This cognac is made from Folle Blanche, Colombard and Ugni Blanc grapes. It comes from the 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 (10%) vintages, from a single Grande Champagne property.
In general, the cognac is made from a single grape variety, Ugni Blanc (the majority at nearly 98%). The Grosperrin family was willing to produce a blend, and they remembered how the « bouilleurs de crus » (distillers) did in the past, when their plots were rich in numerous grape varieties, with different maturities, and they distilled with 3, 5 or 7 hectolitre stills. Contrary to today's fashion, mono-varieties did not exist! They had to harvest and vinify according to the maturities, and start the "brouillis" according to their fermentations, by barrels. Finally, blend the "brouillis" (of grape varieties), at 28-30% with the right temperatures.
Naturally, the percentage of grape varieties changes every year. The resulting eau-de-vie is then aged in barrels in their cellars, vintage after vintage, before the blend of the vintages themselves.
