Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
A stunning Prunier Vintage expression from the Grande Champagne single harvest of 1976
This Millésime was born from the 1976 Grande Champagne harvest and aged in Limousin oak barrels, in the depths of in the House’s mythic cool, damp cellars. Combining 25 years of knowledge and a keen awareness of tastes and aromas, expert Cellar Master Stephane Burnez has determined the precise moment in which this cognac has reached optimum maturity.
The result is a light and exquisitely well-balanced expression, characteristic of the premium growth area’s chalky, subterranean soil.
This limited-edition Vintage is one of just 100 bottles and is loved for the delicate complexity of its aromas and unusual length, which ends on notes of freshly-cut hay. As with all vintage Cognacs, this individually numbered bottle has been approved by the Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac to ensure absolute authenticity.
Maison Prunier is one of the oldest and most revered Cognac houses in the region, with origins dating back to 1769 in the town of Cognac. Each spirit is the synthesis of over 250 years worth of inherited knowledge; of the climate, the terroir and the art of aging.

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.
