Situated along the coast of the Cognac appellation is Bois Ordinaires, the site of the region's original vineyards. Approximately 17,000 hectares are planted in this maritime climate, with soils being free draining and sandy.
Jean Grosperrin, who initially worked as a broker in the region evaluating eaux-de-vie and introducing buyers, has a collection of highly atypical Cognacs including this 18 year old vintage bottling from the Isle d'Oleron, a small island to the far west of the Bois Ordinaires appellation. The appellation has a questionable reputation when it comes to quality Cognac with some describing its output as at best 'mediocre'.
Tasting note: Deep, bright gold ochre colour. First nosings are shy but promising. Ten minutes in the glass reveals toasty, raisin bread notes, a hint of fresh stone fruits and a touch of anise, though the aromatics remain subdued. At this high strength the palate is exceptionally concentrated; Medium dry stone fruit, pepper and cigar box flavours are accompanied by a big, spicy flourish delivering outstanding length. The spirit is warm but well balanced. Aftertaste is firm and drying with a persistent though subtle afterglow of dried fig and spice. Overall, an unquestionably masculine styled spirit that's more brandy like than classically Cognac, though not without real curio value at this unusual ABV. 56.6% Alc./Vol.
