Re: Important information on all Pierre Ferrand Cognacs

I'm very sorry to hear that, Roland. Still, thank you for the information. Pierre Ferrand may be gone, but i hope his legacy is passed on by his sons and grandsons. Pierre made some truly amazing cognacs, in my opinion some of the best, and i'm absolutly sure he's getting his rightful and well deser...

Re: Important information on all Pierre Ferrand Cognacs

Yes, you are absolutley right Cognac Fan! Pierre Ferrand only sold his master and sub brands, not his estate or chais with eaux de vie. Alexandre Gabriel and Jean-Dominique Andreu bought the cellars of château de Bonbonnet from Martell to use in their making of Pierre Ferrand and Gabriel & Andre...

Re: Tesseron Lot 29

Pierre, it's easy for me to talk forever about Jean Fillioux. Simply because it's one of my favourite brands. And now when Pierre Ferrand fallen down, into the darkness called modern business thinking, JF may be the first choise - at least when it comes to their prestige product, Jean Fillioux Reser...

Re: Tesseron Lot 29

Yes, there are some different bids out there about the age of the eau de vie in the Lot 29 blend :) A quick web-search shows: The Swedish importers LWM Wine and Bibendum tells us that Lot 29 contains spirits "from 1906 to 1930". Thats also the opinion of the Ukraine bar and cognac shop &qu...

About Tesseron Lot 29

Yes, you are right about a lot of things, numen. Due to the fact that it's forbidden by french law to put a vintage mark on a cognac bottle that's not been strictly controlled by BNIC (Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac), Tesseron use this "Lot" mark to give the customers a hint ...

Important information on all Pierre Ferrand Cognacs

Gentlemen. The original producer Pierre Ferrand sold his brand to the two businessmen Alexandre Gabriel and Jean Dominique in 1992. For more than a decade, the range of cognacs were made in the way old Pierre Ferrand wanted to. Then he and the owners (i think Alexandre Gabriel is the sole owner now)...
