Our oenologists' opinion
Amber colour with copper reflections, limpid and brilliant. Nose open to bitter oranges and toasted almonds. Attack on the sweetness, then very powerful. Not aggressive. One finds notes of bitter orange. Long and persistent finish, with a nice sweetness and caramel notes.
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.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
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. This Armagnac has received the gold medal at the World Spirits Awards in 2010.
