Chilly rain in the springtime resulted in late bud break, followed by an early summer that was also cold and wet. Nice weather and welcome heat settled in as of 10 August, and the weather stayed that way through to grape harvest in early October under brilliant sunshine. The grapes were in the peak of health and give wine that had a fairly high sugar content.
Alcohol content at bottling:
This Armagnac is still lively, with a spicy woodsy nose and dashes of vanilla and citrus. Powerful mouth, dominated by spice and leather. Very long on the palate with a suave finish.
