Grosperrin N°71 Petite Champagne Cognac
Anbaugebiet (Cru) & Boden: Petite Champagne
A Hors d’Age Cognac from the Grosperrin Cognac de Collection
Introducing a very fine Cognac indeed. The Grosperrin N°71 Petite Champagne is everything you would expect from the “big” Petite Champagne terroir. It is an elegant and refined Cognac, which is not a Vintage but has a guaranteed minimum age of 33 years spent sleeping in casks. It has been distilled over lees, and is a beautiful bottling due to its unique snapshot of the Petite Champagne.
The high chalk content of this terroir makes for fantastic eaux-de-vie. Grosperrin never adds color, sugar nor caramel to adjust the flavoring - making their Cognacs easier to drink.
Jean Grosperrin believes that the quality of a Cognac is directly related to the quality of the individual producing and maturing it. By visiting each winegrower and vineyard, hearing the story of the distillery and maturing techniques, he understands the precious nature of a Cognac before even tasting it. Each one of the Cognacs that he selects for the Collection tells its own story - one of older Cognac making techniques, without technology or guaranteed abundant harvests.
A simple bottle like the others of the Cognac de Collection, and bottled at 48.5% ABV.
How to serve
Enjoy this Cognac neat and savor its age.
Über Grosperrin Cognac
The independent Cognac house of Grosperrin is a relatively new one in the region, having only been established in 1999 by its founder, Jean Grosperrin. Grosperrin is based in Saintes which sits between the terroirs of Fins Bois and Borderies and it is today run by Jean’s son, Guilhelm, who took over in 2004 at just 23 years old.
Guilhelm’s mission is to discover producers all across the region in order to create truly unique Cognacs from the six crus. This vision was made possible by the fantastic relationships Jean Grosperrin built with producers, and that Guilhelm has since built on and expanded. Today, Grosperrin works with over 150 Cognac producers, from which Guilhelm will meticulously select barrels to craft into exquisite end bottles.
