Tasting review

Eye: A brilliant yellow gold and amber.

Nose: First nose, a lot of rancio. Dominant aromas include licorice, cocoa, quince jelly, leather and hazelnut. A lot of round body and finesse. You cannot taste the high alcohol content. A precise and pinpointed nose.

Palate: Candied orange peels, powerful and rich. The round body softens the power of the alcohol. A great length with a wonderful aromatic finish.

Description

A Grande Champagne Vintage from 1969

Drinking Cognac straight from the barrel has been an important part of enjoying Cognac for many years, and a fine Vintage is certainly appreciated in the Charente region. The Prunier 1969 Grande Champagne Vintage Cognac is a unique expression of the 1969 harvest in the Premier Cru. Bottled at natural cask strength after being aged for 49 years in oak barrels, it is a beautiful Prunier Millésime 1969 Cognac that offers a perfect snapshot of the Grande Champagne. Available in limited quantities, it is Cognac in its most fleeting and natural form.

The Grande Champagne cru is characterized by its chalky soil and unique maritime climate. Cognacs from this region typically take longer to age, but are certainly worth the wait. The long maturation makes for complex spirits that linger in the mouth. 85 million years ago, the area was more or less the corner of the Atlantic seabed when sea levels were at their high levels. The millions of fossils and seashells were deposited in the area and formed part of the Santonian era. It is this very combination of factors that contributes to fine and floral eaux-de-vie.

The secret of Prunier Vintage Cognacs

Located in the heart of Cognac town, the Maison Prunier is truly unique. They are one of the oldest producers in the Grande Champagne. Their Paradise cellar is said to benefit from the underground river that flows beneath the cellars, giving the products their remarkable taste. For over 250 years, Maison Prunier have been creating unique Vintage expressions.
