At 40 years, the Armagnac’s style is definitely apparent. The quality of the oak used is very important, as the right use of a quality barrel will bring complexity and finesse to the Armagnac; elements that can be judged and appreciated after 40 years in contact with the wood.
Wine Enthusiast 95 points - Pour a glass of this complex, luxurious brandy and watch how the flavors evolve. At first, its reads fleetingly sweet, thanks to its notes of vanilla, orange peel and juicy clementine. Ultimately, it finishes dry, with a toffee flavor that unfurls to reveal touches of vanilla, spice, dark chocolate, sandalwood and black tea.
