Presented in a tradition style Cognac bottle, its simplicity allows the quality of its contents to speak for itself. A clean sepia and black label with the renowned sketch of the Cognac house conveys both the history and natural elements that the Napoleon embodies.

How to enjoy
The Napoleon is best enjoyed at room temperature. Place in a Cognac snifter and hold in the palm of your hand to gently warm the brandy. Patiently wait for a few moments to allow the sweet aromas to release. Suits a post-dinner tipple beautifully.
About Paul Giraud
The location of Cognac Giraud is in the prime "1er Cru" cognac growing area of the Grande Champagne, which allows Giraud to produce an exquisite cognac range, from a 6-year old to a 50-year old cognac. The estate is based in Bouteville, and with some additional vineyards in St. Même-les-Carrières, the growing area comes to 35 hectares. The cognac house combines a strong belief in traditional methods with a modern take on cognac production, avoiding any kinds of chemicals or pesticides in their agriculture and coloring additives in the final blends. The work on the plants as well as the actual harvest of the grapes is still done manually, assuring the best possible treatment of the grapes in order to generate the highest quality for the eau-de-vie. Also, Giraud only produces pure vintage cognacs, which means that they never blend eaux-de-vie from different years, but trust in the fine differences between the annual vintages.
