Prunier Rare Vintage 1977 Petite Champagne Cognac
The Prunier Rare Vintage 1977 Petite Champagne Cognac is a beautifully dense vintage blend of eaux-de-vie that is worthy of a place in any serious Cognac connoisseur’s collection. As the Rare Vintage 1977 was aged in new oak barrels for 10 years, it contains wonderful woody notes, both on the nose and across the palate. Meanwhile a dominant, fine rancio lingers through the senses for a powerful and long finish.

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 Prunier family heritage.

How to enjoy
Rare blends 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. Prunier recommends serving this particular Cognac as a digestive as it is a pleasant Cognac to taste at the end of a meal with a cigar.
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.
