Grosperrin Millesime 1968 Cognac is a wonderful vintage 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.

Tasting review by Grosperrin:
Very intense aromas and taste. Distilled with fine lees. The wood is well balanced. Fruity aromas are dominant, with traces of almond and apricot. Full and pleasantly non-aggressive palate, with a taste of liquorice and mushroom
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.
