René Niel was a small negoçiant. Before 1856 cognac producers were not allowed to use their own labels so had to sell their cognac through negoçiants. We know very little about this cognac other than to say that we have been fortunate in having tasted a small sample previously and were most impressed with it. The bottle and label are in good condition.
|Flavour||Whilst our knowledge of these old cognacs is sufficient in many cases to make an educated assessment of their flavour, we are unable to taste many of these old brandies to be certain of their qualities.|
