History of Cognac Jean Grosperrin

Jean Grosperrin had worked in the wine industry for many years – firstly as a distiller in the early 1980’s in the North of France (Lorraine), then as distiller in Cognac, and finally as a broker from 1991. He moved into the position of wholesale in 1994, and in 1999 that he started to bottle his own casks. This meant that he not only had created some valuable relationships with winegrowers in Cognac, but he also became well known by the many merchants who sold the finished products.

It was during these dealings that he became aware of quite how many rare and prized cognacs were being stored in the many cellars of the Charente. A few barrels of old cognacs tend to be handed down over the generations, meaning that there truly were some treasures to be discovered that harked back to the days before modern technology changed wine production to what we know today.

Using his many contacts in the business, this meant that Jean had a privileged pathway into being able to purchase some of the oldest and most sought after eaux-de-vies that had been produced over the decades. Jean had to stop working in 2003 due to health reasons.

Grosperrin Cognac Today

Today the house is still very much a family affair, being run by Guilhem Grosperrin since 2004. The Grosperrin cognacs produced are strictly controlled, with all dates and vintages being fully traceable through a number of methods. These include all the cognacs being stored under state control in ORECO warehouses, bottling only taking place in the presence of a bailiff, both the label and cork bearing proven and traceable dates and a bailiff certificate that seals the stopper on the bottle.

News, Products and Prices

The cognacs produced by Grosperrin range in price depending on age. For example, a bottle of Grosperrin 1973 Petite Champagne can be purchased for around €350. However, a Grosperrin 1991 Bois Ordinaires might be bought for less than €120.
