Chatelle Napoleon V.S.O.P. Brandy (700ml)
In spite of the fact that he took an interest in grape cultivation on the island of Elba and much cognac is connected with his name, Napoleon (who almost certainly had cancer of the stomach) was quite indifferent to what he ate and drank. This truth of history has not deterred inumerable brandies from adopting his title as a rather meaningless designation of quality.
Nevertheless, 100% French brandy at this price is uncommon. Perhaps that’s why Chatelle’s popularity as an everyday drinking brandy maintains its strength. Recommended. Always good value. 37% alc./vol.
