Tasting review by Grosperrin:
Old gold color. Decadant nose, striking the nose with the very best of what a Grande Champagne cognac can offer. Tantalizes with hawthorn and bright notes of oak and licorice. Then currants, candied apricot. In the mouth the attack is fresh and tasty, soon giving way to nectar and and explosion of spices. A satisfyingly long finish.
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.
