To produce a quality cognac the vine must be treated tenderly, the wine distilled slowly, and the aging process carefully supervised. These are the simple but effective principles that have been followed in the making of the vintner cognacs at Pierre Ferrand. The Abel is a 45-year-old cognac. Rich and elegant flavors with great complexity. Truly, a very special cognac. This cognac was named after the cellarmaster who distilled it. Ruby-gold in color, with an incomparably subtle and delicate bouquet that can only come from long aging in oak cask. The lingering aroma and flavor of this superb product can last as long as 10 minutes on the palate.
