When I tasted this Grande Champagne cognac I thought it was one of the better extra olds. Obviously, coming from a smaller maison, this cognac presents some edges.. but it's a really authentic spirit from one of my favorite producers Pierre de Segonzac! If you love authentic products, go for this one.
