The Grosperrin Folle Blanche Grande Champagne Cognac is made up of some wonderful vintage harvests of the premier cru of Cognac - and it truly highlights all the best attributes of the Folle Blanche grape. The exact quanities of the various harvests that have gone into making the blend are as follows 2009 (10%), 2010 (40%), and 2011 (50%).
The result is a truly aromatic and flavorsome Cognac - and indeed, one that offers excellent value for money. At 43° it's slightly overproof, making it a really versatile Cognac. Enjoy in neat as a digestif. Or perhaps on the rocks for some subtle aroma and flavor changes. And naturally, it makes a wonderful addition to your favorite cocktail.

Tasting review by Grosperrin:
Nose: Lively aromas of grape, butter, honey & linden; Some sweet notes: iris, daffodil, jasmine appear upon aeration of the glass. The stronger notes of passion fruit & pineapple follow.
Palate: Soft frank notes of vine flower, apple, spices. Beautifully fresh.
Finish: Gourmet and balanced; floral notes explode.
This relatively new, independent cognac house was created in 1992 and the brand named after its founder. The actual name of the cognac house is La Gabare and it is one of the few independent houses left in the region of Cognac. A family run firm, La Gabare is all about creating and marketing the finest of old cognacs. They do this under two brand names – Cognac de Collection Jean Grosperrin and Le Roch.
