Growth area & soil: Petite Champagne
The Grosperrin Millesime 1974 Petite Champagne Cognac is one that offers an amazing oppurtunity to own and taste a Cognac that's well over 40 years old. From the vintage year of 1974, this Petite Champagne Cognac has been allowed to naturally age and has ended up a powerful 46.8° - yet is balanced and well-rounded.
This is a Cognac that can be enjoyed in many different ways. Of course, the traditional way of drinking - neat, and allowed to slightly warm in the hand, is essentially satisfying. But for the more adventurous, try dropping in a few blocks of ice to subtly change the taste experience. A great addition to any Cognac collection, or would make a well-received gift for the Cognac connoisseur.
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.
