Paul Giraud Cognac Napoleon Grande Champagne 15y.o

For the aging of Napoleon, Paul Giraud only use 25% new barrel.

The new barrel brings two essential things: the colour and the woody tannins. But the very delicate aromas of vine flowers (comparable to acacia or elderflower) cannot stand to be masked by an excess of tannin, thus the use of more aged oak.

Napoleon is the olfactory memory of white wine from Ugni-blanc. This natural acidity of the varietal - which would not necessarily be a quality for a table wine - becomes an essential asset for Grande Champagne brandies. The aromatic freshness of the whole range is supported by this acidity. Sweet, honeyed, plummy, pruney fruit on the palate. Same elegance, but more richness and depth, and savoury woody character. Classic Grande Champagne with perfect balance between fruit and age.
