Tasting review

Eye: Reddish amber.

Nose: A delicate bouquet with incredible complexity. The rancio intermingles with the aromas of earthy undergrowth, vanilla and old prune.

Palate: On the palate, discover the pleasure of a prestigious Cognac that is superbly round and smooth. The rancio is certainly apparent. It is smooth, yet vivacious.


A Bons Bois XO aged for 25 years on average

If you're new to this Cognac house, this super value for money André Petit XO Tres Rare Cognac would be a wonderful introduction. It is composed of eaux-de-vie that have been aged for around 25 years on average. Made with grapes grown in the Bon Bois terroir, it is complex, round, smooth, and has a wonderful taste of rancio. Family, tradition, and quality are what the house of Andre Petit stand for, and it really is apparent when it comes to this XO.

The extended aging period has made for a Cognac of a far higher quality than you'd expect from something that's labeled simply as an 'XO’. Composed with eaux-de-vie that have been created by the likes of Jacques Petit, his father and his grandfather, is perfectly underlines their family values. 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.

How to Enjoy

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, resulting in a much older Cognac than you'd expect for the cost. A great buy.

Value for money:

A lot of wood & spices

I really like this XO although the nose is a bit dry, the mouth is a nice fresh splash! The after taste is a bit rough but I prefer this compared to flat finishes.

About Andre 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.
