Prunier Vintage 1970 Petite Champagne Cognac
Groeigebied (Cru) & bodem: Petite Champagne
An Exceptionally Aromatic Vintage Cognac from the 1970 Petite Champagne Harvest
In a celebration of a single harvest of 1970, Maison Prunier’s expert cellar master has selected an exceptional Cognac, embodying all the finesse that the Petite Champagne is famed for. Petite Champagne Cognacs are long-maturing and this Cognac is almost 50 years old, allowing for ample aging to bring forth unique tastes and aromas.
This Cognac forms part of Maison Prunier’s prestigious Vintage collection of limited edition cognacs. With just a few hundred bottles per lot in existence, this would make an excellent gift to mark a special date. In keeping with Charentais tradition, where locals would drink Cognac directly from the cellars, each of these Millésomes is bottled at cask strength, making for a truly authentic tasting experience. The dampness of the house’s cellars, allegedly attributed to the underground river that runs beneath them, are the perfect conditions for aging and give strength to this Cognac.
As we know, when it comes to Cognac production, it’s all about the terroir. Thanks to the compact, chalk-rich soil of the Petite Champagne, the eaux-de-vie here are light and floral and loved for their length. The maritime climate, with its optimal sun exposure also contributes to the quality of the grapes.
Although Cognac is typically made by blending a selection of eaux-de-vie, a Vintage places its trust in the natural order of things: relying solely on the weather, the quality of the soil, and the time spent aging in French oak barrels. Minimal intervention required.
Presentation of the bottle

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.
