The House of Prunier specialises in the art of ageing and blending, carefully source grapes directly from winegrowers and distillers all over Cognac, enabling them to select the best vintages from any cru.
It was Claude Burnez, the grandfather of the current generation, who had the idea of selecting exceptional stocks of Cognac and ageing them in government supervised cellars. This allows Prunier to produce and prove specific age-statement Cognacs.
Quality control for the 20 year old Cognac is severely strict and only the most impeccable batches are chosen to one day become the 20 year old product. Given that each 20 year old batch is unique, the consumer will find distinctive differences between batches from different years. Currently, Prunier 20 Years Old is a blend of two Cognacs from the Fins Bois area of production, from the harvest years dating 1992 and 1996.
