André Petit XO Très Rare Cognac

André Petit Cognac

The Andre Petit XO Tres Rare Cognac is created solely from eaux-de-vie from the Bons Bois terroir of the region.  Family, tradition, and quality are what the house of Andre Petit stand for, and it really is apparant when it comes to this XO.  It's complex, yet round and smooth, with great rancio - if you're new to this Cognac house, this super value for money XO would be a wondeful introduction.

Hints of vegetation, vanilla, and old prunes are immediately noticable.  This is a delightful Cognac to enjoy as a digestif after a good meal.  For the adventurous out there, try dropping in a couple of rocks of ice to release a different taste sensation.  This would be a great addition to anyone who appreciates great Cognac, as most of the components aged for around 25 years, creatings a much older Cognac than you'd expect for the cost.  A great buy.

Tasting Notes

Tasting review:

A fine nose, very complex notes, strong rancio, vanilla and old dark fruit. Round and smooth.

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.
