Eye: Old gold color

Nose: A characteristic Fins Bois Cognac with slightly sweet, fruity notes of mango, blackberry, cooked pineapple. There is a certain length and a very nice balance to this aromatic ensemble, that tempt you to take the first sip.

Palate: On the attack, the Cognac is supple, almost discreet, but it very quickly takes on a fuller character. The palate is as full as the nose, the fruitiness is prolonged by spicy notes emblematic of the 31 years the eaux-de-vie spent aging in the casks.

Description

Grosperrin Vintage 1989 Fins Bois Cognac

Grosperrin Vintage 1989 Fins Bois Cognac comes from a vineyard located in Brie-sous-Matha, a village in the heart of one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Saintonge wine region, on clay-limestone soils. Made up of eaux-de-vie of the Fins Bois cru, the harvests from the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s were reserved due to the economic crisis that hit the region hard from 1992.

Well worth the wait, this 31-year-old vintage offering is an irresistible Cognac with a velvety texture and tempting aromatics that quickly entice the senses to enjoy sip after sip. It is the perfect gift choice for someone who holds sentimental value to the year 1989 and enjoys unique vintage Cognacs of pure unrivalled quality.

The house of Grosperrin collaborates with more than 150 local Cognac businesses spread across all six of the Cognac growing areas. In total, Grosperrin has contact with almost 4,300 farms which make up the rich and diverse grapes of the Cognac region. With years of buying and selling expertise under its belt, the house of Grosperrin sources the finest eaux-de-vie the region has to offer. This is done all in the hope of achieving their ultimate ambition of achieving the finest expressions of the terroir.

Presentation of the bottle

Displayed in a contemporary decanter, the presentation of Grosperrin Vintage 1989 Fins Bois Cognac offers a touch of tradition through the bottle's heavy base and long slim neck. Stamped with the Grosperrin brand label, the bottle illustrates the vigorous detail that has gone into producing such a rare and special Cognac. The glimmering golden color of the eaux-de-vie inside, alongside the bottle’s elegant form, allows this Cognac to sit beautifully as a table centerpiece or amongst others in the drinks cabinet.

How to enjoy

A rare well-aged Cognac like this one deserves your utmost attention during the tasting. Enjoy neat at room temperature to appreciate the Cognac in its entirety. To allow the aromas to develop even further, try adding a drop of mineral water or a couple of ice cubes to the glass.

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.
