Prunier achieves perfect maturity with this VSOP which is aged in humid and cool cellars for five to six years.
Using small oak barrels from the French forests of Limousin, Allier and Tronçais. This product retains the fruitiness of young Cognacs while expressing complex aromas associated with the V.S.O.P. quality.
Brand & Family History
Since 1769 the House of Prunier has been part of the local and global history of Cognac.
The oldest traces of the family go back to 1701, when the family worked with local growers as wholesalers. After being inspired to create their own brand, the first “Prunier” bottles appear in 1769.
Jean Prunier built the first of many cellars in 1850 within the Cognac region, where they still stand to this day. Now Prunier has expanded to yet more facilities such as their cellars in the village of Gimeax, known for their ideal location for the ageing of Cognac.
Since the beginning, the original premises have been watching over each generation. One after the other, playing their part and leaving behind their own heritage in the form of the Vintages that Prunier exclusively reserves.
At first, the aromas are delicate. Tea, fresh almonds and white flowers.
With a closer inspection, the fragrance is soft, feminine and delicate.
The palate is round and well balanced. Giving way to delicate flavours similar to that of the aromas and combined with a very fine tannin.
The initial fragrance is bold and dramatic.
Complex aromas of tobacco, tea and toffee.
On the palate, a sense of fullness and strength with mellow flavours of dry fruits, almonds and hazelnuts.
