A Single Fins Bois Cognac from the Grosperrin Cognac de Collection
The Grosperrin N°58 Fins Bois Cognac is a very rare Cognac that was acquired after the death of the winegrower. Jean Grosperrin bought this Cognac from his son in 1999, and the cask was then stored in the Grosperrin cellars on the banks of the Charente River.
Due to its very high quality, it was isolated among the others, and in 2017, it was bottled and placed in the exclusive Cognac de Collection.
Cognac from the Fin Bois tends to age quicker than that from other terroirs, and comprises over 37,000 hectares of soil in total, making it the largest of them all. The bouquet is known for its subtle and flowery quality, and the strong aromas are influenced slightly by the maritime climate.
Grosperrin believes that the quality of a Cognac is directly related to the quality of the individual producing and maturing it. By visiting each winegrower and vineyard, hearing the story of the distillery and maturing techniques, he understands the precious nature of a Cognac before even tasting it. Each one of the Cognacs that Grosperrin select and age for the Collection tells its own story - one of older Cognac making techniques, without technology or guaranteed abundant harvests.
A simple bottle like the others of the Cognac de Collection, and bottled at 42.2% ABV.

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.
