Tasting Notes

Wine Enthusiast - Very Good - Recommended (85-89/100) Bouquet - shy at first, but afer contact with air the aromas begin to peek out.  On the palate, a solid, woody, caramel-like first flavor stage; by mid-palate, bittersweet, astringent flavors of sap, palm oil, resin and tart pear get added to the flavor mix. Aftertaste is medium-long, dry and resiny."

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.
