Grosperrin Millesime 1989 Cognac is the only one of the Millesime range that's been blended. It's a combination of two 1989 cognacs from the terroir of Petite Champagne: One from St Bonnet de Barbezieux and tho other from Echebrune.
The first provides both smoothness and sweetness, due to the fact that it was aged and stored close to a river. The second adds further aromas and a wonderful balance, thanks to aging and storage in a very dry cellar.
A wonderful cognac - one to take linger over to fully enjoy the tasting experience

Tasting review by Grosperrin:
Light, straw-coloured hue. The nose is delicate, floral, fresh, airy, and light with a hint of citrus. The palate is slightly rough, since the wood has not been fully assimilated. Although its youth is apparent (this spirit is "only" 15 years old), it nevertheless has great delicacy. The finish leaves a slightly sweet trace of vanilla.
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.
