Description

A Hors d’Age Family Affair: André Petit Hors d'Age Réserve Familiale Cognac

The André Petit Hors d'Age Réserve Familiale Limited Edition Cognac is the true definition of a family special. Having selected and assembled a series of Vintage Cognacs from his father’s stock, Jacques Petit presents a wonderfully old Cognac aged for around 50 years. In fact, it is a combination of various Millésimes from 1961, but also contains eaux-de-vie from 1955 and 1969. 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 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 their feelings and tastes.

Jacques Petit crafted this Cognac in such a way that would make it richer on the palate, longer in the mouth and less dry. Rich, well balanced, and satisfying, this is a wonderful Cognac to bring out on special occasions.

Almost perfect Hors d'Age

I personally love the Cognacs of Andre Petit. Exceptional value for money and really artisanal products. I love the smaller producers, there are such great Cognacs out there, it doesn't have to be one of the top 5 brands. This Hors d'Age from Petit Cognac is a pleasure - I had Cognacs with a more balanced palate, but this really is whining at a high level.

A masterpice by Jacques

This is really a wonderful Cognac created by Jacques. It's a Fine Champagne with the typically characteristic notes aged for decades.

Starting with the nose it directly shows the complexity and get's you in the right mood. You can notice the oaky character with lite floral aspects. The palate is smooth and exceptional round with a long finish to enjoy every aspect of it you have to take your time and enjoy it.

It's a real artisan Cognac which reveals the magic done by Petit. Nowadays the traditional techniques can only be mastered by long experience. Jacques is the perfect person to create a superb Hors d'Age.
