This vintage cognac comes from the only auction ever organized by ORECO in 2012. Dense and rich nose, supported by notes of old Balsamic. It seems older than its age, a sign of a long ageing in a barrel “in emptying”, having caused a healthy oxidation.

The red fruit notes bring freshness to this cognac. Mouth is creamy and very balanced, with already rancio.

Astonishing and rare!

Cognac de Collection Jean Grosperrin – Artisanal Vintages - Jean Grosperrin worked as a cognac broker in the Cognac region. A broker in eaux-de-vie plays a very discreet yet strategic role between the producer and the buyer. His job is to evaluate the quality of the eaux-de-vie and to introduce interested parties to each other. His profession takes him to many cellars to estimate the value of different batches, among which there are sometimes some very old cognacs. Practically all vine growers distil their own harvest and they usually conserve, as former generations have done before them, some barrels of cognac in their cellars. These family treasures are very rarely up for sale and the transactions are very confidential. It is these cognacs, sometimes very atypical with strong personalities that Jean and his son Guilhem (since 2004) seek to obtain in all the appellations of Cognac. And digging into documents, family histories allows for description and anecdotes on each cognac which makes great reading. Tasting Notes are precise, to the point, short, not at all the excessive praise and lies. And their selections and vintages are astonishing . Success means, that supplies run out often.
