10 to 15 year-old blend. This cognac has been dedicated to Général de Castex, 2-starred general under Napoléon 1st. Pierre de Castex led a cavalry regiment during Napoléon’s Russia campaign in 1813: circled by the Russians, the General saved his men while they built sleds to cross over the frozen river ‘Berezina’. After this feat, Napoléon told him: “Castex, you are a brave man. I make you General”. Pierre-Louis Giboin says a word: “It’s my favorite cognac as it brings what I expect when I drink a cognac: a deep and burnt nose, roundness in the mouth, and long and sensual finish.”
