Eye: Rich bright amber.

Nose: A harmonious, floral nose.

Palate: Although very young, it's already very harmonious. The vanilla and floral aromas of young Cognac are enriched with the flavors of wood. There is a touch of rancio, but not too much.

Description

A VS Cognac for Newcomers to the World of Cognac

The André Petit VS *** Cognac is a wonderfully vibrant young Cognac from this family run house. Brush off any misconceptions you might have about a VS quality, this one has been aged for around 4 years, and despite its youth it shows extreme maturity and balance for its age. This is a wonderful staple Cognac to own. It represents great value for money, and can be enjoyed in many ways.

The producer describes it as a Cognac that is enjoyable for people who are new to the world of Cognac, with balanced aromas of flowers and a touch of wood. It is for those that are seeking a fitting introduction to this vast and fascinating world of eaux-de-vie.

This Cognac has been produced following very old methods. The grapes are harvested by hand and distilled following the teachings of his grandparents. In the distillation, they do not use any machines to separate alcohol - they trust their noses alone. This family producer are wine growers who develop a Cognac with a pronounced style following their feelings and tastes. It has been aged in newer barrels, and then transferred to older barrels.

Serving Suggestions

Drink neat as an aperitif to enjoy the wonders of a young-eaux-de-vie. Or add some ice, or perhaps your favorite mixer to create a smooth long drink to enjoy on a hot day. It's also really well suited to cocktails, one that will appeal to many who like the substance of a Cognac as the base. All in all, an excellent Cognac to have in your drinks repertoire.

Presentation of the bottle

We love the simple, vintage look of this bottle. It's bottled at 40% ABV, in a 70cl bottle. 

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.
