Description:

Pierre Ferrand Memoire Vintage Edition Grande Champagne 1968
Cognac
official bottling, bottled 1999, bottle #419, "For Cognac, 1968 was a warm and dry year, producing a rather large crop of exceptionally ripe grapes. The crop from our oldest vines yielded over 1.25 barrels of full-bodied Cognac per acre. Tasting Notes: Well defined aromas of prunes and grapes. A robust, well-structured Cognac with excellent rancio, leaning toward toasted almonds and toffee notes. With age, the subtle pear and licorice flavors have become more apparent," wax capsule cracked, 41%
1 750ml bottle (owc)
Estimate $250-300
