Lot 90 Île d'Oléron - Bois Ordinaire - Cognac Grosperrin
Old gold robe, amber reflections. On the nose, we are seized by the salinity. The “wild coast” side, sunny beach, soft spices, asserts itself without extravagance or fantasy. It is a Cognac that provides a certain pleasure by its "accessible", luscious and unexpected profile. On the palate, it is a soft cognac, with a velvety texture, which is explained by a long aging in a very small humid cellar located on the Island of Oléron, not far from the ocean. An iodized and balanced finish that makes you salivate. Pretty and comforting.

A very rare aged cognac from the Île d'Oléron. These old cognacs are about 30 times rarer than an old Grande Champagne (if we refer to the stocks available throughout the appellation). This sandy terroir, exposed to the Atlantic Ocean, benefits from the influence of the Golf Stream and from almost Mediterranean sunshine. There are plants that are not very present on the coast, such as mimosa and tamarisk, giving it the nickname of "the island of herbs". This cognac comes from a very small property located in Saint-Pierre-d'Oléron, whose viticultor is now retired. An extremely rare batch purchased by Grosperrin and bottled in its cellars.
