Description

André Petit Vintage 1980 Cognac

André Petit Vintage 1980 Cognac is a unique vintage offering made up of Ugni-blanc grapes harvested in 1980. Following traditional methods, the grapes are hand-picked and carefully selected to form the eau-de-vie used to produce Cognac.

Crafted through the use of very old methods, the team at André Petit first harvests the grapes by hand and then later distil the eau-de-vie following the savoir-faire passed down by previous ancestors. No machinery is used to separate alcohol during the distillation process. Instead, the cellar master at André Petit must trust his nose and senses. This part of the Cognac-making process is almost extinct in the Cognac industry due to growing demand and the production of high quantities. As vinegrowers, this house has developed a very pronounced style of Cognac using intuition and personal taste. that strives to make sure its Cognac is of exceptional quality.

Presentation of the bottle

Presented in an oak wooden display box, this vintage Cognac oozes luxury. While the bottle itself remains humble to its roots and appears classic in style, this Cognac is without a doubt worthy of a spot on display. With its own story to tell, from the very first glance, it is clear that this bottle is quite literally dripping in history.

How to enjoy

A well-matured, vintage Cognac worthy of your utmost attention when tasting. For the best tasting experience, serve at room temperature, neat or on the rocks as a digestive following an indulgent dinner. Finish with a fine cigar for a moment of pleasure to remember.

About André 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.
