Young gold robe. On the nose the aromas of dried grapefruit, apricot and sun matured peach, zest of crystallized orange, fill the glass. We smell the relative youngness of this cognac (twenty years in barrel), however largely balanced in the nose by its complexity and kind of delicacy. In the mouth the attack is straight, and its fawning aromas are confirming themselves. A lot of elegance, beautiful mineralitywhich express for the most on final (wet limestone). The last reduction, about 12 months ago, opened the aromas of this cognac, while keeping its nice balance at the same time.

Cognac de Collection Jean Grosperrin â Artisanal Vintages - Jean Grosperrin worked as a cognac broker in the Cognac region. A broker in eaux-de-vie plays a very discreet yet strategic role between the producer and the buyer. His job is to evaluate the quality of the eaux-de-vie and to introduce interested parties to each other. His profession takes him to many cellars to estimate the value of different batches, among which there are sometimes some very old cognacs. Practically all vine growers distil their own harvest and they usually conserve, as former generations have done before them, some barrels of cognac in their cellars. These family treasures are very rarely up for sale and the transactions are very confidential. It is these cognacs, sometimes very atypical with strong personalities that Jean and his son Guilhem (since 2004) seek to obtain in all the appellations of Cognac. And digging into documents, family histories allows for description and anecdotes on each cognac which makes great reading. Tasting Notes are precise, to the point, short, not at all the excessive praise and lies. And their selections and vintages are astonishing . Success means, that supplies run out often.
