Tasting Notes
This Napoleon was aged 15 years in oak. It's woody, full of almond notes and spices. Slight sweet notes on the palate, round and good length.

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.

I tasted this cognac the other day, at a friend's house. it's a great, great cognac - and for the price of 35 euros.. great value for money. We blind tasted and compared to some cognacs from Bache Gabrielsen, the Pure & Rustic line... and Petit's cognac beat them all.
