Grosperrin N°89 Bois Ordinaire Cognac
Grosperrin N°89 Bois Ordinaire Cognac is the only one of the Millesime range that's been blended. A combination of two cognacs from the terroir of Bois Ordinaire, it is composed of a beautifully balanced blend. The first Cognac offers both smoothness and sweetness due to the fact it was aged and stored close to a river. The second offers a wonderful balance thanks to ageing and storage taking place in a very dry cellar. A blend that embodies harmony spectacularly.
Its expert blending process can be attributed to its origins from a house that boasts a dedication to the selection and lélevage of old Cognac’s. Thanks to the objective of producing Cognac’s with an exceptional heritage, each creation is blended and stored with the finest elegance. N°89 Bois Ordinaire is a sophisticated showcase of all that this fine artisan house embodies.

How to enjoy

Not a Bon Bois but a great champagne.
I can not judge the Bon Bois that I ordered because they send me a Petite Champagne Grosperrin instead. No problem, we all make mistakes and it was rightfully corrected by Cognac Expert.

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.
