Details

Unusually this is distilled at a lower range than most in the Castarede range and has a fine prune flavour. The style is unmistakenly Bas with its rich fruity flavours.

Additional Information

Aroma A distinguished nose which gives some nice notes of crystallised fruits and rancio. A little herbal with some bay, nutmeg and prune.
Ageing All Castarede armagnacs are well aged in oak casks to provide the maximum tannins. The cellars are next to the Baise ensuring that they are always damp and providing the best conditions for these fine armagnacs.
Distillation Single distillation at around 58 – 60 degrees providing more complex aromas and taste
Flavour Richer than some of Florence Castarede's armagnacs. This is much more nutty and has some toffee and roasted walnut flavours.
Grape Variety Mainly Colombard, some Folle Blanche and sometimes some Ugni Blanc
Reduction and Strength 40% abv. Small reduction occurs with distilled water only.
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
