Tasting Notes

This little gem hails from the Armagnac region, that special corner of the southwest of France and arguably the most important place on the planet for brandy production. The Roque family has been transforming one of the regions prized fruits, plums, into irresistibly good old aged brandies since the 19th century. The spirit shows incredible finesse with a supple texture and great purity of fruit accented with shades of exotic spices and the Gascon forest.

Staff Pick Notes

A family business since 1835, it is now run by fifth generation owner Louis Roque. Located in Souillac (Valley of Dordogne) since 1905, the Roque family has become a true master of making eau de vie. The secret behind La Vieille Prune's beautiful aromatic and unmatched taste comes from the quality of the fruit they use combined with the savoir-faire that has been transmitted from generation to generation. Obviously a rich plum aroma on the nose that is matched by the palate, a subtle sweetness envelops the entire mouth with a warm elegance. An excellent after-dinner digestif.
