Description

Prunier Rare Vintage 1973 Petite Champagne Cognac

The Prunier Rare Vintage 1973 Petite Champagne Cognac is a wonderfully unique offering from the house of Prunier, that is made up of grapes harvested in the winter of 1973/74. Boasting prime quality and delicious aromas, this rare vintage offers an unparalleled finesse. Long in the mouth, it contains a well-balanced and naturally sweet roundness that unveils hints of orange, vanilla and cinnamon, alongside other subtle aromas such as almond and fresh hazelnut on the nose.

Recognised for its chalky soil and unique maritime climate - Cognacs of the Petite Champagne terroir tend to take longer to mature, which subsequently ensures an exceptional quality that is well worth the waiting time.

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.

Rare vintage Cognacs like the Prunier Rare Vintage range deserve your utmost attention: pour gently into a tulip glass and let it rest for 30 seconds, sip slowly and let this one of a kind Cognac do the talking. For a slightly different tasting experience, add a small dash of mineral water to allow the aromas to open up even further.

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.
