Eye: Old golden robe, practically amber.

Nose: Gourmet notes of ripe prune, mirabelle plums, spices such as turmeric, cardamom and black pepper, and exotic woods such as warm cedar and sandalwood. The rancio of the old Cognac envelops these aromas beautifully.

Palate: A fruit medley of ripe plum, prune, and chocolate with cinnamon, melds with spices of nutmeg and tobacco.

Description

Grosperrin Cognac de Collection Vintage from 1973 Petite Champagne

Forming part of the legendary Cognac de Collection, the Grosperrin Vintage 1973 Petite Champagne Brut de Fût Cognac is an ode to the art of barrel aging. This very old Millésime Cognac stands out for its impeccable balance, and like many of the Grosperrin Cognacs, it comes from a family of notaries who has been based in the town of Cognac for several generations. The Petite Champagne is celebrated for its very fine eaux-de-vie, which is typically a result of the high chalk content, maritime climate, and sun-drenched hills.

Grosperrin never adds color, sugar nor caramel to adjust the flavoring - making their Cognacs easier to drink.

Jean Grosperrin believes that the quality of a Cognac is directly related to the quality of the individual producing and maturing it. By visiting each winegrower and vineyard, hearing the story of the distillery and maturing techniques, he understands the precious nature of a Cognac before even tasting it. Each one of the Cognacs that he selects for the Collection tells its own story - one of older Cognac making techniques, without technology or guaranteed abundant harvests.

Presentation

Arriving in a slim, sleek decanter like the rest of the Cognac de Collection, this Cognac is bottled at 60.3% ABV.

How to enjoy

Enjoy this fine Vintage neat.

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.
