Eye: Golden.

Nose: Both notes from the younger and older eaux-de-vie come to the nose; the tonus of the younger ones, and then the round, voluptuous flavour of the older ones. Hints of lime blossom and vanilla come to mind.

Palate: It has a light, sweet flavor with hints of marmalade confiture. It is not particularly spicy.

Vallein Tercinier Napoléon Cognac

Introducing the Vallein Tercinier Vieille Réserve Napoleon Cognac, which is a Fine Champagne Cognac made up of eaux-de-vie of the Petite and Grande Champagne regions - renowned for their chalky soils, leading to high acidity and a fabulous Cognac quality. The youngest component is 15 years old, so you are sure to be wowed by its careful assemblage. Amongst the Vallein Tercinier collection, it is a multiple award winner, and carefully marries a young, “freshly squeezed” character with a rich velvety flavor; often typical of older Cognacs. Falling into the Napoleon age category, it is a guarantee for years of craft and careful monitoring of the eaux-de-vie, plucking them from the cellar at just the right moment. The name dates back to the Napoleonic era, when the French emperor took crates of Cognac to the island of St Helena during his exile. This bottle is a homage by the house of Vallein Tercinie, which has carefully combined the old with the new.

The Vallein Tercinier Cognac house have been operating since 1850, and have amassed five generations of knowledge about fine-tuned Cognac production. Located in the Saintonge region, they now have an extensive collection of Cognacs that really do put a spotlight on their wonderful cellar of eaux-de-vie.

The Vallein Tercinier Napoleon Cognac arrives in a simple bottle, with a gold embellished logo. There is also a wonderful gold-leaf look illustration of the Domaine des Forges, where the magic happens for this Cognac brand.Presentation is key for this family of Cognac makers, and the box is equally as stunning. Cream with gold embellishment, an illustration of the Cognac house and family crest; you are sure to want to put this in a place for all to see.

How to enjoy the Vallein Tercinier Napoleon

About Vallein Tercinier Cognac

With over 500 years of history, the artisan house of Vallein Tercinier is one that deserves the attention of all Cognac lovers – from those new to eaux-de-vie to the connoisseur. This brother and sister team bring an expertise to craft Cognac that's just aching to be discovered.

Many of their Cognac's have been awarded top class awards in many industry competitions, and this has meant a growing awareness of their products in some quarters. But, as with the aging process of Cognac, such a small craft brand is often lost amongst the noise razzmatazz of the 'big boys'. And that really is a crime, because as many esteemed connoiseurs are finding out, the offerings of Vallein Tercinier are of superb quality, unique, and once you've discovered them, will become a 'must have' brand to always have in your drinks cabinet.

Catherine and Louis are very proud to have stepped into the shoes of their many ancestors. And as is in keeping with family tradition, the've continued to move the company forward, whilst remaining true to the pure art of Cognac production. They've adapted the facilities to take full advantage of modern technology, and continue to produce some very special Cognacs indeed.
