Grosperrin 1970 Grande Champagne 62% 700ml
This vintage Cognac comes from the stocks of a Parisian widow whose husband, who had brilliantly succeeded in the magistracy, was investing in Cognac for tax reasons. It was when the latter died that she learned that she was the owner of several Cognac barrels stored under State control.
Very amber colour. Spicy nose, notes of cloves, peppers, liquorice, bourbon vanilla. The palate is creamy, with tenacious notes of cocoa and vanilla. The notes of tobacco and roasting become intense with the opening. The finish shows a “hidden and very sweet power”, slight acidity (due to the wood) but no astringency.
