Grosperrin Millesime 1990 Cognac
Rustic, with its own unique charm, the Grosperrin Millesime 1990 Cognac is a beautifully balanced choice with an enticing subtlety. Crafted with the 1990 harvest from the Fins Bois terroir of the Cognac region, it originates from the delightful town of Bonneville, located between Rouillac and Aigre. A part of a range of Grosperrin vintage cognacs, it is a charming selection to enjoy.
Making a rare appearance on the market, only small quantities of these invaluable liquids are available. Thanks to Jean and his son Guilhem Grosperrin’s valid contribution to seeking atypical Cognac’s with a strong personality, the Grosperrin house holds the name of rare and excellent choices. A relatively new formation, each Cognac embodies tradition and modern elegance expertly. Displaying that balance beautifully, the Millesime 1990 is a Cognac of character and contemporary chic.

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.
