Indulge in a little part of history, with a bottle dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte’s love for Cognac. The Courvoisier Napoleon Cognac is somewhat of an icon; despite the fact that the house of Courvoisier was created 14 years after. While Napoleon himself did not get to try this luxurious spirit, its legacy is long lasting, as Napoleon III made Courvoisier their official Cognac supplier to the Imperial Court in 1869. The eaux-de-vie of this Napoleon Cognac are derived from both the Grande and Petite Champagne terroirs, and are blended together with the utmost expertise and care. This very spirit has had enough influence in the Cognac name to have an age denomination named after it. This Napoleon Cognac has been aged for up to 20 years, and its qualities from the Fine Champagne give it the lengthy finish that so many Cognac lovers desire. The chalky composition of the soil in this region is a result of millions of years of fossilization; now it is one of the most sought-after regions in Cognac, and produces high quality Cognacs such as this one.
Delicate and subtle cigar box bouquet, full-bodied and mellow, tender and stylish with a long-lingering fine memory.
Sandalwood: Born of the contact between cognac and barrel during ageing
Mushroom: This aroma can be traced back to the humid conditions in our carefully monitored earth-floored warehouses, where the cognac ages.
Dried Apricot: Hailing from the distillation on the lees, this labor-intensive process produces a diverse array of sublime aromas and flavours.
