Description

Grosperrin Lot N°70 Borderies

A comforting and distinguished Cognac, Grosperrin Lot N°70 Borderies is a rare Cognac produced by a small winemaker from the town of Burie, on the Borderies terroir. This winegrower, now retired, had kept this very small batch in memory of his debut. This barrel had been stored with care and precaution in the small cellar of the Grosperrin property undergoing many years of careful ageing. Given the very small quantity, it proved practically difficult to recover the barrel's contents, so members of the Grosperrin team had to transfer its contents (under the watchful eye of the winemaker) to two barrels that had once contained very old Cognacs, in our cellar in Saintes. The Cognac is now offered exactly as the years have left it.

The house of Grosperrin collaborates with more than 150 local Cognac businesses spread across all six of the Cognac growing areas. In total, Grosperrin has contact with almost 4,300 farms which make up the rich and diverse grapes of the Cognac region. With years of buying and selling expertise under its belt, the house of Grosperrin sources the finest eaux-de-vie the region has to offer. This is done all in the hope of achieving their ultimate ambition of achieving the finest expressions of the terroir.

Presentation of the bottle

Displayed in a contemporary decanter, the presentation of this Cognac offers a touch of tradition through the bottle's heavy base and long slim neck. Stamped with the Grosperrin brand label, the bottle illustrates the vigorous detail that has gone into producing such a rare and special Cognac. The glimmering amber color of the eau-de-vie inside, alongside the bottle’s elegant form, allows this Cognac to sit beautifully as a table centerpiece or amongst others in the drinks cabinet.

How to enjoy

A delightfully well-aged Cognac like this one merits your utmost attention during the tasting. Enjoy neat at room temperature to appreciate the Cognac in its entirety. To allow the aromas to develop even further, try adding a drop of mineral water or a couple of ice cubes to the glass.

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.
