Eye: Solid amber.

Nose: Exotic fruit, lime and honey combine with a hint of chalk to achieve clarity and balance. Notes of mushrooms and old cellars - classic rancio - create a luxurious balance.

Palate: Well-balanced but with powerful strength, the rancio is clearer on the palate. An oily mouthfeel leads to a dense finish that lasts long after the last sip.

N°45 Fins Bois by Maison Grosperrin: a Natural Beauty

Grosperrin N°45 Fins Bois Cognac delights without the need for any bells or whistles. Made from grapes grown on the esteemed soil of the Fins Bois, this is a rare Cognac from a fantastic family-run house. At 52.1% ABV and presented in a classy Cognacaise bottle, this is an irresistible package that lets the impeccable nature of its terroir do the talking.

Grosperrin, led by Guilhem Grosperrin, is an independent family-run business with a charming history. Guilhem’s father Jean Grosperrin is the founder, and he worked as a shepherd and sheep shearer before becoming a distiller in the early 80s and eventually developing this thriving cognac house. Committed to revealing the intrinsic spirit of Charente heritage, Guilhem proudly carries on his father’s legacy. The cellars used by Grosperrin boast constant moderate humidity levels, ideal for making remarkable eaux-de-vie, with the limestone soil of the Fins Bois creating the perfect terroir for growing long-lasting vines to carry an abundance of fruit.

On the nose, N°45 Fins Bois is a natural beauty, notes of exotic fruit, lime and honey combining with limestone to achieve clarity and balance. Rancio joins the family to assert a welcome earthiness, and notes of mushrooms and old cellars complete the picture of a classic cognac that nonetheless offers a fresh liveliness.

N°45 Fins Bois attacks the palate with a frank flavor and alluring oily quality, very well balanced despite the high volume at 52.1%. Earthy rancio revisits the palate and an overall experience of purity is realized. The finish is long and dense, a delightfully full tasting experience.

Amber and honey hues render the bottle alluring and charming, inviting every Cognac aficionado to indulge in the fruits of this fantastic terroir.
