Tasting Notes

This five hectares estate has ancient roots and is judiciously adherent to tradition but the Rozes family, whom run the domaine, know where they come from and are confident enough to be very forward thinking in an otherwise sleepy part of France. Perhaps only in Armagnac and perhaps only from an estate as exacting as this could you have a twenty year expression also be your entry level flagship. The brandy itself is old school Tenareze in structure with deep layered flavors of stewed fruits, roasted nuts and spicy oak.

Staff Pick Notes

Hello rum and whiskey drinkers, how are you? Well? Listen, I don’t know how to say this politely so I’m just going to ask straight out. Why on earth aren’t you drinking French brandies?! Domaine d’Aurensan has blended four single cask Armagnacs from 1990, 1981, 1978, and 1973 to make this tremendous spirit. Ditch the snifter and pour it into your biggest Bordeaux glass, it’ll amplify its mouthwatering aromas of rich brown sugar, ground Colombian coffee, and subtle wood spices. The palate has primary notes of molasses, hazelnuts, and lasting spice but you’ll find secondary notes emerge as it breathes in the glass. Look, you can compete in the rat race for famous whiskies and rums or you can buy aAmagnacs of better quality while no one is looking.
