Vieux Cognac VSOP Napoleon
Ch Gaultier et Co, a Barbezieux pres Cognac
The reader just found and old bottle of cognac in his grandpa’s cabinet. The bottle is from 20th century but it was intended to look antique, with the neck kind of melted on one side and a paint job that makes it look dusty. The bottle is corked and sealed. It was stored vertically in a dark place during the last 50 years.
Our reader would like to know if it has any value, and the probable bottling date, he guesses it’s about 60 years old. Reader asks: Do you think the cognac is ok to drink?
