This blend of forgotten barrels took place in 2011 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the purchase of the estate.
To make Armagnac you need time, time behind you and time ahead of you. Time to blend what past generations have carefully left you, and time to age what future generations will be the ones to taste.
The quintessential result of this patient work is presented in the Carafe des Siècles, engraved with the family monogram and housed in a lovely box made of pedunculate oak straight from the forests in Aquitaine. The very same oak that is used to make the barrels in which our estate Armagnacs age.
The Carafe des Siècles is a unique blend of Armagnacs distilled between 1800 and 1980, characterised by exquisite finesse and a voluptuous palate. Totally unaggressive, it exhales infinitely complex aromas of floral notes, hints of spice, vanilla, cocoa, candied fruit. Extremely long on the palate with exceptionally persistent and powerful aromas, it is also incredibly delicate and mellow.
