A FAMILY STORY SINCE 1702

Today the family domain is the business of Pablo, the son of Christian. It is him who is in charge of the grape harvests, of the administrative management, of the storage of brandies and new plantations. With him a piece of new generation of man and vineyard come to immortalize an ancestral passion.

The vineyard is located in Grande Champagne, a district that is the land of the finest Cognacs. Today, Pierre's family is one of the few Cognac houses that are specialised in old Cognacs. The 75 acres vineyards are planted with Ugni-blanc. It is the traditional variety of grapes in Cognacs delimited area. Grapes are vinified into a light, fruity wine which is distilled on fine lees.

Pierre de Segonzac's Cognacs are aged in oak barrels from Limousin. Young "eaux-devie" are first stored in new barrels for one year, then moved to older casks. Each year, there is as much as 3% of Cognac production that evaporates. This evaporation is known as the Angels' share. Pierre's youngest blend ages at least seven years in casks before being sold.

Tasting notes:

Colour: copper

Bouquet: dry fruits and honey

Palate: A smooth entry leads to a round, off-dry medium-bodied palate with toffee and baked fruit flavours. Finishes with a long, smooth brown spice and crème brulée fade

Finish: A delicious, fruit-driven artisanal style that displays a long finish. Haunting and intense

Suggestion:

Enjoy it straight or on the rocks to soften his intensity; as an aperitif or after-dinner. 

Serve it with a selection of cheeses (Bleu d’Auvergne, Roquefort, Cheddar...) and deli meat such as cured hams or Pata Negra.
