André Petit VSOP Bons Bois Cognac

André Petit Cognac

The Andre Petite VSOP Bons Bois Cognac is an excellent quality VSOP to own, and one that represents good value for money.  The mixed soils of the Bons Bois terroir exert their own characteristics on the eaux-de-vie that hails from here.  Sweet vanilla is dominant, but further aromas and flavors develop throughout the tasting process.

This VSOP can be enjoyed in a number of different ways.  The traditional - neat, as a digestif, over ice for a subtle flavor difference, or combined with your favorite mixer to create a long drink on a hot summer's day.  It's your Cognac - your choice.  And for an introduction to the Cognacs of Andre Petite, this really is a great choice.

Tasting Notes

Tasting review:

Nose: A clear presence of vanilla aroma

Palate: The vanilla continues, along with floral hints, some sweet and some spice.

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.
