We were fortunate to obtain another bottle of this very rare 1938 Armagnac. This one was exported to America some years ago and consequently, is in a slightly larger 75 cl bottle.

Additional Information

Aroma There are aromas of cedar, crystallised fruits and prunes but more complex smells of straw and nuts are also in existence.
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 There is a richness of crystallised fruits in syrup flavour but also flavours of roasted nuts. These armagnacs have delightfully subtle flavours
Grape Variety Mainly Colombard, some Folle Blanche and sometimes some Ugni Blanc
Reduction and Strength All of Castarede’s armagnacs are reduced naturally in oak and sold at 40%
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
