A Fins Bois cognac from the house of Jean Grosperrin. The majority of the content in this bottle was distilled in 1967. Some younger cognac was added to bring the ABV back over 40%. Producer’s Description:This cognac is from a negociant who has important stocks made up of the preceding generations. It was stored for a few years under state control before being returned to the very old warehouses of this negociant. The trace of this cognac in the stock isn’t perfect throughout the whole ageing process, that is why it cannot be sold as a vintage cognac. However it was prepared in the same condition: natural and non-blended since we bought it. It was bottled at its natural degree, a truly “brut de fût” Cognac.Nice mahogany colour. Expressive, mushroom and mocha nose. Powerful and oily on the palate, notes of wood, liquorice. Generous and rich finish, slightly peppery.
