After a rainy and cool spring, summer settled in June followed by hot weather in July and August with little rain and some heavy thunderstorms. September sunny and warm until the harvest which took place at the end of September and October, giving wines relatively high in alcohol but complex and with perfect rates of acidity.
Alcohol content at bottling:
Date of distillation:
Color: pronounced amber, with coppery reflections.
Nose: very greedy, pastry-like, on gingerbread and candied fruits, with touches of almonds, nutmeg, liquorice.
Palate: very expressive, concentrated and complex, with marked notes of candied fruit. A very long finish on spices (black pepper).
“Fresh-baked pastries, crushed vanilla beans, and delicate floral notes show on the nose. Creamy and ripe on the palate, this Armagnac shows layers of complexity, notes of French baguette, toasted butter, walnuts, and dried peaches. Long and persistent finish.” (Ultimate Spirit Challenge 2021)
