Petite Champagne 1969 Cognac Grosperrin
This vintage Cognac comes from a family of notaries who have lived in Cognac for several generations. This Petite Champagne 1969 was part of the estate of the father, who had bequeathed its stocks to his wife and son, a notary like himself. The father had bought this lot in April 1970, thinking of reselling it at a better price a few years later, as was the practice at that time by a few well-informed private individuals. Unfortunately, the oil crisis coupled with the end of the Vietnam war meant that Cognac prices collapsed shortly afterwards. When he died, his wife and son were no longer getting along, and the estate was bogged down for several decades until we proposed a solution.
Amber colour. A complex, rather classic Cognac. A late summer nose with notes of very ripe fruit, tapered pears, prune. Smoky touches, burnt notes and Christmas Pudding side (candied grapes, orange peel, nutmeg). On the palate, power and freshness (lime blossom, hawthorn), which allows the full complexity of the wine to be approached serenely. A superb Cognac, for lovers of fine classics au naturel.
