Eye : Bright and gold

Nose : Fine and harmonious, mainly dry fruits (hazelnuts, almonds) completed by crystallized fruits (apricots).

Palate : Complex and light, no excess of wood, distinguished.

This cognac has been aged in an original way : first 15 years in new oak casks stored in a very humid cellar, then aged in old casks in a drier cellar thus allowing to save all Grande Champagne notes.

Description

Prunier Rare Vintage 1988 Petite Champagne Cognac

A stunning single year blend, Prunier Rare Vintage 1988 Petite Champagne Cognac that has been aged via the original method of allowing the eaux-de-vie to age in new oak casks stored in a very humid cellar for the first 15 years of the maturation process. Then later, moved to mature in old casks in a much drier cellar in order to preserve all of the wonderful aromas. With dominating notes of dried fruits on the palate, it is a complex, light Cognac, and whilst there is no excess of wood- it will certainly leave you pining for more.

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.

This Prunier rare vintage is presented in a traditional decanter showcasing the Cognacs elegant gold colouring.

The delectable fruity notes of this Cognac speak volumes by themselves. So we recommend serving 1988 Rare Vintage neat or on the rocks.

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.
