Description

An Ode to Australia: Prunier Cognac XXO Family Series Number 1 

One step up from the regular XO is the XXO, and Prunier are next in line with their very own innovative take on the newest Cognac age denomination. The Prunier Cognac XXO Family Series Number 1 represents at least 14 years of aging, after the XXO age category became official in November 2018. Aromatic, complex and floral in nature, this Cognac will be a sure winner with any connoisseur.

The first of Prunier's Family Series, they are only produced in very small quantities. In fact, this Cognac is by no means easy to come by. You will have to travel to Australia, as this limited edition Cognac was created for Mr Dale Cooper and his wine domain in Geelong, Australia!

The introduction of the latest age category has caused a certain buzz throughout the region, and offers an exciting opportunity for cellar masters, blenders and distillers to create something that has never been seen before.

After many years of passing down their savoir-faire through many generations, they have created an assembly of two Vintage Cognacs from the years 1992 and 1996 respectively. The eaux-de-vie comes from the Fins Bois cru from the north of the Charente region, and has been aged for over a decade in dark and humid cellars of the family estate. The two eaux-de-vie from which the blend originates were stored in barrels and sealed by an officiator to guarantee their time spent aging.

The alcohol content of this XXO Cognac has only been reduced naturally and over time, and there is no added sugar nor caramel. It is therefore a truly rare and exceptional eaux-de-vie.

Presentation of the Cognac XXO Prunier

With only 500 bottles available, it’s a once in a lifetime Cognac opportunity. The top of the label is a photo taken from the Maison Prunier archives of Gaston Prunier’s associate in Australia, Ambroise Lamandé.

Each bottle is numbered, and has been marked with a wax stamp made in the cellars. Each label has been signed by the Managing Director of Maison Prunier, Stéphane Burnez and Dale Cooper. It also arrives in a stunning presentation box that denotes the precious nature of this XXO.

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.
