Ageing: From 1 to 60 years in 400L-French oak barrels.
Bottling: Bottled on-site, according to the orders.
Tasting notes: Over time, the brandy gets a beautiful amber color, then mahogany. The oaky notes become refined, vanilla and prune aromas grow, the « rancio » character appears. The alcohol heat turns into power and unctuosity.
Wine service advice: Armagnac is drinkable as an aperitif and after-dinner liqueur in a brandy-glass. It’s necessary to heat up the Armagnac with your hand, the heat between 20°C and 25°C will concentrate and develop the aromas. Also great for cooking and cocktails.
