Description

Baco grape variety. Beautiful sandy terroir. This estate is unique in that its Armagnacs are aged in barrels made from the estate’s own oak trees. This used to be a common practice, with growers exchanging a tree for a few barrels at the cooper’s, and the cooper collecting the rest of the tree. It’s a way to get everyone working, without spending a single penny.  

Tasting note

Nose

Acid gummy colas, freeze-dried pineapple rings, black licorice, hazelnut butter, Chinese 5-spice, cumin, cooked pears with cloves, caramelized brown onions, topped with shavings of Gruyère.

Palate

A bright, warm explosion of panela (a blend of black sugar and molasses), hazelnut and marzipan. Then, on tiptoe, a fruity flavor… prune juice, and a hint of acidity reminiscent of a good-level tonic. Tart but not too bitter, the result is very pleasant. Then come the raw almonds. The alcohol on the palate isn’t overpowering, but leaves plenty of room for a rainbow of flavors. The taste buds are at their wits’ end on this mellow armagnac, with its beautiful length and a feeling of “coming back to life”.

Overall

Lovely length on the palate. Woody notes, pepper, tobacco, cinnamon, caramel and citrus. An armagnac for those who like their spirits a little stronger, like Rhums Caroni or Rhum Demerara.
