Tasting Notes

A family run estate since 1961, this domaine has been completely organic with zero pesticides, herbicides, chemical or synthetic products in their vineyards, all the more impressive as it is not the necessarily the norm in this region. Naturally it lends a more distinctive character to their Armagnacs are are aged with like their wines with minimal intervention, opting instead for a focus on purity and the individuality of each vintage and cask. An exceptional value.

Staff Pick Notes

Armagnac from Ténarèze needs time more than Bas- or Haut-Armagnac. The clay and limestone soils make for grapes with high sugars but low acid, and you end up with a richer style of brandy that develops more slowly. While this means that the younger stuff can be closed off, slower aging and interaction with the wood means that a Ténarèze spirit can be kept in barrel for 40 or 50 years and retain all of its freshness and lovely fruit. This bottle, first laid down in oak 47 years ago, shows aromas of maple, eucalyptus, and cherry tea, with hibiscus, toffee, and cola on the palate. It's elegant and pure in a way you don't see very often, in part due to Séailles' organic farming, and, like the best very old spirits, the flavors come in endless, rolling waves that change, develop, and stay with you long after the glass is empty.
