Grosperrin N°48 Borderies Cognac
Growth area & soil: Borderies
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.

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.
