18 ans Île d'Oléron - Bois Ordinaire - Cognac Grosperrin
On the nose, more tertiary notes than its age would suggest, with a beautiful aromatic burst: roasted pineapple, salted butter caramel, heated oak, hot peach picked from the tree, saffron. The palate is rich, round and well balanced. The luscious and saline profile of this cognac is expressed through grapes macerated in rum, ripe fruits, and fresher and more pastry notes. A very nice tension behind the fruity notes, proof that this terroir of Oléron Island is not only made of sand!

A rare cognac over 18 years old from the Oléron Island, produced on a sandy soil, exposed to the Atlantic Ocean, which benefits from the influence of the Golf Stream and from almost Mediterranean sunshine. This cognac comes from a very small property located in Saint-Pierre-d'Oléron, whose viticultor is now retired. His last harvest was in 2007, and he still has 3 previous harvests left. Each year, by tacit contract, the cognacs Grosperrin buys him a vintage, in order to continue the aging in their cellars, where a slight reduction is carried out before putting the spirit in barrels, and later in bottles.
