Prunier Vintage 1972 Petite Champagne Cognac
Here is a great success of 50 years of aging in old barrels and in wet cellars.
Color: Beautiful shiny bronze.
Nose: Dense rancio attack (undergrowth, wax, dark chocolate, toffee, empyreumatic notes).
There is a note of candied orange and honey.
Nice overall breadth.
Palate: Perfect continuity of the nose with notes of old oak.
Nice power despite the deliberately low alcohol content (aging in a humid cellar).
Nice length with fine tannins.
Cognac Petite Champagne
The Prunier House is located in Cognac with 250 years of history, more than two centuries.
Since 1769, the Prunier House left its mark next to Cognac great names.
The first traces of the Prunier family date back to 1701, but it wasn’t until 1769 that the bottling activity and exportations really started in Cognac, like it can be seen in ancient labels on Prunier bottles.
Through the eras, the 1850 building saw every generation growing. The walls, like pictures, carry the family’s memories. Still today, this construction is the soul of the Prunier family.
