Eye: Reddish amber.

Nose: A delicate bouquet with incredible complexity. The rancio intermingles with the aromas of earthy undergrowth, vanilla and old prune.

Palate: On the palate, discover the pleasure of a prestigious Cognac that is superbly round and smooth. The rancio is certainly apparent. It is smooth, yet vivacious.

Description

André Petit Extra Decanter - An award winning Bons Bois Cognac for creating memories

Created for savoring the special moments, the André Petit Extra Tres Rare Decanter Edition is a certain crowd pleaser with its beautiful cubic decanter. It is composed of eaux-de-vie that have been aged for around 25 years on average with some reaching up to 35 years old. Made with grapes grown in the Bon Bois terroir, it is complex, round, smooth, and has a wonderful taste of rancio. And for anyone who's not yet familiar with the house of Andre Petit, this is a great place to start. Just be warned - once you taste this delight, you'll have no choice but to return and sample more of their wares.

The extended aging period has made for a Cognac of a far higher quality than you'd expect from something that's labeled simply as an 'EXTRA'. Composed with eaux-de-vie that have been created by the likes of Jacques Petit, his father and his grandfather, is perfectly underlines their family values.

This Cognac has been produced following very old methods. The grapes are harvested by hand and distilled following the teachings of his grandparents. In the distillation, they do not use any machines to separate alcohol - they trust their noses alone. This family producer are wine growers who develop a Cognac with a pronounced style following our feelings and tastes.

About André Petit Cognac

This small family-run cognac producer from Berneuil insists that their cognac is not merely of standard quality. This can be validated by the fact that the Petit family works with traditional methods handed down form their grandparents and harvest the grapes manually. This is almost extinct in the cognac industry due to growing demand and the production of high quantities. André Petit came to some sort of fame in the industry by stopping their contract with Hennessy in the 1960s and deciding to produce themselves. Like many small producers from the Cognac region, they also specialize in the making of Pineau des Charentes.
