Almost 4,300 farms, some of them very small, make up the rich and infinitely diverse fabric of the Cognac region. Individually, no one cru is better than the other. Grosperrin Cognac works with over 150 owners in all six crus – or growing areas – of the appellation. Each cognac selected is the result of the perfect interplay of soil, climate and the men and women and their traditions. One of Grosperrin’s ultimate ambitions is to achieve the perfect expression of this terroir. The soil composition influences the humidity content and the quality of the wines. Because of their constant moderate humidity, the slopes of the Bons Bois or Bois Ordinaires produce some remarkable cognacs.
Golden robe with gold reflections. Tight and mineral nose, notes of fresh fruit, mirabelle plum in syrup, apricot. Then quickly, more pregnant and more vegetal notes, then soft spices. The palate is both lively and supple, although the reduction is still noticeable on this first bottling. Clean finish.
