Eye: Solid amber. 

Nose: Rosewood, incense and blood oranges, slowly developing into pink grapefruit, Turkish delight, thyme and rosemary. Reminiscent of vintage perfume. 

Palate: At first, powerful oak - then a scattering of rose petals, muscat, fermented tea, cacao, dried strawberries and more of those blood oranges. Mint leaves and florals dominate the finish.

Description

Prunier 1967 Grande Champagne Cognac: Vintage Florals

The Prunier 1967 Vintage Grande Champagne Cognac is an excellent example of a wonderful harvest from the Premier Cru. The House of Prunier are truly masters of vintage Cognac, and this well-matured example is no exception. Bottled in 2011 at a cask strength of 52.8% and without any additives, it shows exceptionally complex and powerful aromas. Truly a delight for anyone who enjoys the finer things in life.

The Ugni Blanc grapes used for this rare Cognac were harvested upon the hills of the Premier Cru in 1967, after a fairly challenging growing season. Only 637 bottles were produced out of this single cask - making it a rare expression indeed. 

Unlike larger Cognac houses, Maison Prunier do not grow their own grapes; they specialize in buying eaux-de-vie directly from growers and distillers. This way they can select the most exceptional and unusual vintages to age in their humid cellars by the river Charente. Today the company is run by the Burnez family, thanks to Jean Burnez who took over when his aunt’s husband Alphone Prunier passed away without any descendants. Under the watchful eye of Jean’s children, we hope to see many more exceptional vintages from this grand Cognac house for years to come. 

Presentation of the Bottle

This vintage Cognac is presented in a traditional wax-sealed bottle and wooden gift box. The intricate, classic label neatly identifies the individual bottle number.

The bottles used for Prunier vintages have been inspired by a hand-blown bottle used in the 19th Century by the family of Prunier’s manager Claude Burnez. The original bottle contained air bubbles in the glass, which are emulated today by manually injecting air into the glass. It may be a time-consuming process, but the result is truly stunning.

How to Enjoy Prunier 1967 Vintage Grande Champagne Cognac

Sit back and relax; this is one to take your time with, perfect to end a meal or a long day. Gently let the Cognac breathe in a tulip glass before taking a sip - it’s a taste of sunny days gone by.

About Prunier Cognac

Steeped in tradition, Cognac Prunier is a family run firm with cellars in the heart of the town of Cognac. The house does not own its own vineyards, instead, they buy the eaux-de-vie directly from supplying vine growers and distillers each year, and then carry out the ageing process in their own cellars.
