Tasting review

Eye: A bright brownish gold.

Nose: A dense Cognac with a lot of power. A Cognac that needs to breathe, the first nose does not give much away. The second gives aromas of tobacco, blond leather and aromatic menthol. It is a characteristic nose of its year.

Palate: Fine tannins and power of nuts. A beautiful expression. Delicate length, notes of English toffee and licorice.

Description

A Petite Champagne Vintage from 1986

For many years, the Charentais have enjoyed their Cognacs straight from the barrel and have appreciated the art of a fine Vintage Cognac. The Prunier 1986 Petite Champagne Vintage Cognac is an expression of the 1986 harvest at natural cask strength after being aged in oak barrels. Bottled in February 2017, this is one of Prunier’s best examples of a fine Millésime 1986 Cognac. Available in small quantities, this is Cognac in its purest and most natural art form.

The Petite Champagne cru is characterized by its chalky soil and unique maritime climate, and makes up 130,000 acres of the Cognac region. 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.

The secret of Prunier Vintage Cognacs

Located in the heart of Cognac town, the Maison Prunier is truly unique. 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 expressions by carefully putting each product under the magnifying glass.

How to enjoy the Prunier 1986 Petite Champagne Vintage Cognac 70cl

Enjoy this expression of the 1986 harvest neat.
