Growth area & soil: Fins Bois
Raymond Bossis Napoleon Carafe Cognac
The Raymond Bossis Napoleon Cognac is one-of-a-kind and a rare gem. Be prepared to be seduced by its elegant and well-balanced palate, offering a tasting experience that you won’t soon forget.
Made with eaux-de-vie produced from grapes harvested in the low-lying area of the Fins Bois terroir, this Cognac is characteristically round and supple, with aromas of freshly squeezed fruit. The soil across the Fins Bois has a high percentage of clay and chalk (known as groies), producing a quality similar to Fine Champagne, but one which ages slightly quicker. This Napoleon-grade Cognac has been aged for over two decades in French oak, developing a deep red color and an exceptional finish.
Raymond Bossis is a family-run Cognac house committed to respecting the environment and seeking to make the most of its thriving vineyards. According to Optimus protocol, using traditional technologies and sustainable farming, they work to minimize the impact of pesticides on their grapes and eaux-de-vie. As a member of the Federation of Independent Winegrowers, the house of Raymond Bossis guarantees the involvement of the winemaker at all stages of production: from winemaking, in the cellar, harvesting the grapes and marketing. The estate offers a wide range of products ranging from natural grape juice to Pineau des Charentes, Charentais wines, sparkling wines and Cognacs of varying age categories.
Presentation of the bottle
Raymond Bossis Napoleon Cognac comes in an elegant carafe bottle that could almost be mistaken for a luxurious cologne bottle. Topped with a large golden bottle stopper, enjoy the process of pouring the Cognac into the glass, as the bottling on its own is part of the product that, too, should be enjoyed. Worthy of a spot center stage, place this bottle on the shelf for all to see when passing by the bar.
How to enjoy
Napoleon Cognac is best enjoyed neat, at room temperature as a digestive. Pour the liquid gold into a snifter glass and pair it with a cigar to further elongate the experience.
