TASTING NOTES

Eye: A brilliant, brassy gold.

Nose: The nose is precise and lengthy, with a gorgeous roundness and naturally sweet quality. Experience an initial attack of licorice, with woody scents emerging from the very fine tannins. Notes of ripe citrus such as orange and grapefruit are joined by a touch of candied apricot and spices.

Palate: The initial attack on the palate is powerful and supple, followed by an incredible lightness and finesse. In addition to the aromas on the nose, delicious notes of fresh almond and pistachio emerge. This Cognac has a nice length on the palate, which is supported by delicate tannins.

ABV: 42.5 %

Growth Area: Fins Bois

Bottle size: 70 cl

Please note that we will collect orders over the next two weeks, and in the meantime Stéphane and his daughter Alice will begin bottling. Shipping will begin straight after.

Little by little, we are all adapting to a slower pace of life. And in the Cognac region, beautiful things often emerge from the quieter moments. Made to be enjoyed at home, L’ESSENTIEL is an exceedingly old Fins Bois Cognac from Cognac Prunier, and it is available exclusively at Cognac Expert.

Let’s take this time to ralentir, réfléchir, réunir—slow down, reflect and reconnect with those closest to us. While time appears to stand still, the creators at Cognac Prunier have been carefully selecting a very old demi-john to present to the world.

After all, there are many things to learn from the delicate art of Cognac. Patience is everything, and intuition is a cellar master’s finest skill.

For L’ESSENTIEL, cellarmaster Stéphane Brunez and assistant Olivier Bonnet have bottled a never-seen-before Cognac aged for over 50 years in oak casks. This very old Cognac has been reduced naturally, with no additions—not even water. Made with grapes harvested in the Fins Bois more than half a century ago, each sip transcends time and space.

Family-run Cognac Prunier are masters of their craft. They know exactly when a Cognac has reached full aromatic potential—and appreciate the subtleties of a particular terroir. The Fins Bois is characterized by a diverse range of soils, however L’ESSENTIEL comes from a predominantly limestone soil. Expect fruity, floral aromas that are both smooth, yet incredibly intense.

Stéphane and the rest of his family are spending these days at home on the estate. However, with business slower than usual, it has become virtually impossible for smaller producers like them to promote and sell their Cognac.

By purchasing L’ESSENTIEL, you’ll be supporting the Cognac producer directly, and helping them to maintain their livelihood. The bottle will be shipped directly from their cellar—to your door. We’re as enthusiastic as ever about supporting local Cognac makers, farming families, and exchanging our ideas with our neighbors.

Prunier will only be producing a very small quantity of 50 bottles—available exclusively at Cognac-Expert.com. The bottle itself honors a time gone by, and features original artwork from the Prunier Cognac house.

As with all great things, they come to those who wait that little bit longer. So please be aware there might be a small delay in delivery at this moment in time.
