1989 Fins Bois Cognac Grosperrin
This cognac comes from a vineyard located in Brie-sous-Matha, a village in the heart of one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Saintonge wine region, on clay-limestone soils.
These harvests from the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s were kept because of the economic crisis that hit our region hard from 1992.
Old gold colour.
On the nose, it is a characteristic Fins Bois cognac with slightly sweet, fruity notes (mango, blackberry, cooked pineapple), supported by a pleasant salinity, testifying to a terroir that is more mineral than clayey. There is a certain length and a very nice balance to this aromatic ensemble, which makes you want to put it in your mouth.
On the attack, this cognac is supple, almost discreet, but very quickly takes on a fuller character. The palate is as greedy as the nose, the fruitiness is prolonged by spicy notes that mark the 31 years of ageing in barrels.
The finish is velvety, very perfumed, and makes you want to have another drink.
An accessible cognac for lovers of traditional Fins Bois.
