Color: Armagnac gorgeous iridescent brown.
Initial sniffs find bittersweet, intense, assertive and very nutty aromas; further aeration time accelerates the bittersweet concentration of oaky resin. Palate entry is seriously sap- and maple-like, then by midpalate the taste shifts from sap to the resiny, seed-like and bitter flavor of unseasoned oak, road tar and black tea leaves. Finish is firm but so resiny and tea-like that it's just flat-out bitter.
Gastronomy: Armagnac - the perfect digestif, harmonizes perfectly with a cigar and a cup of organic coffee.
Armagnac matures in oak barrels, which are created in the estate. During the exposure of wood tannins stand out, some of the liquid evaporates and the strength of the drink is reduced by about 1-2 degrees per year. Alcohol is first poured into new oak barrels, and then poured into older, that provides a smooth development of the beverage, wood scents are refined at the same time, they appear shades of vanilla and plums, followed by evaporation of the alcohol taste becomes softer. Usually Armagnac kept in barrels for no longer than 40 years - it is up to that age it is able to improve their properties. Then it is poured into a glass bottle or vats where the aging process is terminated. They Armagnac retains many years the castle and its wonderful aroma.
