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: deep copper

Bouquet: honey and almond

Palate: Silky entry leads to very smooth, sweetish medium-to full-bodied texture with nice honey, marzipan, and black tea-like flavours that envelope the mouth

Finish: Finishes with a long and tasty fruit and oak driven fade. A very nice, easy-to-appoach XO

Suggestion:

"This beautiful cognac that we will avoid to serve as a long drink due to his quality, can go well with a grilled almond Macaroon and candied chestnut ice cream, as a french toast with salted caramel ice cream."
