Grosperrin No. 79 Borderies 53.6% 700ml
This non-vintage Cognac comes from a very small holding in the Borderies, located a few kilometers from Saintes.
Amber colour. Very fine, long. On the nose, a cognac with fine rancios, almost dry, notes of blackcurrant. There is a lot of elegance in this cognac, which is reminiscent of lot N ° 64 Borderies. On the palate, the attack is frank. Medium finish, a little spicy, but not lacking in charm thanks to the floral notes that remain.
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.
