Prunier Rare Vintage 1974 Petite Champagne Cognac
The Prunier Rare Vintage 1974 Petite Champagne Cognac is a unique, full-bodied Cognac as a result of being distilled in rich lees and then later aged in old casks. Recognised for its chalky land content, the Petite Champagne region is credited as the second cru that produces grapes that are later matured for a long period of time in order to produce Cognac of exceptional quality and all-round finesse. Offering a melange of contrasting aromas such as white flowers, wax and blond tobacco against a powerful palate containing notes of English toffee - Rare Vintage 1974 is an exquisite eaux-de-vie that is certain to tantalize your taste-buds.

About Prunier Cognac
Steeped in tradition, Cognac Prunier is a family run firm with cellars in the heart of the town of Cognac.
