The André Petit Hors d'Age Réserve Familiale Limited Edition is a wonderful old Cognac aged for around 50 years. It's a blend of Fine Champagne eaux-de-vie, meaning all the components were grown in the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne terroirs of the region.
This 19th century delight is a strictly limited edition, presented in a beautiful bottle nestled within an oak wood presentation box. Rich, well balanced, and satisfying, this is a wonderful Cognac to bring out on a special occasion. It will appeal to those who collect special Cognacs, brimming with a myriad of aromas and flavor. One for the connoisseurs.
Warning: Last items in stock!
Nose: Rich and balanced, some oak and spices. Some flower, and tobacco leaves.
Palate: The taste impressive and old, the finish is long and fresh.
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.
