Grosperrin N°64 Borderies Cognac (Lot N°843)
A magnificent single lot Cognac from the Borderies Cru, bottled by Grosperrin.
Like most Grosperrin Cognacs, this lot was first produced by a small family estate, before being purchased by the bottler.
Groperrin describes the lot as “very old cognac” that “was purchased from the widow of a man whose father moved to Burie in 1930, on one of the best hillsides in the Borderies.”
“This lot had been carefully preserved by his family in memory of a bygone era. it is an extremely rare lot that was long watched over by the broker who offered it to us.”
The spirit itself is a typically floral Borderies Cognac, with notes of roses and violets, joined by peppery spice, cinnamon and powdered cloves. With time, flavours of sandalwood, liquorice, old oak, toffee, oily nuts, vanilla and tangy white grapes take hold.
Full bodied at 52.1% ABV.
