Details

This Bas Armagnac comes from a blend of two cepages, the Ugni Blanc and Baco. Its fawn coloured robe with some red copper gives some rancio flavours reflecting its long stay in barrels.

Did you know?  Those born in 1959 share their birth year with Hugh Grant, Bono and Diego Maradona. 

Additional Information

Aroma A spicy bouquet of sandal wood, vanilla, banana
Ageing All Castarede armagnacs are well aged in oak casks to provide the maximum tannins. The cellars are next to the Baise ensuring that they are always damp and providing the best conditions for these fine armagnacs.
Distillation Single distillation at around 58 – 60 degrees providing more complex aromas and taste
Flavour The mouth is soft and mellow but this eau de vie has kept the nervous edge of the baco cepage
Grape Variety Ugni Blanc and Baco
Viticulture The climate is soft and humid with sunny autumns and the soil is made of siliceous clay which is poor in lime, giving Bas Armagnacs a lightness and fragrance with subtle tastes
