Omschrijving

Prunier 1989 Grand Champagne Cognac: a Rich and Robust Limited Edition

The Prunier Vintage 1989 Grande Champagne Cognac is simply Premier Cru perfection. Harvested in the sunniest year of the decade, 1989 saw a particularly fruitful harvest, with the eaux-de-vie distilled from these grapes being left to mature in old oak casks for over 20 years at Maison Prunier before being bottled in 2011. 

A limited edition of only 240 bottles, this rare Cognac from arguably the most reputable region - Grande Champagne - has gained momentum and popularity amongst connoisseurs thanks to its full body, finesse and complex character.

Harvested from a vineyard close to Segonzac on the Western side of Grande Champagne, the distilled and undisturbed eaux-de-vie have developed a distinct character with smoky, oaky and nutty notes on both nose and palate. 

The legal requirements to receive a vintage status are relatively strict and difficult to achieve for Cognac producers. The seal of a single year demijohn must only be broken by a sworn representative before being bottled, and therefore none of the Cognac stored inside can be touched, tasted or removed throughout the aging process. Thanks to this natural method of allowing the Cognac to fully express itself, untouched by human hands for two decades, the 1989 Vintage Grande Champagne has a higher ABV of 46.9% and is therefore considered a natural cask strength Cognac.

Presentation of the Bottle

Prunier vintage bottles are inspired by a design from the 19th century developed by the ancestors of current manager Claude Burnez. Each bottle is blown semi-manually by French artisans using traditional methods and therefore each bottle is completely unique with its bubbles trapped inside. 

Each bottle is sealed with wax, replicating the strict process of sealing the demijohns to protect and prove the Cognac's vintage status. The 1989 Vintage Grande Champagne has a deep blue wax seal with off-white, green and gold detailing on the body of the bottle. Each of the 240 limited editions has been individually numbered on the label. 

The bottle comes with a stunning wooden box adorned with the Maison Prunier logo for display, storage or gifting purposes.

How to Enjoy Prunier 1989 Vintage

As with many vintage Cognacs like this, it’s best to enjoy it neat, perhaps with friends or loved ones to celebrate a particular anniversary or birthday from this year. 

Leave the Cognac for a few minutes once it’s poured into a traditional tulip glass, and make sure to swirl the glass to increase aeration in order to appreciate its aromas and enjoy the plethora of flavors on the palate.

If you feel this vintage may be a little strong for your tastes, you're welcome to add a few drops of water. Its smoky and woody notes will be lengthened, making it a delightful digestif, especially when enjoyed alongside a cigar or an espresso.

A great cognac with a great cigar

This cognac totally enhances the cigar experience. The only way to truly enjoy this and bring out the fruit flavors is to add some really great chocolates along with the fine cigar.
Oranges somehow come bursting out in the chocolate.


Over Prunier Cognac

Cognac Prunier is een traditioneel familiebedrijf met kelders in het hart van de stad Cognac. Het huis is niet in het bezit van eigen wijngaarden, maar koopt de eaux-de-vie rechtstreeks van de wijnbouwers en distilleerders en voert vervolgens het rijpingsproces in eigen kelders uit.
