Additional Information

Aroma Lovely fresh nose, with aromas of dried fruit, candied oranges and rancio
Ageing Aged in 400 litre oak casks in an 18th century cellar. Cellar conditions are medium dry
Distillation Distillation is with an Armagnac type copper alembic still at around 60 - 62 degrees. The wines are distilled soon after the harvest in order to keep residual tiny lees in suspension
Flavour Very fine and round in the mouth, with flavours of currants and cinnamon. Extremely soft but slightly wooded superb finish of candied fruits.
Grape Variety Mainly Ugni Blanc but a proportion of Baco is also used
Reduction and Strength Cask strength. Natural reduction from storing in wood
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
