Tasting Notes:
Inevitably this is the most fiery of the range but it is mellowing with time and has a lovely flavour - surprisingly soft and floral with just a hint of the barrel.
Cépagement:
Ugni Blanc
Upbringing:
The eau de vie generally drips from the travelling alambic still at 56° alcohol. From there it goes into a vat to blend for several days before being pumped into barrels, most of which have been refurbished by the local cooper. After about four years, Armagnacs of the same vintage are blended together once again, then placed into older casks. Apart from an airing once every couple of years, they rest in the well-ventilated chai until bottling. The VSOP is based on 8-year-old Armagnacs.
ABV:
43%

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
