Napoleon is a blend of spirits distilled from the Ugni Blanc and Baco grape varieties produced in the two main wine areas of the Appellation Contrôlée: Bas Armagnac and Tenarèze.
It is also a combination of two different types of distillation: a double distillation in pot stills (alambics) which is predominent, and a single distillation in continuous stills, used in small part.
Perfumed, smoky nose, prunes and vanilla with faint crushed mint leaves.
The palate is smooth and well balanced, with prune, vanilla, stone fruits. Spice emerges in the long finish.
Slightly more aromatic, sweeter and darker than the VSOP.
