This copper coloured Baco grape Bas-Armagnac offers aromas of apple pie with caramelised sugar, gentle spices (cinnamon and cloves), dried flowers and winey freshness. Fruits develop with dark cherries and then caramelising melted butter. Hints of black tea together with tobacco, resin and a slight woody character contribute to a drying nose. The refined taste has gentle tannins and woody spices balanced with vanilla custard, prunes and apples. This turns slightly nutty with wax furniture polish. It is sweet and warming with a short and drying finish that leaves you wanting more. This small estate and vineyard was purchased by the current owners in 1990. Only eight hectares are used for making Armagnac.
