Tasting review

Eye: Golden shimmer and an amber robe.

Nose: Elegant, spicy, turmeric and candied ginger. Surprisingly fresh for an old Cognac. Rancio is delicate and not overpowering.

Palate: Oily attack, powerful without a burn. Candied fruit and ginger come through, with a delightful rancio to finish. The length is endless.

Description

A Borderies Cognac dating back to 1928

One part of Jean Grosperrin’s historic Cognac de Collection is the Grosperrin Borderies No.28 Cognac. A very old Cognac, the story behind these casks is particularly fascinating. It was bought from a widow and winemaker in the Borderies region who had been in the village of Burie since 1930. At almost 100 years old, it is a very fine Cognac descending from a terroir with an exceptional reputation for fine Cognac. With only a few precious hectoliters left, the family heirs today take the greatest care to preserve this unique heritage in the depths of their Paradis cellars. This particular Cognac has a wonderful rancio and harnesses spicy notes of turmeric and candied ginger.

The Borderies No.28 Cognac has an interesting story behind it forming part of the Cognac de Collection at Grosperrin. An 80-year-old couple sold the barrels to Jean in 1992, while his father-in-law had been a distiller and winegrower. Each year, he would give his children one or two barrels of the Cognac from that year, and it was these very casks that were sold to Jean Grosperrin years later. The cask of this very Cognac had been stored in a tiny cellar with no electricity, and had never been topped up after a large amount had evaporated! After 40 years they were only left with around 120 liters of the original 350-400 liters. It is for this reason that the remaining spirit has been guarded carefully and maintained to the highest of standards by the grandson of the Grosperrin Maison who operates 30 hectares on two small properties.

Bottled at 52.8% ABV, the decanter is slim with a look of hand-blown glass, with a wooden stopper. It also arrives in a light colored wooden box. Grosperrin never adds sugar or caramel coloring to their Cognacs.
