Grosperrin

The Cognac Grosperrin is a name that resonates with excellence and tradition in the world of Cognac. This family-owned company, founded by Jean Grosperrin, is renowned for its commitment to craftsmanship and the exceptional quality of its Cognacs. With a history that dates back over two centuries, Cognac Grosperrin is the fruit of a passion passed down from generation to generation.

The story of the Grosperrin family begins in the early 19th century, when Jean Grosperrin, a wine merchant, began producing and trading Cognac. Since then, the family has developed a unique expertise in selecting exceptional Cognacs from the region's finest Domaines.

What sets Cognac Grosperrin apart is its resolute focus on quality and authenticity. Unlike the big Cognac houses that produce blends, Grosperrin focuses on buying and maturing Cognacs from small, artisanal distilleries. These Cognacs are aged in oak casks in the traditional cellars of the Cognac region, where the mild, oceanic climate plays an essential role in the maturation process.

The terroir of the Cognac region is a key element in the quality of Cognacs Grosperrin. The vineyards lie on limestone soils, which give the grapes a unique mineral richness. What's more, the mild climate, tempered by the influence of the Atlantic Ocean, favors slow, steady ripening of the grapes, enabling the development of complex aromas of great finesse.

Description Grosperrin Héritage N°68 Brut de Fût.

This Cognac is not Millésimé, but like N°71 it can benefit from a minimum age indication of 36 years.

Produced on the limestone hillsides of Vars, at an altitude of around one hundred meters (Rare to Cognac where the average altitude is around 20 meters), this lot composed of several barrels of old Cognacs, all of which are remarkable, has undergone two successive inheritances.

In 1982, the producer's widow inherited the latter, and ceased to farm on her husband's death.

In 2017, she in turn passed away, and bequeathed the precious eaux-de-vie produced by her late husband to her children.

I had the opportunity to buy back these casks from them, including this one, which was housed quite distinctly from the other lots in the cellar of the son, himself a farmer on his parents' land.

Old gold robe, amber highlights.

On the nose, the color is announced: a Cognac of great class! Tense, saline and mineral notes, discreet hints of candied fruit.

The nose is very classy
