A wonderfully rich Armagnac from the Bas Armagnac region. Distilled over 80 years ago, it is a reddish-brown colour with shades of copper.
|Aroma||Notes of wood, raisins and vanilla.|
|Ageing||Armagnac is traditionally aged in a 400-420 litre oak cask.|
|Distillation||Traditional armagnac is distilled once in a small continuous still called an alembic which issues a spirit between 60 and 62 degrees.|
|Flavour||Flavours of rancio and light notes of coffee. Full and elegant in the mouth with a long and strong finish.|
|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|
