    Napoleon Grande Fine Champagne Cognac Reserve, 1811, 1 bottle.
    Perhaps one of the rarest finds, this bottle represents an important time in history. It was not only the year that the town of Cognac received Napoleon, but also the year that his second wife, Marie Louise gave birth to his son. The following year, Napoleon began his disastrous campaign against Russia, amassing a vast army of 500,000 infantry, 100,000 cavalry and 80,000 in the baggage trains. plus other contingents from all over Napoleon's world. It is hard to believe that a cognac that was made in honour of Napoleon, while he was still alive and which he almost certainly tasted, is still available to purchase and drink.
    Napoleon Cognac was recreated by Couvoisier in 1910. It is now a Fine Champagne cognac (a classification that didn't exist in 1811) and is made from blend of Grande and Petite Champagne cognacs, some matured for up to 20 years. The terms 'Grande' and 'Petite' Champagne are a reference to the classification of the areas where the Gognac grapes (the Ugni Blanc variety) are grown.
