A Petite Champagne Vintage from 1973 - part of the esteemed Cognac de Collection
Featured as one of the exclusive Cognac de Collection curated by Grosperrin, the Grosperrin 1973 Petite Champagne Vintage comes from a family of notaries who have settled in Cognac for several generations. Today, Grosperrin are dedicated to the selection and the ageing of old cognacs and their distribution.
The 1973 Vintage Cognac from the Petite Champagne is a testament to the cru, which is renowned for taking 20-30 years to age fully. This cognac from 1973 aged for more than 45 years in casks. It is characterized by a maritime climate and chalky soil.

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.
