A 1982 Petite Champagne Vintage from the Grosperrin Cognac de Collection
Like the Grande Champagne vintage, it comes from a winemaker who became a trader and wanted to buy and sell special Cognacs selected for their quality alone. The Grosperrin Vintage 1982 Petite Champagne Cognac has a high aromatic intensity due to being matured for nearly 4 decades. The Grosperrin Millésime 1982 Cognac is one of a series of Vintage cognacs produced by what is reputedly the oldest cognac house in existence (with roots that can be traced back to the 17th century).
A complex delight - the aromas and tastes just keep on evolving throughout the tasting experience.
It has been distilled over lees, and is a fascinating bottling due to its unique snapshot of the Petite Champagne. The high chalk content of this terroir makes for fantastic eaux-de-vie.
A simple bottle like the others of the Cognac de Collection, and bottled at 46.3% ABV.
How to serve
Definitely, a Cognac to keep for those special occasions - and when you have time to savor and enjoy what can only be described as a rollercoaster taste experience... enjoy it neat.
