Armagnacs are aged in oak casks to develop their flavours. This vintage was harvested in 1979 and aged for almost 40 years in wood before being bottled.
|Aroma||Prune and woody vanilla|
|Distillation||Most armagnacs have been produced using the continuous still with a series of plates over which the wines boil until the optimum level when the volatile steam is captured and then condensed.|
|Flavour||Lightly caramelized with cocoa and notes of toasted nuts|
|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|
