Jean Burnez, essentially the great grandfather of the current generation, blended a new product line. This new line symbolises the pinnacle of the Prunier range. Though the vast majority of the liquid is very old Cognac from humid and cool cellars, each master blender adds their own personal touch. Jean’s son, Claude developed a heavier style with greater emphasis on wood. While Claude’s son and current master blender Stéphane prefers a lighter, more modern style of Cognac with a greater focus on the Eaux de Vie. Throughout these evolutions, the Très Viellle Grande Champagne will remain the signature blend of Maison Prunier and the master blender of that generation.
Initially the aromas are very closed and subtle. Giving your Cognac a slight swirl will reveal notes of leather, candied fruits, walnuts and dark chocolate.
With further inspection and more time, the bouquet of fragrances open further releasing hints of vanilla and tobacco.
Sipping will allow you to taste a floral and delightful elegance, balanced against stronger flavours of hazelnuts, dark chocolate and toffee.
This gradually fades away into a long and pleasant finish.
