An exceptional Petite Champagne Cognac, bottled by Grosperrin.
This is a traditionally made Cognac, which has been distilled on lees, and uses grapes grown exclusively in the Petite Champagne cru. The spirit has been aged for a minimum of 33 years in oak casks.
This is a Cognac with a fascinating history. The lot came from a charity auction, and originally was produced by a winegrower called André Bertandeau. Berandeau was a survivor of the concentration camps, and bequeathed his plentiful old stocks of Cognac to the charities. Throughout his life, he continued to argue against the horrors of war and extremism.
The spirit itself delivers notes of marmalade on toast, plums, polished wood, candied tropical fruit, cherries, toffee, cedarwood, apples, grapes, vanilla, fresh flowers and oak.
Extremely complex and delicious – a typical stellar Grosperrin pick.
