Details

One of the most important collections of Armagnac vintages is owned by the Castarède family; the oldest dates from 1893. Their Armagnacs have the appearance of liquid gold with touches of topaz, sienna and orange highlights.

Additional Information

Aroma Complex aromas of dried fig, eucalyptus and blond tobacco.
Ageing All Castarede armagnacs are well aged in oak casks. The cellars are next to the Baise river ensuring that they are always damp.
Distillation Single distillation at around 58 – 60 degrees. This provides more complex aromas and taste
Flavour Rich flavours of dried fruits, prune, grape, orange bark and almond with a finish of white chocolate.
Grape Variety Mainly Colombard.
Reduction and Strength Limited reduction with distilled water
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
