Description

Grosperrin Trésor N°24 Grande Champagne Cognac

It was the widow of a former broker, now deceased, who sold Jean these very old Grande Champagne. Her husband, who was still in business some thirty years ago, had a reputation for tenacity. In this way, he had acquired stocks of cognacs that he bought in his village and the surrounding area and then sold on to merchants. His passion was for old Cognacs, which he accumulated, barrel after barrel, like treasures. He didn't even allow his wife, a schoolteacher, or his children, young and grown, to enter this sanctuary, to which he jealously guarded the key.

It was only in the final stage of his life, destroyed by illness, when his son had to take charge, that those closest to him discovered what he had accumulated over so many years. In a wine storehouse that had once been a barn which he had had thick metal doors fitted, were around fifteen barrels and a few casks. In these barrels, each covered with a black plastic tarpaulin to limit the costly "angels' share" were batches of very old Cognacs from Grande Champagne Cognacs. Each barrel was inscribed with the product's the origin of the product, the quantity purchased, the degree, the volume and the year of harvest. But no archives!

It was at this point that his wife was able to profit from the brandy trade.

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.
