Description :

Each bottle of La Gabare's Cognac de Collection bearing a vintage or age also carries a guarantee on the cork certifying that bottling of that particular cognac took place in the presence of a bailiff. All of cognacs have been stored under state control in Oreco warehouses from the time of purchase until bottling

Cognacs Grosperrin  

La Gabare’s Cognac de Collection begun with very modest means but with sincere aspirations. The collection emerged from the ruins of the cognac industry as it switched from the hands of family trading houses to the iron rule of wine and spirits multinationals. The entire region and many different professions were forced to adapt to survive. The first to be affected were the winegrowers who, in order to live and do business with the industry’s new masters, had to accept very strict specifications that were often inversely proportionate to the payment they received.

Those winegrowers or intermediaries that were refused access to this new economic order, either because their properties were too small or because there was no place for them in this new structure, were forced to change the way they worked before it was too late. They were in danger of losing all their assets and disappearing altogether. The idea of La Gabare’s Cognac de Collection range was born as a result of this pressing need for change.

Jean Grosperrin : "Over the years, working as a broker, I have developed a very special and close relationship with my clients. In addition, I have been actively helped in my search by a sworn broker and colleague of mine who is systematically contacted to evaluate inheritances and who has excellent contacts with many old Cognac families. This allows me to know when a family intends to sell or divide up its inheritance.

At such times, I am often presented with samples of very old cognacs. We only select cognacs aged in casks that have not been systematically topped up over time as the quantity of liquid diminished through evaporation. 

I also require official paperwork or archives tracing the product from the time of distillation. I then taste the cognac, first at full strength and then with water, and if satisfied - i.e. if the aromas and ageing of the cognac are of real interest - then the cognac is carbon-dated by the French National Scientific Research Institute to confirm the age indicated. Only if these three conditions are fulfilled is the new cognac permitted to enter our own cellars.


Another source for our Collection are the state-controlled warehouses where I am occasionally able to obtain cognac that has been stored there since its distillation. However, this is mostly young cognac distilled"

Notes de dégustation

Comme le précédent, nous avons acheté ce lot composé de plusieurs fûts de la même origine à une veuve parisienne dont le mari, qui avait réussi brillamment dans la magistrature, investissait dans du Cognac pour des raisons fiscales. C’est au décès de ce dernier qu’elle a apprit qu’elle était propriétaire de plusieurs fûts de 1970 qui étaient stockés sous contrôle d’Etat (O.R.E.C.O) depuis la distillation. Ce lot a vieilli plusieurs décennies dans un chai très ancien sur terre battue, et son vieillissement s’est toujours poursuivi dans les fûts de départ qui étaient, selon toute évidence, des barriques de « première eau-de-vie », ce qui lui a conféré des arômes de cacao et de vanille puissants. La récolte 1970 fut excellente en termes de volume et à ce titre on la désigne parfois comme la première récolte « moderne » obtenue à Cognac (une forte quantité couplée à une bonne qualité sanitaire au regard des préceptes de la viticulture « moderne »).

Robe foncée, très ambrée. Nez très épicé, notes de clous de girofle, poivres, réglisse, vanille bourbon. La bouche est onctueuse, notes tenaces de cacao, vanille. Les notes de tabac et de torréfaction deviennent intenses avec l’ouverture. En finale, puissance dissimulée et toute en douceur, légère acidité (du fait du bois) mais aucune astringence. Pour les amateurs de Cognacs impressionnants, voir démonstratifs. Ce qui n’enlève rien { la finesse que l’on peut y trouver.
