A particularly good-looking bottle of cognac from one of the region's finest houses: Croizet, founded in 1805 by Léon Croizet and yet the family have been making wines since the 16th century.  The initials B. L. at the bottom of the label are those of Benjamin Léon, grandson of founder Léon.  He was still the owner of the house when this vintage was produced in 1928, but is famous for his earlier interventions to save the cognac industry.  In 1883, he took the bold move to replant the vines ravaged by Phylloxera with American stock and to surround them by stone walls, an effective choice that kept the transplanted vines from becoming diseased.  For this he was awarded France's highest honour, the Légion d'honneur, established by Emperor Napoléon in 1802, just three years before the Croizet house opened it's dor.
