Armagnacs are aged in oak casks to develop their flavours. This vintage was harvested in 1979 and aged for almost 40 years in wood before being bottled.
Did you know? Those born in 1979 share their birth year with Pink, Kate Hudson, James McAvoy and the aptly named singer, Brandy!
|Aroma||Prune and woody vanilla|
|Distillation||Most armagnacs have been produced using the continuous still with a series of plates over which the wines boil until the optimum level when the volatile steam is captured and then condensed.|
|Flavour||Lightly caramelized with cocoa and notes of toasted nuts|
|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|
