The Pasquet Napoleon Tradition Familiale Grande Champagne Cognac is a great place to start if you're looking for an introduction into the house of Jean Luc Pasquet. It doesn't get to be one of Max's favorite Cognacs for nothing! Aged for 15 years, this Napoleon Cognac represents all that makes the terrain of Grande Champagne the premier cru for Cognac production. It's a wonderfully aromatic blend, and this myriad of flavors continue on the palate, leading you on a journey to the ultimately long, lingering finish.
We have to say, this Cognac offers extraordinary value for money. From every aspect this is a joy to own. The bottle is of a traditional style, and the label refreshingly simple–a wonderful testimonial to the hand-crafted expertise that's gone into every aspect of its creation. Certainly a bottle that will stand proud at the grandest of occasions, and one that any lover of fine Cognac would be delighted to receive as a gift.

I tasted this cognac for the first time at prowein 2016 in dusseldorf. I really like this one, pretty round, pretty smooth and still artisan. Also the bottle is simplistic. If you know Jean and Amy, you also know more about the identity of this small family owned Grande Champagne producer. Great! Recommended!
