Grosperrin 1992 Bons Bois Cognac 51.5% 350ml
Tasting Notes: Golden colour. On the nose, sweet aromas of rum baba, currants and orange peels. You have to let the glass air out to perceive more airy and vegetal notes, such as grapes and cloves. Beautiful puffs of salty air that make you salivate. In the mouth, a power contained in the attack. Thanks to a very slow reduction, the mouth became oily, the reduction does not feel.
Cognac de Collection Jean Grosperrin – 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.
