A selection of Cognacs from 1990: André Petit Hors d'Age Réserve Familiale 1990 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 nearly 30 years. In fact, it is a combination of various Millésimes from 1990.
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.
Enjoy it at home with friends, neat and contemplatively. It is one for sharing - just as it was made.
Very Nice Cognac
Made in the real traditional cognac way by a great cognac producer. After letting the cognac breathe for a while in a tulip glass the taste was mellow, not overpowering, but enjoyable with wood, old cigar box, some underlining subtle fruit taste to it. The taste got better and better after every sip....
Feel the old taste
It's a very traditional cognac flavor. I drank the old wine several times a long time ago, which is the taste of this cognac. The aroma of pine wood and leather is emerging, with unforgettable taste and persistent aftertaste. The wine has been in the liquor for 30 years. Good cognac, will consider...
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.
