Growth area & soil: Petite Champagne
Grosperrin Millesime 1969 Cognac is a delightful, vintage cognac from this lesser known, independent house produced from grapes grown in the Petite Champagne terroir. But just because the name Grosperrin might be new to you, don't think that this isn't a cognac produced with a wealth of knowledge, passion, and expertise.
Grosperrin specialize in creating the finest of old cognacs, and this Petite Champagne delight from the year 1969 is a wonderful example. Deep mahogany in color, this is a cognac that takes the taster on a complex journey that tantalizes the senses. Definitely one for the connoisseurs out there...
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.
