A delicate Bons Bois Vintage Cognac from 1992
Another important counterpart to Jean Grosperrin’s historic Cognac de Collection is the Grosperrin Bons Bois Vintage 1992 Cognac. This vintage Cognac comes from a fruit farm located in Saintonge, and like all of the other Grosperrin Cognacs, it has been inherited from a series of interesting producers around the region. This is a delicate and very accessible Cognac.
Beginning with just 10 hectares of an apple orchard in 1971, this farm now has around 100 hectares of fruit tree - and just a few of vine.
The Bons Bois terroir is made of clay and loam, and is not particularly known for producing great vines. However, if the vine is grown well, the Cognac is distilled well and aged for long enough, the Cognac is balanced and has great power.This Millésime Cognac is a unique expression of the 1992 harvest in the Bons Bois region. It has been aged for 20 years.
Bottled at 51.8% ABV, the decanter is slim with a wooden stopper. Grosperrin never adds sugar or caramel coloring to their Cognacs. It arrives in a simple ash colored wooden box.
How to enjoy
Enjoy this Cognac neat, and witness as history unfolds, tantalizing your senses.
