Light, complex, elegant, dry, mineral driven, generally I do not use any of these descriptors when discussing Cognac, but fortunately the Cuvee Napoleon II from Dudognon is not the typical Cognac. Showcasing a different side and style entirely from the types of Cognac's brought into the US this the Napoleon II hints at vanilla and white stone fruit while remaining earthy and dry. There is a layer of minerality and good acid here, again so different from my typical Cognac. While this is not the Cognac for everyone, it is definitely worth getting into if you are ready to explore something delicious and new.
