A Grosperrin Borderies Cognac from 1964
This very old Cognac, the Grosperrin No. 64 Borderies Cognac, comes from an indivision that was established at the death of the winemaker several years ago. His widow and children patiently managed the inheritance in memory of their father. One of the children then took over the property, who has since become a large landowner in the Borderies cru. The grandfather's stock is managed separately, however, and housed in a separate cellar in the center of the village of Burie at the heart of the Borderies region. It comes from a very small farm and indicates that it is everything a Borderies Cognac should be.
The current owners came to possess the Grosperrin No 64 Borderies cask through Jean Grosperrin, who worked as a broker. It has since it was purchased, aged in the Grosperrin family cellar of Saintes, on the banks of the Charente river. It has only been reduced slightly more than three years ago.
Grosperrin is one of the last independent Cognac houses. As a broker, Jean made partnerships with a number of producers who opened their doors to him and allowed him to buy some of their most precious stocks. The company philosophy is to maintain individual grower batches, without blending them with others, producing a wide array Cognacs from all appellations.
This Cognac has been bottled at 52.1% ABV.
