An excellent vintage Cognac from venerable bottlers, Grosperrin.
This 1983 vintage was producing using grapes grown in the Fins Bois cru. This cru, which surrounds Cognacs heartlands and encompasses the smaller crus of Petite and Grand Champagne, is known for producing intense, powerfully flavoured Cognacs with a slightly maritime edge.
The bottling offers up notes of rich flowers, liquorice, cinnamon spice, vanilla, green grapes, dried fruits, rancio, sweet wine, oak, milk chocolate, prunes, black plums, brown sugar and caramelised citrus fruit.
Bottled at 48.5% ABV, this is a satisfying and intense spirit, presented free from colouring or boisé.
