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 years old is severely strict, only the most impeccable batches are chosen to one day become the 20 year old. Given that each 20 year old batch is unique the consumer will find distinctive differences between batches from different years.
Currently the 20 Years Old is a blend of two Cognacs from the Fins Bois area of production from the harvest years dating 1996 and 1992.
Opening aromas are very fine with orange peel, cedar, almond, linden flower.
The palate is full of beautiful, natural tannins of old oak combining with the aromas and a distinctive hazelnut flavour.
A long and gentle finish leaving you only wanting another sip.
