Tasting Notes

Call it traditional, old-fashioned, artisan or basic but what is hard to argue with is that the insistence at this domaine of making Armagnacs according to the ancient practices yields some of the most magical spirit you could hope to get your hands on. This husband and wife team live and breathe right next to their stills and cellars at this tiny, independent domaine in Gascony. We hand selected this single cask directly from the domaine's private cellars and it was bottled at full proof with zero additives ever added. A truly transportive level of complexity awaits on the palate with stand-out notes of saffron threads and exotic spices buttressed by sous bois, espresso beans, dark chocolate, apricot chutney apple butter, assam tea and pipe tobacco. Aside from the spare mezcal or rare eau de vie, we can't imagine it getting much better than this at this price.

Staff Pick Notes

Louis Dupuy was a humble man. He lived a simple life in the Gascogne countryside and had a mere 4 hectares of vines. This made enough for one cask of brandy, which was left to age in the chai next to his house. Seeking a pure expression he bottled at cask strength without any additives. Dupuy died in 1995, but his daughter and son-in-law have carried on his tradition. Production remains minuscule, and what they do make is not sold commercially (except here) so to say this is rare is an understatement. A bottle of this age and hand-crafted quality would be 10 times the price if it rhymed with snappy man twinkle. Luckily, not many have caught on to the Armagnac secret, which is great for those of us who have. So please, don’t tell anyone else. M. Dupuy would have liked it that way.
