Prunier XO Très Vieille Grande Champagne is a 100% Grande Champagne cognac, created from eaux-de-vie that have been aged on average for around 45 years. There's a reason that the Grande Champagne region is the premier area for creating cognacs; And it's mainly down to the wonderful chalky soil that allows for consistent growing conditions and allowing the steady maturation of the grapes.
This wonderful cognac contains elements that have come from Prunier's Paradise cellars, and the cellar master's expertise has created a product that combines finess, complexity, and smoothness. From aromas of candied fruits to tastes of spices sch as cinnamon and pepper, through to nuts, chocolate, pastries, and tobacco, every moment spent enjoying this old cognac takes you on a journey.
And its superb quality has not gone unnoticed. In the 2006 France Review of Wines it was rated 4.5 out of 5 stars. And in the International Wine and Spirit Competition in London it was awarded a gold medal.
This is truly a great old cognac, and one that offers superb value for money.
Great experience for the price!
I had the pleasure to visit a friend in Cognac and taste this very old XO in one of the eldest family owned Cognac house I've been said.. I am not an expert, more used to whiskey, but this is definitely one of the best Cognac (even spirit? oh!) I have ever experienced. I have tried several classic XO (small and famous brands by curiosity) and a few extra old ones, but this one offers the best of the most famous cru, the Grande Champaign. So smooth... I also recommend it to people that are not used to Cognac because it's too strong, too expensive or whatever reason cause they would be definitely suprised. Unfortunately, it is hard to find, lucky me I passed by.. Long live Cognac!
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.
