A rich taste of dried orange and kumquats with maron de glace and almonds on the nose.
|Aroma||A nice nose full of freshness, with aromas of maron de glace and almonds.|
|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||Dried orange and kumquat. Very fine and round in the mouth. Lots of softness, with a superb finish of candied fruit and light wood.|
|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|
