Details

Sadly Domaine de Larriou no longer make armagnacs but they still have large quantities in their cellars. The style is complex with crystalised fruits and prune showing through but there are glorious flavours of roasted almonds, vanilla and spices all competing in this lovely armagnac.

Additional Information

Aroma Some wonderful complex sweet spices, roasted hazelnut and coffee aromas consistent with all their armagnacs.
Distillation Probably distilled around 60 - 63 degrees, distilled in traditional Alembic plate stills.
Flavour A wonderful armagnac house whose style is consistent across their small range of vintages. Flavours of cocoa, burnt coffee and spice with a long finish. Their balance is very good with extra strength complementing the taste.
Grape Variety Baco 50%, Ugni Blanc 25%, Folle Blanche 25%
Reduction and Strength Only very slight reduction, armagnacs are sold at their optimum strength .
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
