Growth area & soil: Fins Bois
The Grosperrin Millesime 1986 Fins Bois Cognac is one of a great selection of vintage year Cognacs from this independently run house. As its name suggests, this is a pure Fins Bois delight - a terroir of the region that is fast becoming very sought after by many Cognac afficionados.
At 46.8°, it's an overproof Cognac that is versatile and represents great value for money. It can be enjoyed neat, whereby you can savor the powerful roundness that the natural aging has brought about. Or, for a subtle difference in the taste and aromas, drink it over ice. Whichever way you choose, this great old Cognac is a really wonderful addition to any drinks cabinet. It would also make a superb gift for anyone who enjoys good Cognacs.
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.
