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 1970.

Like the 1973 and 1969 Petite Champagne, this Cognac Millésimé comes from a family of notaries settled in Cognac for several generations.

This 1970 Petite Champagne was part of the estate of the father, who had bequeathed his stocks to his wife and son, a notary like himself. *

The father had purchased this lot from one of his clients, a major distillery in the Châteauneuf area.

The 1970 harvest was incredible in terms of volume and as such is sometimes referred to as the first "modern" harvest obtained at Cognac.

It was referred to, at the time, as the "harvest of the century". History has shown that since then, there have been many other "harvests of the century"!

Amber color.

On the nose, rising straight and direct, one immediately perceives that this is a racy Cognac.

Second nose notes are spicy (clove, cinnamon, nutmeg), with hints of leather and orange peel. These notes become more intense with aeration.

On the palate, a clean, powerful attack. Oily texture. Aromas of prune, walnut, English Christmas (Christmas pudding).

In the finish, straightforward yet gentle power, slight acidity. Cognac quite oaky, but the wood is well digested.

For lovers of Bruts from casks, and Cognacs straightforward, uncompromising.
