Growth area & soil: Bons Bois
The tasting experience of the Grosperrin 50 Years Old Bons Bois Cognac is the ability to step back in time. Created from eaux-de-vie from the smallest terroir of the regions (Bons Bois), this half-a-century aged Cognac is a true thrill for anyone who appreciates fine things.
Of course, as one would expect from a Cognac of this age, the color is a deep mahogany brown. And the taste! Well, this takes you on a true sensory journey - from the wonderful aromas through to the adventure on the palate through to the truly satisfyingly long finish...
The Cognac contained within this 35cl bottle is powerful - at 48.1° it's a wonderful strength. The simple, traditional style bottle and label are perfect for such a super-special Cognac, where the liquid contained within does all the talking. No bling necessary with this one.

About 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.
