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 mahogany

Bouquet: apricot, cinnamon and toasted brioche

Palate: Round and persistent, this cognac named from the share which evaporates each year from the barrels, manages to marry first and woody notes of the "rancio" typical old Grande Champagne Cognac

Finish: First intense sensation, aromas of fig, apricot and jasmine, quince and walnuts, toasted bread, chocolate notes on the finish. Endless finish. Elegance and finesse are in balance

Suggestion:

Food pairing: an apple pie served with a pineapple sorbet or a "tarte tatin" with a vanilla ice cream on the top
