Eye: Deep amber with ruby reflections. 

Nose: On the nose, it's immediately rich and deep. Magnificent wood combines with the aromas of leather and tobacco. Beautiful distinction and complexity.

Palate: The first impression is mellowness, complemented by toasted walnuts and beeswax. Beautifully long and full finish.

Description

Prunier Grande Champagne Extra Cognac, a Family Reserve for the Ages

The Prunier Grande Champagne Extra Cognac is one of the flagship products of this traditional Cognac house. It combines four different eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne, each of them aged for over 40 years in mild, humid conditions. Cellar Master Stephane Burnez simply watches over these casks without interference, explaining that “nature will do the rest”. All the eaux-de-vie in the blend come from the family ‘library’, making them exceptionally rare. 

The idea behind this extra special release is for the Burnez family to share with you the type of Cognac they traditionally drink, and to express their true passion, love, and dedication to the art that is Cognac making. 

Experts in fine vintages, Prunier specialize in buying eaux-de-vie directly from winegrowers and distillers to age in their own cellars by the Charente - allowing them to select only the most exceptional vintages. This ancient Maison dates back to 1665, perfectly located in a quaint medieval house in the centre of Cognac. In the early 20th Century, the Prunier family left no descendants when Alphonse Prunier died - it was his widow who passed the deeds to her nephew Jean Burnez, allowing them to continue as a family company and maintain their strong traditions. 

Presentation of the Bottle

The Prunier Grande Champagne Extra Cognac comes in a stylish, weighty decanter with a squared-off neck, finished off with a large chrome stopper to match the silver script which adorns the front of the bottle. The copper-red presentation box perfectly highlights the deep color of this finely aged Cognac. 

Recommended Serve

Rare Grande Champagne blends like this deserve attention: pour gently into a tulip glass and let it rest for 30 seconds before taking a sip. To allow the aromas to open up further, a small dash of mineral water could be added.
