges. And boy, did that bet ever pay off! This multi-layered cognac offers up a nose of spring fruit blossoms, lightly grilled almonds, flan drizzled with a little caramel, fresh pear slices, and a little clove spice thrown in for good measure. Along with a light, rounded mouthfeel, the palate is reminiscent of lemon blossoms, rose petals, more fresh pear and apricot, golden raisin, with a touch of brown spice. No astringency or dryness, but just enough oak tannins to provide good structure and balance. A truly fantastic cognac.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
