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 Héritage N°64.
This Très vieux Cognac comes from an indivision that was established when the winegrower died several years ago.
His widow and children manage the inheritance with care and patience, in memory of this man.
One of the grandchildren has taken over the property, which has since become a major Borderies operation.
The grandfather's stock, however, is managed separately, and housed in a separate chai in the center of the village of Burie, located in the heart of the Borderies.
Since its purchase, it has aged in the chai of Grosperrin in Saintes, on the banks of the Charente.
A very slight reduction was made more than five years ago.
Old gold cup, amber highlights.
On the first nose, the flowery side of Borderies is clearly expressed, with its notes of violet candy, dried flowers, spicy roses.
The second nose is deeper, denser, and we distinguish an elegant rancio, not very woody, caused by the oxidation of the fats contained in the alcohol, which time has made noble.
The spices are more frank, cigar box, licorice, more "mature".
On the palate, the attack is frank, mineral, one is immediately seized by the quality.
The development is both powerful and contained, the texture proves oily.
The long finish joins the aromas perceived on the nose.
Lots of elegance, a beautiful Borderies.
