1973 - Petite Champagne - Cognac Grosperrin
Old gold color, almost amber. The nose is marked by gourmet notes of ripe quetsches, Mirabelle plums, spices (cardamon, turmeric, black pepper) and exotic woods (cedar, sandalwood). Around all this, we find the characteristic rancio of old Cognacs close to maturity. On the palate, again this fruity delicacy (ripe plum, prune, cinnamon chocolate) and spiciness.

This vintage Cognac comes from a family who have lived in Cognac for several generations. This Petite Champagne 1973 was part of the estate of the father, who had bequeathed his stocks to his wife and his son, a notary like him. The father had bought this lot in January 1974 from one of his clients, who was then the president of one of the most important Cognac Maisons. This batch therefore comes from the distillery and cellars of a house that is still renowned today. Unfortunately, when the father died, the son and his mother no longer got along and the estate was bogged down for many years, until Grosperrin proposed a solution. This is a very “sentimental” Cognac, which was stored under state control on January 25, 1974 in an old and very humid cellar located on the banks of the Charente, which has since become the Cognac Museum.
