A 1973 Petite Champagne cognac bottled by Jean Grosperrin at 61.6% ABV. This is a big cognac, yet very elegant in style. 
 
Producer's Notes: 
 
This vintage Cognac comes from a family of public notaries who has been located close to the city of Cognac for many generations. This Petite Champagne was part of the inheritance of the father, who had bequeathed his stocks of Cognac to his wife and his son, who was public notary like him. The father has bought this batch on January 1974 to one of his clients, who was at the time the President of one of the most important Cognac Houses. Unfortunately, when the father passed away, his wife and his son were in disagreement and the succession was blocked until we propose a solution. This is a very “sentimental” cognac, stored under State control since the 25th of January 1974, in a very humid cellar located on the bank of the Charente river in the city center of Cognac. This cellar is today the Cognac Museum. The harvest 1973 was abundant (+62% compared to the harvest 1972 in Petite Champagne!) and was qualified of “harvest of the century” at the time.
