Growth area & soil: Fins Bois
Grosperrin N°68 Cognac is a wonderful Cognac from one of the truly few independent houses that remain. This is an interesting cognac, and one that will certainly be a talking point from the moment you produce it from your drinks cabinet.
Created solely from grapes grown in the Bons Bois terroir, this is a fine cognac that was bottled exactly at the point when it began to reach maturity. Stored and aged in the ORECO warehouses in barbexieux in a small, damp cellar, this is a cognac that one should definitely linger, enjoy, and lose oneself in its complexity.
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.
