Your Cognac: Courvoisier Special Cognac Grande Fine Champagne

A reader owns a bottle of Courvoisier Special Cognac Grande Fine Champagne,  this bottle is very special because it is fully made from grapes out of the Grande Champagne region, the first cru of the Cognac.
Many producers make 100% Grande Champagne Cognac, but Courvoisier does not make any 100% Grande Champagne Cognac in their regular-portfolio. Therefore this Cognac is quite special!
It is also very special because it is a limited edition, only 2460  bottles have been made!

Courvoisier Napoleon – Fine Champagne Cognac

After tasted almost all accessible Courvoisier Cognacs, I needed to taste the well known Napoleon as well!
This Napoleon differs from the Courvoisier XO, because it uses Fine Champagne Cognacs, which means that at least 50% of the cognac comes from the Grande Champagne region, the rest needs to be from the Petite Champagne region.
