Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
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.

A really fine cognac - Prunier XO Très Vielle Grande Champagne
Dark amber. golden highlights. On the nose also on the mature, dark side with leather, chocolate, dried fruits, fine tobacco and some menthol freshness. On the palate the cognac is fullbodiied and oily, more concentrated than you would suspect from 40% ABV. The finish is quite long and savoury...
This was an early favourite in my cognac life. And after tasting it again, it still is. This cognac is rather dark and has a mature expression on the nose. I find menthol, leather, tobacco and chocolate. In the mouth it is very tasty and concentrated. You could believe this is both older and stronger...
