The House Prunier is located in Cognac with 250 years of history that is for more than two centuries.
Since 1769, the House Prunier has been putting its mark alongside the great names of Cognac.
The first traces of the Prunier family date back to 1701, but it was not until 1769 that the bottling and export activities would have really started at Cognac, as evidenced by the old Prunier bottle labels.
Transcending through the ages, the 1850 building has seen each generation grow up. The walls, like photographs, carry the family memory. Even today, this construction is the soul of the House Prunier.
Description Prunier Très Vieille XO Cognac.
Conceived by Jean Burnez, grandfather of the current President, in the early 1930s under the name of 'Patriarche', this cup remains the personal selection of the head of the family. While the base, made up of very old cognacs aged in cool, damp cellars, has remained unchanged for three generations, each Cellar Master has brought his own personal touch to the product by adding a few eaux-de-vie, while respecting the natural, round and complex character of this great cognac.
Claude, Jean's son, made it evolve towards a fuller style with more woody eaux-de-vie, while Stéphane, his son and current Maître de Chai, develops a slightly more modern and lighter style, with less wood, preferring to find more the natural taste of the eaux-de-vie instead of that of the barrels in which they have aged.
Through historical and future evolutions, the Très Vieille Grande Champagne will remain one of the unavoidable signatures of the Prunier House, a magnificent example of what the first growth of cognac is capable of.
