Tasting review

Eye: A stunning flamed amber.

Nose: Light and floral.

Palate: A delectable roundness, with rich notes of chocolate and vanilla. True signs of age come to the fore.


The Andre Petit Napoleon: Aged between 3 and 5 decades

The André Petit Napoléon Cognac certainly makes a statement. The electric blue label perfectly contrasts its amber liquid within, and sets it apart from the rest - and with good reason. It has been aged between 30 and 50 years in oak casks.

Jacques Petit explains how the eaux-de-vie spends part of the aging process in newer casks, approximately 15 years. They are then transferred to older casks between 6 and 20 years, where the flavors and aromas develop to give them a delectable roundness. Notes of chocolate, vanilla dance across the palate, with a Cognac that is perfectly balanced - and has been aged for a very long time indeed. 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.

Serving Suggestions

This Cognac should be enjoyed neat, at room temperature and sipped slowly from a tulip glass.

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.
