Privilege, Reserve du Prince Paradis OC. Grande Fine Champagne Cognac. Limited Selection. Bottle # BCD 213. "Regarded by the Most Respected Licensed Appraisers as an Authentic Pre-World War I Vintage". Level: (u.2.8cm below neck band) 750ml. 80 proof. (1 bottle)
"At the outbreak of World War I, the mobilized French growers walled up their cellars to preserve their treasure from German invasion. But, unfortunately many never returned. Privilege 'Reserve du Prince' originates in an exhumated cave. The inheritor insisted upon remaining anonymous for that was laid down in an undetermined time by his grandfather who disappeared in Verdun's battle in 1917. This was confirmed to us by the most respected and licensed appraisers in Cognac. After a long tasting, they all agreed that Privilege 'reserve du Prince had remained unviolated since it was stored in casks long before World War I."
