Paul Giraud is a small Cognac producer that has been harvesting its own vineyards to make brandy since 1650. Paul Giraud believes in traditional methods, hand-harvesting in October to ensure the respect of the fruit. The vinification and distillation take place in December and January. The fruit is finally stocked in Limousin oak barrels in humid aging cellars, where the wine will reach its exceptional suppleness.
This Cognac Napoléon is a classic from Grande Champagne with perfect balance between fruit and age. It is rich and very elegant with a touch of honey, prunes and plums. Giraud’s Cognacs are appreciated all over the world.
Notes of peach, plum, and fresh-from-the-hive honey characterize the nose, which give way to notes of burnt vanilla-sugar and caramel on the tongue. A smooth, warm mouthfeel combines with gentle notes of allspice and clove to give an overall well-balanced delivery.
