Our oenologists' opinion
A nice nose of bitter orange and grilled almond is released by this amber-colored Armagnac. This tendency continues at the tasting where notes of bitter orange are mixing smoothly with its power and its sweet taste. It is followed, during the persistent finish, by the flavor of caramel. The whole is creating a pleasurable and pleasant tasting moment.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
Armagnac is born of the confrontation of cultures, Roman by the introduction of the vine, yet Arab and Celtic with the barrel.
