Description

Prunier Rare Vintage 1971 Petite Champagne Cognac

Prunier Rare Vintage 1971 Petite Champagne Cognac is an unrivalled and unique Vintage blend of eaux-de-vie that is now almost 50 years old. This 1971 rare vintage is made up of grapes from the magnificent Petit Champagne region - renowned for its chalky soil and one of a kind maritime climate. Cognacs of this cru tend to take longer to mature, which subsequently ensures an exceptional quality that is most definitely worth the waiting time. Boasting powerful aromas of beeswax, polished wood, nutmeg and brown tobacco, this Cognac is surprisingly sweet on the palate and offers a beautiful magnitude with suburb length. A remarkable must-try for Cognac connoisseurs seeking an incomparable tasting experience not to be forgotten.

For over 250 years, Maison Prunier have been creating unique expressions by carefully putting each product under the magnifying glass. Spanning over eleven generations, Prunier stands as one of the oldest Cognac houses in the prestigious Cognac region and has learnt how to keep its own history alive together with its identity and esteem for its products. Without forgetting the past the house of Prunier continues without respite in striving to offer the best quality products. Through their passion for the craft, each member of the family has maintained the motto: quality and respect of local traditions. Contained inside each and every bottle rests the history and hard-work of the house’s family heritage.

Presented in a traditional decanter showcasing the Cognacs elegant golden brown coloring catches the light beautifully.

The powerful aromas and the naturally sweet palate of this rare 1971 Petite Champagne Cognac should be savoured down to every last drop in the glass. Pair with a pure, dark chocolate as its bitterness on the palette combines blissfully against the notes of nutmeg and cocoa found in this delectable eaux-de-vie.

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.
