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.

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