Tasting Notes

The mother & daughter duo running this multi-generation independent family domaine take care of every step of production from growing the grapes, harvesting, distilling aging and blending to make sure everything is done to their standards and executed on the family farm. We selected this single cask directly from the family's private cellars and after 22yrs in a new local Gascon oak cask the brandy is overflowing with decadent flavors without becoming superflous. There is a regalness instilled here at its very core along with impressive balance and integration of alcohol making it a pleasure to linger over and sip slowly. Notes include poached pears, cinnamon dusted chocolate, candied mushrooms, saffron, preserved lilac, brown butter and deep resinous oak.

Staff Pick Notes

An exquisite Armagnac from a multi-generational producer showing incredible quality and age for the price. Aromas of cloves and marmalade. A rich palette that conjures up scenes of autumn and winter- forest floor, chopped cedar, chestnuts - it's a cozy feeling. There is a sweetness with spice and earth, and saltiness. And the texture is sublime ...full, slow, syrupy. There's no mistaking this for anything but an Armagnac of high calber. An elixir to linger over post meal, this is dessert. Gift this to yourself! You deserve it.
