Tasting Notes

Since 1776, the Dudognon family has been carrying on this great estate's legacy as one of Cognac's premier independent houses. Choosing not to sell any of their prized stocks to the bigger houses, the Dudognon's are able to put together a stunning range of custom blends much older on average than their bigger competitors. This Napoleon blend was bottled exclusively for us from brandies aged 15 years or more (over ten years older than the minimum age for XO) hand-chosen from selected barrels. Give this one some time to open up in your glass as it slowly reveals notes that include orange blossoms, lemongrass, fresh marjoram, raw cocoa, peach pits, apricots, honey, and almonds.

Staff Pick Notes

It takes a patient hand to create a complex spirit of light flavors. Dudognon Estate understands this and reflects it in their work. The result is a slinky brandy that will seduce your mind and bend your elbow. To fall for this Cognac is to dine with Bacchus himself! Like any decadent feast it is a long table of exotic flavors and aromas. Fresh pears, white flowers, and rich toffee emanate from the glass. The palate is a bounty of juicy apricots, caramelized sugar, and powerful black tea. When the bottle is empty, and your senses have returned all you’ll wonder is, “Oh Cognac, why must you always leave so soon?”
