I don’t know anything about fine Cognac, so I was hoping for a little help and input from you. I recently purchased two full, corked bottles of cognac at an auction. They were mixed up in a group of old dirty bottles.
One is a Bignon Grande Champagne 1800 with label. The second bottle has no label, but does have an embossed seal of an “N” and a crown. The US tax seal says “three star, cognac brandy, fine champagne 1885”.
I am assuming this to be a Napoleon Cognac. Both bottles are corked and full, the the wax seal is gone. Both bottles have a very deep punt with pontil marks.
Both bottles have partial US tax stamps and seals. I was wondering if I have stumbled onto a great find or if I purchased two very old looking fakes.
