André Petit Hors d'Age Cognac Carafe Cristale
Growth area & soil: Blend
The André Petit Millésime 1970 Vintage Cognac is a wonderful old eaux-de-vie from the harvest of 1970. It will appeal to those who enjoy knowing a little of the history about their tipple, in particular, understanding the exact age and the harvest from which it came.
The house of André Petit specializes in producing Cognac of outstanding quality - and this one is certainly no exception. Blended with the passion and knowledge that's been handed down through the generations of this small, traditionally run Cognac house, it represents exceedingly good value for money for such a high class product. The presentation is also outstanding, being offered in a tradtional style Cognac bottle within a wooden oak box. Would make the ideal present for the lover of fine liquor.
About Andre 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.
