André Petit Hors d’Age Grande Reserve de Famille 1990 Cognac 0,7L
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. Also he distills on an open fire. In the distillation, no machines are used to make the cut. 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.
This vintages Cognacs spend in oak barrel from Limousin between 35-40 years. No caramel or sugar added. Limited quantity are available.
