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.
What makes Cognacs Grosperrin even more special is their age. The house focuses on acquiring mature Cognacs, some of which are over 50 years old. These Cognacs are carefully selected for their exceptional quality and their ability to reveal the full richness and complexity of the Cognac terroir. Each bottle is a living testimony to the region's ancestral know-how and heritage.
The Grosperrin approach to Cognac production is also marked by its respect for traditional methods. Cognacs are distilled by hand in copper stills, using techniques handed down from generation to generation. This attention to detail and tradition ensures pRéserver authenticity and the very essence of Cognac.
The Cognacs Grosperrin are distinguished by their aromatic complexity, finesse and balance. Each bottle tells a unique story, with subtle aromas of fruit, flowers, spices and woody notes. Tasting a Cognac Grosperrin is an unforgettable sensory experience, offering depth and elegance that will delight the most demanding connoisseurs.
Description Grosperrin 1989 Brut de Fût.
This Cognac Millésimé comes from a vineyard located in Brie-sous-Mathan, a village in the heart of one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Saintonge wine region, on clay-limestone terroirs.
With a winegrowing history that goes back almost a thousand years, this quiet village is renowned for the quality of its vineyards.
The winegrower had kept his harvests from the late 1980s and early 1990s, due to the economic crisis that hit the region hard from 1992.
Sales had collapsed, and many winegrowers had been forced to keep previous years' harvests, for lack of a buyer.
Old gold dress.
On the nose, it's a Cognac characteristic of Fins Bois with slightly sweet, fruity notes (mango, blackberry, cooked pineapple), underpinned by a pleasant salinity, testifying to a terroir that's more mineral than clay.
There's a certain length and a very nice balance to this aromatic whole, which makes you want to put it in your mouth.
At first taste, this Cognac is supple, almost discreet, but very quickly it takes on amplitude.
The palate is as greedy as the nose, the fruitiness extended by spicy notes that mark the 31 years of barrel aging.
The finish is velvety, very fragrant, and makes you want to have a refill.
An accessible Cognac, for lovers of traditional Fins Bois.
