A delicious Cognac bottled by Grosperrin, from the smallest cru in the region, Borderies.
The spirit was originally produced by a small estate in the Borderies region. Although tiny, the owner is well known in the industry for being a little larger than life. As he did not rely upon winemaking as a source of income, he was able to build up an extremely high quality reserves of stock. He has since retired, but his knowledge is recognised and valued across the industry.
This mysterious owner very rarely parts with his eaux-de-vie. Nevertheless, Grosperrin were able to get old of some, and this cask was considered amongst the finest the producer had in his cellar – a perfect example of his work.
Distillation was carried about by a distillery owned by a large Cognac house, and then aged in barrels produced by the Taransaud cooperage, also preferred by the Grosperrin company themselves.
A classic Borderies Cognac, this spirit offers up notes of violets and irises, followed by candied apricots, some flinty mineral notes, vanilla, dried fruits, caramel, old oak, milk chocolate, cherry, raspberry, dark plums and creamy honey.
Bottled at a generous 57.3% ABV, this is a strong assertive dram that is packed with flavour.
