Tasting review

Eye: An amber robe.

Nose: First nose introduces discreet notes of violet (Parma Violets!), Hyacinth, and tubers. These delicate, elegant floral and sweet notes are complemented by dried flowers, leather and a particular rancio.

Palate: Old books and spice, cedar wood and rancio. A truly stunning old Cognac. The finish is lengthy, the rancio is structured, and notes of orange and licorice appear.

Growth area & soil: Borderies

Description

A Hors d’Age Cognac from the Borderies region

A very old Cognac from the highly sought after Borderies cru is the Grosperrin No.48 Borderies Cognac. A ‘complete’ Cognac that has embraced its many years spent sleeping in oak casks, it is a result of years of savoir-faire and heritage dating back to 1794 descended from a family near the village of Saint-Sulpice de 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.

The Borderies N.48 Cognac exemplifies the sweet, violet and honeyed notes typical of this cru, and has been deemed an ‘incredibly complex’ Cognac. Invite your senses on a journey through the history of this independent Cognac brand.

Bottled at 46.8% ABV, the decanter is also slim and interesting. Grosperrin never adds sugar or caramel coloring to their Cognacs.

How to enjoy the Borderies 48 Cognac 

Enjoy this Cognac neat, and witness history as it unfolds, tantalizing your senses.

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.
