A Fins Bois Cognac de Collection aged for at least 36 years
Another part of Grosperrin’s historic Cognac de Collection is the Grosperrin Fins Bois No. 68 Cognac. Although not a Vintage Cognac, it is like the Number 71 Cognac which has been aged for at least 36 years in old oak casks. Produced on the chalky hills of Vars at around 100 meters altitude (which is rare to find in the Cognac region, where the average altitude is 20 meters), this batch consists of several old Cognac barrels.
In 1982, the widow of the producer inherited the Cognacs and ceased operating in the business after his death. She left the precious eaux-de-vie to his children in 2017, and it was then that the Grosperrin House bought the casks. 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 Fins Bois cru is the largest of the Cognac terroirs, covering 37,000 hectares. Their eaux-de-vie are renowned for producing round and supple Cognacs that age quickly, with a bouquet of pressed grapes.
